Yesterday I was invited to be a VIP attendee at the Lole White yoga practice. About 2000 people from Toronto gathered together to practice yoga and to promote community and peace and I was honored to be invited to be one of them. Yesterday, in the summer rain we all wore white, and gathered at Garrison grounds to practice under the wonderful direction of Grace Dubery.
Leading the session was Toronto yoga teacher and Lolë ambassador, Grace Dubery. Grace lead an amazing session of yoga, and my body moved ie ways it never had before, and I was very grateful for the 50 yoga teachers in the crowd, one was very kind and showed me some great ways to modify the poses just for me and were I am at health wise.
What surprised me was how when moving in unison it brought up so many emotions for me. At some points I was moved to have tears in my eyes.
I had the chance to speak with Grace after the session and asked her about beginning a yoga practice. Her suggestions was to begin with a hatha class, and to find a yoga instructor that I connect with.
As an extension of Lolë community involvement, this session supported the Harbourfront Community Centre (HCC). Donations were accepted at the event with all proceeds assisting the HCC to offer free yoga, Pilates and Zumba classes.
