Los Angeles, CA, August 14, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Throughout the month of September, people across the country will have access to an entire week of free yoga classes. The offer is part of the National Yoga Month campaign which is designed to educate, inspire and generate awareness of the positive impact of yoga on health.
During National Yoga Month, one of a select few national health observances, millions will come together for free events and activities. Festivities will take place across the U.S., with hundreds of studios, teachers, individuals and organizers taking part in their own hometowns. The events are all designed to educate people about the mind and body benefits of yoga practice.
“We are all looking for ways to take an active role in managing our health. There are readily available solutions that don’t necessarily require insurance or even a doctor,” said Johannes R. Fisslinger, co-founder of National Yoga Month. “Preventative wellness can be accessed by simply unrolling a yoga mat!”
As part of its mission to provide actionable guidance and tools, National Yoga Month is providing people with an opportunity to try yoga for free. Whether participants are attempting it for the very first time or are experienced yogis looking to deepen your practice, participating is simple.
One Week Free Yoga coupons can be redeemed at www.yogamonth.org/yogamonthcard by first selecting a participating yoga studio and then printing the Yoga Month Card (One Week Free Yoga).
Participants are also encouraged to invite their families, friends, co-workers and employees and inspire them to start their own healthy lifestyle practice.
National Yoga Month is supported by a variety of local and national companies like YogaFit, Lucy, Jade Yoga, Shakti Mat, Be Present, True Bloom, The Hub LA Yoga Studio and media organizations like Organic Spa Magazine, LA Yoga, MyYogaOnline.com and Yogamates.com.
About National Yoga Month
In 2008, the Department of Health and Human Services designated September as National Yoga Month, one of a select number of national health observances. That same year, thousands of yoga and health enthusiasts participated in a 10 City Yoga Health Festival Tour featuring yoga classes, lectures, music, entertainment, exhibits. Since then, the initiative has taken root as a global awareness campaign, educating, inspiring and motivating people to achieve a healthy lifestyle.
The National Yoga Month campaign is administered by the Yoga Health Foundation, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization registered in the State of California. All funds benefit the national awareness campaign and yoga health education for at-risk kids in schools. http://www.yogamonth.org
