World Yoga Day in Clane

Breathing Place Yoga, Clane, Participates in World Yoga Day.

Breathing place Yoga On Sunday the 3rd of February 2008 from 11AM - 1PM, Breathing
Place Yoga in Clane will join yoga teachers and schools from around the
world in donating time and space to a two hour yoga session which will
lead to a 24 hour yoga marathon devoted to human rights.

The classes are held from 11AM - 1PM, local time in each time zone, which will lead to a 24 hour yoga marathon around the world. Devoting thoughts and energy globally to the human rights issue will generate a powerful impact.

Breathing Place Yoga in Clane is one of 10 yoga studios in Ireland supporting the event with a two hour class at 11am and all are welcome donating whatever tuition that can be afforded. All donations will go directly to Amnesty International.

In the run-up to the 2008 Olympic Games in Bejing Amnesty International is conducting a campaign to urge the Chinese authorities to keep their promise to improve the human rights situation in China, especially in the areas of death penalty, fair trial and prevention of torture and ill-treatment, protection of human rights defenders and freedom of expression and information.

All yoga styles are welcome. Bringing all yogis worldwide together to devote their practice to this important cause will be a wonderful, spirited celebration of yoga. The aim of World Yoga Day is that as many nations as possible come together on this project, especially countries where human rights violation is a more dominant issue.

Places are limited so advance registration is recommended. For further information or to register contact Breathing Place Yoga in Clane through: or visit All you need is your yoga mat and openness to experience the power of yoga!
