A major YOGA festival is to take place in Cashel on June 25th.

The Federation of Indian Communities in Ireland in conjunction with Tipperary County Council is to celebrate the “International Day of Yoga (IDY)  at Cashel Rugby Club grounds in Cashel Co. Tipperary.

The event is to run from 10am to 1pm and is  a free outdoor event.

This will be including a session of yoga, Pranayama and meditation followed by Irish Dancing with Lucy Burgess and Scoil Ui Ruairc and Indian cultural performance.

This year 2022, the United Nations has set a theme ‘Yoga for humanity’ because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated psychological suffering and mental health problems, including depression and anxiety, as pandemic-related restrictions were introduced in various forms in many countries.

This has highlighted the urgent need to address the mental health dimension of the pandemic, in addition to the physical health aspects.

The YOGA community hopes that people will attend to learn more about the benefits offered by the practice of yoga.
