International Day of Yoga

Celebrate the International Day of Yoga with Special Olympics on 21 June! Yoga is important to Special Olympics athletes around the world. It is a great way to relax before an important competition or focus before a practice. Special Olympics Middle East/North Africa (MENA) has been hosting yoga classes virtually to continue to inspire Special Olympics athletes to do yoga at home. After an initial five class yoga series in April and May, Special Olympics MENA created a virtual yoga challenge for people to participate in from home and will be hosting another yoga session on 21 June. Namaste!
