Inhale…hold…exhale…this Friday the 21st of June is International Yoga Day, coinciding with the longest day of the year, the Summer Solstice. In celebration, we’ve combined the best yoga events and activities on this Friday.

Grianstad an tSamhraidh – Summer Solstice Sunrise Yoga

Start International Yoga Day off right with a sunrise yoga experience in Phoenix Park at 4.30am. Yoga Flow will be guided by Bláthnaid Ní Smaolaigh of IMBAS Yoga – as Gaeilge.

The poses in Yoga are all based on stories in the Indian pantheon, and telling stories is in our nature on this island. To celebrate the shortest day of the year, you will rise with the sun, and embody the powerful postures.

The exact location in the park is secret, but will be revealed upon booking. Visit for more information.
