“World Yoga Day was started several years ago by Samira Radsi, a yoga teacher living in Berlin, Germany. Samira herself says that the idea for creating World Yoga Day to harness the power of yogis the world over to help victims of human rights violations just came to her spontaneously when she was drinking her cappuccino one Saturday morning. Soon, she shared her dream of helping people via yoga with her friend and fellow yoga teacher, Bjoern Wyrich and they began to take action to make World Yoga day a reality. One of the first steps was to get in touch with yoga schools the world over to find out how many of them would be interested in participating, and several hundred declared their support. In general, the idea behind World Yoga Day is very simple: yoga teachers, yoga schools and yogis around the world donate a bit of their time, space and money to human rights causes.”
