Yoga is an ancient practice that promotes harmony between the body and mind.

By bringing together people of various ages and backgrounds, a sense of unity and cohesion is created, essential for social well-being.

Puerto Vallarta is a popular destination for both national and international tourists, and activities like this can attract more visitors interested in wellness and sustainable tourism. The Arcos del Malecón, being a key tourist attraction, provide a visible platform to showcase the city's commitment to promoting healthy and sustainable practices.

The celebration of International Yoga Day at the Arcos del Malecón also has educational value.
