This Thursday, Tel Aviv will mark International Day of Yoga, an annual event established by the UNGA in 2015. Although the actual day is Friday, June 21st, the city municipality, and yoga studios across Tel Aviv, want to provide you all the holistic meditation needs while still leaving time for Shabbat. We have listed some events where you can get in your downward-facing-dog position and celebrate this ancient cultural routine.
