Yoga has become a universal language of spiritual exercise in the United States, crossing the many lines of religions and cultures. 

In the spirit of President Obama’s “Active Lifestyle Challenge”, the Dharmic community, with help from Hindu American Seva Charities will combine faith and health through a Yogathon focused on youth, accompanied by adults, in a nationally coordinated open house event on Sunday, Aug. 29th. The open house will include an introduction of the temples to the community; explanation of yoga and its connection with philosophy and tradition, with a workshop on yog-asanas for youth and adults.
