The Peace Within Project celebrates the 1st World Yoga Day

On June 21st the 1st World Yoga Day was celebrated as declared by the United Nations General Assembly following India’s idea. The Peace Within Project took part in the international event as fantastic friends and yoga teachers held yoga classes all around the world, raising funds for the upcoming yoga teachers training for women in the Palestinian Territories.

Our yogis without borders practiced asanas in NYC, Tokyo, Montreal, Rome, London, Australia and Switzerland with a common intention: PEACE!

Thank you to all the wonderful teachers who gave their time and energy! Here are a few pictures:

Help us make the training happen and donate!

1st World Yoga Day

In just two-months time we will start the yoga teachers training for women in Palestinian Territories.

As the training will be offered free of charge to ensure that women from lower incomes can participate, we are now raising funds to make the training happen.

Check out the online donation campaign, get involved and share around you (via emails, Facebook, Twitter, etc.). Getting the word out is what will make this project happen. We can only do it with your help! Thank you!

To kick start the crowdfunding campaign we will hold yoga classes all around the world on the 1st International Yoga Day on June 21!

Thanks to amazing friends and yoga teachers, dozens of yogis in NYC, London, Tokyo, Montreal, Rome, Lisbon, India, Australia, Switzerland and France will practice with a common intention: PEACE!

All proceeds will go to fund the yoga teachers training for women in Palestinian Territories.

We will post pictures of the event. Stay tuned!
