June 21st marks Summer solstice, the longest day of light of the whole year, it is a celebration of our own inner light and the ways we are all connected. The summer months are when we honour our own power to bring things to fulfillment, we allow ourselves to expand and welcome brightness into our lives. We take our seeds and nourish them through the spring, as the summer approaches we allow the growth of those seeds to flourish and be seen in the world!
Summer also teaches us patience. Our gardens need time and attention for the fruit to ripen, just like our own journey. We can’t rush our process, if we learn to relax and enjoy the light energy of the summer months things reach their fullness with little effort or ego’s striving on our part. It is a time of joy
This year we have several opportunities to celebrate summer solstice with YOU. On Friday, June 21st, we kick off summer solstice with 108 sun salutations! We look forward to sharing this practice with you at Gemmill Park! Join us and the birds, at 5:30 am, for some gentle warm – ups and then in your own time we’ll move through 108 sun salutations (or as many as your body wisdom guides you to cycle through). Come for the whole practice, or just come and do a few rounds with us and head off as you need. We’ll be doing this practice at the end of the gravel road into the park ( the entrance by the skatepark and the soccer pitch, we’ll be beside the canteen.) The class is free, but the practice is priceless! We practice surya namaskar, or sun salutations, to welcome in positive energy and new beginnings. We move and breathe to release old patterns of stress and tension so we can feel our best and be open to opportunities. We hope you can join us! If the rain if falling, we’ll meet at the studio instead – we’ll post it on our blog the night before.
Margie Hill from our studio is also performing that evening, at the Mill of Kintail, with her musical collective Harmonic Fusion. We can connect you with Margie directly, just send us a message if you’d like more information.
Then on Saturday, June 22nd we have a special 9:00 am Kundalini Class, which will be an extended class from 9:00 – 10:30, we’ll be doing a special Kriya followed by a powerful meditation to align us with our purpose and open us to our potential! Noah and I will be making some extra special lemonade for after class that morning!
Sunday morning from 4:45 – 7:00 am we’ll be joining in the early hours for our Sadhana Practice, join us for meditation, yoga and chanting.
July 13th we have a powerful workshop on creating vision boards and manifestation…….truly believing in the seeds you plant and allowing them to grow to fruition.
If you have questions about any of these offerings, please don’t hesitate to reach out, we LOVE to hear from you!!
Here’s to an amazing summer ahead! With lots of love from our studio to each of you!!
