The first Global Yoga Congress, organized by YogaOne by DiR, will be held in Barcelona from May 18th to May 22nd. The Congress, that will take place between the YogaOne center and the Palau de Congressos center in Catalonia, will have 100 workshops given by more than 50 international and local instructors.

This is the first Global Congress held by YogaOne in Barcelona, following the Yoga Day success last year in which 1.300 people participated and after the large influx of students – 600 people – attended the nearly 40 courses and seminars that were given during 2016 at the YogaOne Tuset and the YogaOne Mandri centers. For Jordi Canela, the person in charge of YogaOne, this event “is the next step to grow and allow the yoga practice to be developed in Barcelona”.

The event has been created with a pedagogical vocation to favor the introduction to yoga, as well as to allow the participants to deepen their practice with the development of theoretical contents. It also aims to be a place where all the yogis in the world can meet and share their passion.
