Happy International Yoga Day 2019

I have to writeIYD_CC today!  June 21st is International Day of Yoga!  It was declared as such by the United Nations in 2015. The theme of 2019 is Climate Action, so what does the 2019 logo depict?

The Yogis’ hands, joining above her/his head signify “union”.  Yoga is the union of body, mind, and spirit, but yoga also brings people together.  All over the world on June 21st, people unite in the powerful, yet peaceful practice of yoga.  The orange halo encircling the head and arms, represents the element of fire. The globe around the head of the Yogi represents our “oneness”, with the global civilization, as we practice together.  Moving down the body of the seated Yogi, the green leaves symbolize “nature”, and the brown leaves, the “earth”.  The blue body of the Yogi is representative of the element of “water” throughout our body.

Enjoy this day of power, peace, and action – practice your yoga today!

MESH Yoga

I am a wife, a mother of 3 wonderful, amazing adults, a grandmother, an Early Childhood Educator, and a certified yoga instructor (YTT 200 hrs). I teach Vinyassa style Hatha deep stretch, detox, and power flow classes at Birth Yoga Studio in Streetsville Ontario, and with Results Fitness Lifestyle In Mississauga. I completed my YTT 200 in December 2018. I am also a certified Y12SR, Yoga for 12 Step Recovery, group leader (August 2018), and a certified instructor of yoga for seniors, Relax into Yoga (March 2019), and Teaching Yoga to Seniors (October 2019). I facilitate Thai Yoga Stretch, and teach yoga to private clientelle. Practicing yoga is a passion, and supporting others to learn about this life changing practice is my goal. I practice meditation and mindfulness. I believe there is so much we can learn from being in tune with our body, our mind and our spirit, but that is a difficult path to find, and then, to actually follow. When we do, we facilitate the union of those 3 entities. Then we can begin to discover who we really are, and come to accept our precious self.
