Date:1/22/2009

Over 300 free or nearly free events offered this Saturday, January 24

CLINTON, Md., Jan. 22 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Yoga Day USA 2009, a history-making celebration where yogis, novices, couch potatoes and triathletes, young, old and everyone in between join together to stretch mind, body and spirit through the practice of yoga is this Saturday, January 24, 2009. In the spirit of karma yoga, or service to others, all Yoga Day USA classes and workshops are free -- or nearly free. Many of these events are fundraisers for community charities.

Created by Yoga Alliance, the world's largest professional organization representing over 20,000 yoga teachers and yoga schools, this powerful annual event is held in yoga studios, parks, beaches and private homes throughout the U.S. Designed to increase the public's awareness of yoga's benefits and help make yoga more accessible to everyone of all fitness levels, ages, and ethnicities, over 300 events from Connecticut to California are being hosted by Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Teachers (RYT) and Registered Yoga Schools (RYS) across the country. To find a workshop in your area, go to www.yogadayusa.org/find.php.

"Yoga Day USA is an annual event where the Yoga Alliance community comes together to share the health and wellness benefits of yoga and the transformative effects it can have on one's life," says Yoga Alliance President & CEO R. Mark Davis. "The practice is literally for 'every body' - it meets you where you are no matter what your capacity or state of health," he added.

The benefits of yoga include:

  • Yoga is relatively low cost or, if practiced at home, even free but its benefits are invaluable.
  • It can be used as an overall approach to lowering blood pressure, improving digestion, boosting the immune system.
  • Eases symptoms of conditions such as anxiety, depression, fatigue, asthma and insomnia.
  • Studies have demonstrated that practicing yoga, meditation or a combination of both reduced pain in those with conditions including cancer, multiple sclerosis, auto-immune diseases, hypertension, arthritis and back/neck pain, among other chronic conditions.

Yoga Alliance is the world's largest professional organization representing over 20,000 yoga teachers and yoga schools. Yoga Alliance registered yoga teachers and schools are recognized for meeting internationally recognized standards of training, experience and ongoing professional development. Acknowledged by the designation RYT, E-RYT and RYS, Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Teachers (RYT) and Registered Yoga Schools (RYS) can be found at www.yogaalliance.org.
