Hi MoY Yogis,
I know many of you are ready to return to in-person yoga practice, holding that space for yourself, space for others, space for the community….. We are too. However in light of the recent increases of covid 19 cases and re-introduction of restrictions in the Lisbon Metropolitan Region, it gives me reason to press pause on the plans to re-open the studio space for now. Luckily our years of practice teach us patience, it’s time to lean into that and receive the benefits of the work already done.
However as we wait patiently to roll out the purple mats under the much adored scrabble wall, why shan’t we take a look into removing some of these ‘other’ walls, those that tend to creep into our life preventing us from doing something different, something new, something out there.
Over the coming summer months we will be organising outdoor gatherings of yoga, giving you a chance to do something you may have never done before.
The first of this is happening as early as this coming weekend, July 11th&12th, with PURE NATURE YOGA WEEKEND. If you like camping, if you like yoga, if you want to be close to nature but not alone then this is for you. This is 100% outdoors, from where we practice yoga, to where we serve food, the only time you retreat inside is in the comfort of your own tent. Bettina and I (Zoe) have put together an incredible 2 day program that includes: Kundalini Yoga, Yin, Vinyasa Flow, Yoga Nidra, a meditation walk to a secret waterfall, cacao ceremony and a delicious supply of organic meals. The full schedule, price and how to sign up is listed on our event page here.
If you miss out on this one, sign up quick for the next one 8th&9th August!
Keep an eye out on the Ministry of Yoga Facebook page or subscribe to this blog to receive emails about the up and coming outdoor gatherings which will include more of our wonderful MoY Teachers.
In addition to our summer outdoors, I am continuing to offer MoY Online classes, with the study of Yoga Sutras Book 2 beginning Monday July 13th. The option to purchase the 21 Day Challenge and Yoga Sutras Book 1 is still available. Contact me to find out more!
Lets continue to do the things that we know bring happiness and joy to our beings.
Until we meet again,
Zoe and the MoY Team
