Yoga Awareness Month – how will you celebrate?

Did you know September is National Yoga Awareness Month?

My first thought was no, how embarrassing especially since I have been practicing yoga since the late 80?s and teaching yoga since 2006.

Don’t worry if you are like me; yoga awareness month only began 5 years ago. In 2008, the US Department of Health and Human Services designated September as National Yoga Month, one of a select number of national health observances. Since then, the initiative has taken root as a global awareness campaign, educating, inspiring and motivating people to achieve a healthy lifestyle. (source: Wikipedia)

One of my most recent memorial yoga moments happened just two days ago, Tuesday, September 10, 2013. I was teaching an evening yoga class outside on my yoga deck. Is was a beautiful evening about 27 degrees Celsius with a calming breeze and sky full of stars. We began our class sipping on home made blueberry iced tea and chatting. As we were entering our initial relaxation one of my clients said “there is a shooting star”. As we progressed through a series of poses, the groups energy shift to a more relaxed and peaceful state. As the group was in relaxing even deeper into final relaxation I saw two more shooting stars. It was a magical peaceful evening.

Looking forward to hearing your yoga stories.
