International Yoga Day 2017 brings thousands of enthusiasts E-mail

The 3rd International Yoga Day took place in Rabin Square in the centre of Tel Aviv on the longest day of the year, 21 June.

The programme in Tel Aviv drew thousands of participants, who joined in several parallel yoga sessions including Iyangar, Ashtanga, Tri-Yoga and Vinyasa yoga. In addition, there was a session of Acro-Yoga and a yoga session for children.

On show was the largest art piece ever created from 1,500 yoga mats. The artwork visualises the future of Israel 30 years from now, with an emphasis on the environment, culture and co-existence.

Lead by Dreame founder Sharonna Karni Cohen, who collected hundreds of dreams from hundreds of people in Tel Aviv. She thereafter recruited artist Amit Trainin and two junior artists, who transformed these dreams into one artwork depicting an imagined future. This was scanned and sliced into 1,500 pieces and printed onto yoga mats.

An official opening ceremony was attended by the Ambassador of India in Israel together with a performance of Indian dance and songs.
