Biggest Yoga & Meditation on Bondi Beach in Winter for United Nations World Yoga Day Challenge 

What a turn out for the first ever United Nations World Yoga Day Challenge presented by on Sunday 21 June 2015! The cold weather could not keep the yoga lovers away!

Nearly 600 Sydney-siders rolled out their mats on Australia’s iconic Bondi Beach yesterday morning to make history in the first ever United Nations World Yoga Day Challenge whilst enriching the lives of people in need. The biggest yoga and meditation gathering held in Bondi, and in winter no less, was presented by local charity A Sound Life. .

“We were overwhelmed by the amount of support we received, not only the hundreds that turned out at sunrise to experience the inaugural United Nations World Yoga Day Challenge, but also all the huge number of partners and volunteers that helped to make the event the success that it was”, said A Sound Life co-founders and Bondi locals, Edo and Jo Kahn. “It was an amazing sight to wit-ness so many participating in a sunrise yoga practice on Sydney’s beautiful Bondi Beach led by some of Australia’s premier yoga and meditation teachers.”

The event raised over $20,000 thanks to Vittoria Coffee, who donated $20 for every pair of feet on a mat; Air India and Taj Hotels who generously donated a free trip to India, Uber who are donating $10 for every person who takes a first free ride (up to $25) with promo code ‘ASLYOGA’ (valid until 31 July), and Sejuiced Coffee in Bondi who donated $1 from every coffee purchased on World Yoga Day.

In his speech to the United Nations in September last year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged the world community to celebrate a World Yoga Day. Modi said, "Let us work towards adopting an Inter-national Yoga Day. Yoga is an invaluable gift of our ancient tradition. It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and the nature."

Sydney’s Bondi was the first of 174 countries to commence the inaugural United Nations World Yoga Day ‘worldwide wave’ of sun salutes on 21 June 2015, a global movement sanctioned by the United Nations.
