Yoga enthusiasts celebrate International Yoga Day E-mail

As part of a global movement, the 4th International Day of Yoga took place in Tel Aviv on 21 June. Israel’s yoga community and all yoga enthusiasts were invited to participate in the yoga festival at Tel Aviv port.

On the longest day of the year, yogis from all over the world come together in city centres and celebrate yoga at the same time. The programme typically attracts thousands of participants, who join in several parallel yoga sessions.

This year’s free programme in Tel Aviv started at 6.15pm with classical Indian music, meditation classes and yoga practices led by two renowned teachers, Viyay Amar from India and Carrie Owerko from the US. At 8pm there was an official ceremony attended by the Ambassador of India in Israel, together with a performance of Indian dance and songs. The evening’s activities finished at around midnight.

White Night shines in Tel Aviv E-mail

Initiated in 2005 to celebrate the recognition of Tel Aviv’s White City (the city’s magnificent collection of Bauhaus buildings) as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, the annual White Night event in TelAviv is a gathering at which the city comes alive.

This year’s event took place on 28 June. Concerts, shows and other cultural activities promote the city’s architecture. Outdoor performances run until late at night, and art centres and clubs stay open very late and are mostly free to enter.

Many of the Bauhaus buildings on Rothschild and Bialik Streets are lit up throughout the night, with special spotlights highlighting their unique architectural elements.
