Local yogis gather to celebrate International Day of Yoga

People met up at TriPoint Center for Yoga locally

SAN ANTONIO – Local yogis gathered Saturday to celebrate the International Day of Yoga.

More than 150 countries were celebrating Saturday.

Locally, people met up at the TriPoint Center for Yoga, but the San Antonio event is doing something a little bit different. It is also using Saturday to raise money to provide free yoga to underserved communities.

"I think more and more research is showing that mindfulness and breath exercises and physical movement are some things that can benefit anyone at any age at any stage of their life," director Kristen Baggett said.

The director of yoga day said yoga is for people of all ages and she sees children as young as 5 to people into their 90s in her classes.
