How to Celebrate International Yoga Day (and the Summer Solstice) This Thursday

Goats and tacos will be provided.

When it comes to important summer dates, June 21 is a two-for-one deal. International Yoga Day and the Summer Solstice (aka the first official day of summer) both coincide this Thursday, prompting a full day of sun saluting celebrations. And because the Summer Solstice marks the longest day of the year, we’ll have extra daylight to celebrate properly. So don’t nama-stay inside all day. Get out and use those extra hours of sun to usher in a new season.


CityLine Celebration, 6-7:30pm

Bring your crew to CityLine Plaza and make this day a family affair. Free for everyone, the party will start with live music at 6pm and continue with separate adult and children’s yoga classes at 6:30pm.


Yoga + Tacos benefiting the Alzheimer’s Association, 6:30-7:30pm

Merge your passions for exercising and eating all for a worthy cause.  With yoga on the lawn and refreshments to follow, Americado is hosting a Yoga and Taco event with no set fee, but you will have the opportunity to donate to the Alzheimer’s Association.


Vital Fitness Studio presents Glow with the Flow Rooftop, 8-9pm

Make your way to the top of the Ross and Field parking garage for yoga with a view. For $40, glow sticks, body paint and temporary tattoos will be provided for your Vital flow. Stick around post-savasana to sip on complementary cocktails.


Goat Yoga at The Stoneleigh, 8-9pm

This yoga class might just be the greatest of all time. Baby goats dressed in onsies will entertain you during your practice, but don’t be startled if they jump and climb on you as you enter that child’s pose (it’s what they do). Held at The Stoneleigh Hotel, tickets are $40.
