Goooood evening!!! Oh my god, isn’t the SUN ah-mazing???!!! IT was like I came out of my shell today with that sunshine!! I truly blossomed. ANd I think we get to look forward to the sun and hotter days to come. Whew. That was a close one!!
Are you feeling the full moon?? I was def feeling it lastnight. By the time I got into bed lastnight I was so out of sorts, I had all kinds of aches and pains and I was in a bit of a mood. I think I sucked up all kinds of sensations and feelings from other people yesterday and with the moon being full I think it all got magnified in my body. So…I slept for NINE hours and I woke up feeing a bit better. I was still a bit funny this morning, a bit dizzy and wonky, but I ate, meditated, got some work done, read in the sun and then took a yoga class and taught a yoga class and now I’m right as rain. (oops, maybe that was the wrong thing to say…I’m right at the sun shine in July!). I just downed a MASSIVE kale/red cabbage/carrot salad with hemp and sesame seeds, tossed with flax oil and bragg’s. I didn’t think I was going to eat the whole bowl but apparently I needed some GREENS!! I feel much better now.
OK….so, I wanted to let you know about a few fun events coming up over the next few days.
This weekend is the first annual (?) YOGATHON!! It’s a fundraiser for Victoria’s Downtown Community Center. You can find info on the Cool Aid Society website or check out their Facebook Page. I know our very own Lauren will be teaching a Yin yoga class at 8am in Centennial Square…
On SUNDAY (8th) there is going to be FREE YOGA IN THE PARK from BYSaanich. I was not around last summer when the outdoor classes happened so I’m looking forward to this year…and the weather is supposed to be FANTASTIC so it’s going to be that much better!! Check out BYSaanich website for more info on that. It’s at 11 am and I think this week it’s Abbey teaching. Don’t forget your sunscreen!!
ALSO on SUNDAY and ALSO in the park Niecia is organizing a SYNERGY “class”…frolic?…playtime?…get together??? You get the idea. We had such a fun time a couple weeks ago at the Synergy class at the studio let’s do it again! Bring a partner if you have one or don’t, no worries. I won’t have a partner either, so we can work together! 3pm, across from the petting zoo at Beacon Hill. Here’s the link to the FB page for more info! Synergy is a combination of partner stretching, thai massage and “flying” (stretching eachother in the air on our feet…!!!). You get all the stretching you need without having to do the work for it…sounds good right??
Aaaaaand, lastly…On Monday July 9th, a new teacher, Carole Gosse, is teaching a FREE Bikram class at BYSidney. Carole wants to teach some classes to gain experience and there are so many teachers here in Victoria already, so she’s creating space for herself and teaching a FREE class!! So, go on up to BYSidney, it’s a beautiful studio…nice chance to have a new yoga experience! If you plan on going, just call the studio and let them know so they know how many people to expect 😉 Info can be found by contacting the BYSidney studio…
