About Us

Midsummer Yoga for Palestine is a community driven, pop-up day of events taking place through Ireland to mark UN International Yoga Day on June 21st 2015. The events are inspired by Farashe Yoga Palestine who are bringing the benefits of yoga to communities throughout the West Bank. By introducing yoga to schools, refugee camps, and community groups, a sustainable and holistic source of respite is made available to women, men and children from the ongoing stresses of living under illegal Military Occupation in the Palestinian West Bank.

The organizers of Midsummer Yoga for Palestine are a group of like-minded yoga teachers, practitioners and social-justice conscious people living in Limerick City and County Clare.  To learn more about Yoga in Palestine, listen to the radio documentary,  Freedom On The Mat podcast  produced by event organizer, Muireann de Barra.

The Midsummer Yoga for Palestine event for 2015 has now passed.  Please check back with us for future events like this.  Thank you for your support.
