Montezuma, Costa Rica, June 20, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Ylang Ylang Beach Resort will join millions around the globe in celebrating the International Day of Yoga on Tuesday. The United Nations declared June 21 each year as the International Day of Yoga, with the aim of raising awareness of the many benefits of practicing yoga. This is the second year the special day has been officially observed by the nation of Costa Rica.
Yoga is a physical, mental and spiritual practice that originated in India and is now popular worldwide. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon shared his thoughts on the universal appeal of yoga:
"Yoga offers a simple, accessible and inclusive means to promote physical and spiritual health and well-being. It promotes respect for one’s fellow human beings and for the planet we share.”
Ylang Ylang Beach Resort is one of numerous locations throughout Costa Rica that will celebrate the day. The family-owned Costa Rica beach resort is located on the southern tip of the Nicola Peninsula on the Pacific Coast. The resort offers daily yoga classes for all levels in their beachfront yoga studio. Their walk-in classes are open to both resort guests and non-guests. The resort also offers private classes. The Ylang Ylang Beach Resort has a yoga staff of four certified instructors who lead classes.
Owner Moraya Iacono and his wife, yoga instructor Syska Iacono, are proud to be participating in the International Day of Yoga for the first time. "We regularly host international yoga retreats here. We welcome this unique opportunity to unite our minds and bodies with people in Costa Rica and around the world on this special day."
The resort offers yoga classes in a variety of styles including Vinyasa, Hatha, Kundalini and Yoga Nidra. Ylang Ylang yoga instructor Dianne Siegfried creates a relaxed and non-competitive environment in her classes. She said, "The sounds of the sea and the incredible view make it easy to glide into our daily yoga practice. I invite you to join us and explore the creative expression of your body through yoga."
In addition to yoga, Ylang Ylang Beach Resort offers a restaurant, spa, tours and activities including snorkeling, scuba diving, horseback riding, fishing, boating and hiking.
