Yoga in The Garden aka Life Coaching Tip: Do Yoga Friday Afternoons to Release The Tensions of the Week!
My local yoga studio, Shanti Yoga offered a wonderful yoga class last evening as a fundraiser for the Earthwise Garden and Organic Farm in Tsawwassen. I decided to do it as part of my giving back to the community and as part of my self -care to keep my work life in balance.
We all brought our own mats and were kind of spontaneously spaced around Chantal, our instructor.
Earthwise is a very interesting and special place. The following is taken from the Earthwise Website (www.earthwise.ca)
“Earthwise Society is a catalyst for the creation of a sustainable community through empowering individuals to take responsibility for social, economic and environmental well-being.”
The Earthwise Garden is a community program that teaches about sustainability, horticulture, and community development through gardening, farming and recycling. It is based in Boundary Bay, near Centennial Beach, in the community of Tsawwassen.
Not often does one have the opportunity to do yoga and meditation and just melt into the grass and release all of the week’s worries, energy and cares into the ground, surrounded by like minded people, bunnies, birds and beautiful flowers. It was truly magical!
Thanks Shanti Yoga, Chantal and Earthwise!
Shanti Yoga is also doing two groovy yoga retreats: in November on Galiano Island and in April in Bali! You can get more info by checking out their website at www.shantiyogabc.com
