Nelson Event – Sunday 20thth June at Trafalgar St Hall

IYD Poster

With the theme of 2021 “Yoga at Home and Yoga with the Family,” given the current international climate, we have a privilege in Nelson, NZ to be able to meet in person.

On Sunday, June 20, Nelson Yoga teachers collaborate to share a series of classes and mini-workshops throughout the day with the community at large. The sessions are open to everyone and offer a great way to get a taste of what yoga, meditation and breathing practices can offer (see schedule).

There’s even a class for the whole family to join in, really embracing this year’s theme! Attendance at all sessions is free, with a koha for World Visions India Appeal.
