Yoga plays a major role in this Pandemic.
Make no doubt about that. Studios all over the world, have shut, closed permanently and
have set up shop on the Net. Instagram, Youtube, Facebook, Zoom...are just some of the
places where you can spend hours scrolling and learning discovering everything YOGA...
Hundreds of teachers are trying to make a living on line. The face of Yoga has changed
within a year. How will the remaining studios stay open? How will they get by with social
distancing? How will this economy recover? Will it?
One thing we know is that the Pandemic is creating major mental health side effects.
People’s mental health is deteriorating. We are social creatures, even if we are introverts.
We have the capacity to be light, and love. Yet so often the rude, cruel reality eats away
and it overshadows our ability to support, to rejoice, to celebrate, and honor each others
differences. This is where a Yoga practice can be key. Stepping on your mat to clear your
thoughts, and connect to your breath. The Pandemic has created a great pathway for yoga
too! Learning to breathe when in hard times. Breathing to reduce stress and tension, or
simply taking longer inhales and exhales, and then allowing yourself to be guided, to be
playful on your mat...this is a game changer. And Yoga Garden is at your service!
We have a wonderful New Community Challenge!
Being inclusive, means we INCLUDE YOU in our image. We want to have all shapes
and sizes, all abilities and styles. We have invited you to come and be our bodies! The
Community Challenge asks you to commit to a practice of 30 minutes for 30 days!
You will be so grateful to see how real people do yoga!
Today, one year into the Pandemic we are also asking you to support us in any way you
can. We offer multiple packages from challenges, to podcasts, and zoom classes! English
readers, the English Podcast Challenge will be available mid month on video! AND LISTEN
