Experience the power of yoga at free sessions that celebrate summer solstice across Greater Houston on Wednesday, June 21 and Saturday, June 24, 2023.

Coinciding with summer solstice, the longest day of the year, the International Day of Yoga invites people from around the world to come together in their communities for yoga sessions that fuse movement and mindfulness.

This year, neighborhoods across Greater Houston will host their own free sessions that are open to the public. Events are mostly held on summer solstice, Wednesday, June 21, in the early morning and evening hours so that you can avoid the hottest times of the day.

But, if you can’t make the midweek sessions, then one event on Saturday in Sugar Land will offer a great way to start your morning.
