Research V
World Yoga Day



This will be our 3rd World Yoga Day at Jacobs University for Bremen. This is the most auspicious place to have the event considering the wholistic, harmonizing effect of yoga on the individual, the environment and the international society. The UN considers this to be an effective method for alleviating  growing individual stress and global tension.

Dr. Monika Göckel, a neurobiologist and yoga expert will lead into the Yoga session.

Friends and Family are very welcome to attend this World Community event.
Please bring a Yoga mat etc.
We will start in Research V and then move to the big sports hall which is 15x26 m which is big enough for a large group practice. We have several local yoga teachers who will lead the easy yoga exercises recommended by the UN in the sports hall.
