Celebrate International Day of Yoga at Monument Circle

Yogis and yoga enthusiasts in our area are gearing up for Indy’s largest yoga event to be held on the International Day of Yoga, which coincides with summer solstice. The sixth annual Monumental Yoga will be held from 4 to 8 p.m. on June 21 downtown at Monument Circle, where yoga practitioners of all levels will gather for the area’s largest outdoor yoga class.

This free event, organized by the Athenaeum Foundation, is the ideal environment to introduce those that are new to the practice to a variety of yoga practices and styles taught by local and regional instructors. This year’s miniclass schedule includes meditation and yoga for athletes, as well as kundalini, Bikram and yin yogas.

Monumental Yoga’s vendor village, open from 4 to 8:30 p.m., will feature many local yoga schools, holistic health services and one-of-a-kind vendors offering everything from beauty and healthcare products and food and drinks to jewelry, yoga supplies and apparel.

The family-friendly event will culminate in a donation-based summer solstice class at 7 p.m. Proceeds benefit Indy Yoga Movement, a nonprofit that brings yoga to Indianapolis public schools. Participants should bring their own mats and water bottle.
