Join in celebrating the sun, the summer solstice, yoga and community with the Hindu Cultural Center of CT (HCC) in Stratford. It will hold its 4th Annual International Yoga Day weekend events on June 23 and 24.
108 Sun Salutations, led by HCC’s yoga instructors, takes place from 9 to 11am on Saturday, and is followed by a healthy, vegetarian luncheon. All levels are welcome. Participants do not have to complete all 108 sun salutations. Modifications will be demonstrated; there will be time for short meditation and contemplation.
On June 24 from 9am to 3pm, HCC will celebrate 4th Annual International Yoga Day. Participants may sample yoga, pranayama and meditation classes; chant Sanskrit mantras; move energy through qigong; and learn about yoga’s sister science, Ayurveda.
A healthy vegetarian luncheon will be served.
Bring a yoga mat and bottle of water to any of these events. A donation of $10 per day is requested and accepted on behalf of HCC.
