I have to write today! June 21st is International Day of Yoga! It was declared as such by the United Nations in 2015. The theme of 2019 is Climate Action, so what does the 2019 logo depict?
The Yogis’ hands, joining above her/his head signify “union”. Yoga is the union of body, mind, and spirit, but yoga also brings people together. All over the world on June 21st, people unite in the powerful, yet peaceful practice of yoga. The orange halo encircling the head and arms, represents the element of fire. The globe around the head of the Yogi represents our “oneness”, with the global civilization, as we practice together. Moving down the body of the seated Yogi, the green leaves symbolize “nature”, and the brown leaves, the “earth”. The blue body of the Yogi is representative of the element of “water” throughout our body.
Enjoy this day of power, peace, and action – practice your yoga today!
