People enjoy International Yoga Day at home, in parks
Morning walkers and fitness enthusiasts in the city start their day on Sunday with ‘pranayama’ and ‘asanas’ on International Yoga Day. They also maintain social isolation practices due to the Covid-19 epidemic. There were no organized public gatherings or events in parks, stadiums, or halls this year. This year’s theme is ‘Yoga for Health – Yoga at Home’. However, some residents made asanas during morning walks in city parks, zoos and Gandhi Maidan.
Yoga in the Park (2021)
Invite a Natural Mother to your Yoga activity at the Park. Embrace the elements of the earth on the ground, flow, breathe, and gain elasticity. Join us every day as we gather under a tree bed and enjoy the fresh air in outdoor yoga.
Yoga in the Park started in 2017 as a way to encourage OKC residents to explore neighboring parks. Yoga Park is FREE to attend and open to people of all ages and abilities. Classes held April – October 1st and 3rd Wednesday from 6-7 pm.
This past week, we had the pleasure of leading yoga in the park with a large group of children from the community. It was truly a milestone! The kids had a great time experimenting with different situations and stretching. Yoga is beneficial for children and adults. Yoga and mindfulness improve both physical and mental health in school-age children, according to research.
Physically, yoga boosts balance, strength, endurance, and aerobic strength. Psychologically, it can improve concentration, memory, self-esteem, academic performance, and reduce stress in children. It also provides playful and collaborative work for parents and children to do together.
