I had many moments of pure yoga bliss this weekend but this is the moment I want to share...
It was outside just nearing sunset, with a full view of the mountains surrounding us, hundreds of yoga mats filled the space. Seane Corn led us in a tear-filled, awe-inspiring class as Michael Franti played equally inspiring music. In between yoga and dancing I stopped to take it all in. The energy of this class was so strong I can’t find the words. We danced together, sang together, saluted and prayed for people we know and some we have never met. After it was over we all sat still, palms at the heart and released the sound of OM together. The sound must have carried itself miles. I came away from this class with so much inspiration but the thing that I was reminded of most is how we are a part of something so much bigger and by coming together we can do so much more.
This class was led by two people. It took only two people to start the butterfly effect that is still carrying on as I am writing about it a week later. Two people came together to start and in the blink of an eye there were hundreds and with the gathering of people there was something so powerful, so motivating and an amazing feeling of oneness. The vibration was huge, the sound carried and the feeling of one was spread.
We are stronger than we think. We can make big changes and move this world into a place of peace and freedom for everyone.
We all have dreams, we have hopes and we are all capable of making them come true. No one is too small to begin. Start, go for it, believe and then look up and see...you may be surprised to see how many people have joined you.
