Charity Yoga Event

August 19, 2017 - Leave a Response

Amazing turnout for the Yoga Charity Event at North Beach Pier! As the sun set and the moon rose over the Chesapeake Bay, we flowed honoring the healing benefits of Soma (moonlight energy). Donations were collected for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. The intention was to provide an opportunity to experience the healing effects of Soma energy; bringinng comfort and peace to those who have lost a loved one to suicide. The luminous light of the full moon revealed itself as the session ended and the Yogis were bathed in the sound of a Gong played by Cristal Toribio. PURE MAGIC!

Inspired Yogi…What’s Your Story?

How long have you practiced Yoga? How often per week?  I have practiced yoga off and on for about 20 years. I currently practice about once a week.

What made you decide to practice Yoga?   I thought it looked interesting and could be a good workout. The instructors usually had nice muscle tone, great posture and confidence and I wanted all of those.

What do you like about practicing Yoga at National Harbor?  I like being outdoors and having a large venue so we don’t get in each other’s way. The music is a wonderful addition and the view of the water is soothing.

What is your favorite Yoga pose and why is it your favorite?  I have 2 favorite poses – chair and warrior 1. I love how powerful my legs feel in both poses. Happy baby is another favorite as it makes my hips and lower back feel so good. I usually just want to laugh when I’m in it because I think of a tiny baby grabbing its feet and giggling.

Describe how Yoga has enhanced or changed your life.  Yoga has improved my muscular strength and flexibility. Having degenerative disc disease, I used to have a lot of back pain, but yoga has taken most of that away. It has also given me confidence and peace. If I’m having a stressful day, after my practice the stress is gone and my mind is clear. I’ve learned to be more open and non-judgmental.

How long have you practiced Yoga? How often per week?  On and off for about 5 years. At my peak, twice a week.

What made you decide to practice Yoga?  To relax! I am on the go a lot and was not paying attention to my body. I started feeling really tight and getting a lot of little aches and pains that I did not want to use over the counter meds to “fix”.

What do you like about practicing Yoga at National Harbor?  The view! It’s a beautiful space and great atmosphere. 

What is your favorite Yoga pose and why is it your favorite?  I enjoy the Sun Salutations. I like the flow of the movements and using my breath.

Describe how Yoga has enhanced or changed your life.   As a dancer and dance teacher, as well as working a full time sedentary job, I’m always on the go! Yoga gives me the opportunity to turn my mind off and check in with my body. It has helped with my anxiety and gotten me to focus on being in the moment!

How long have you practiced Yoga? How often per week?  I’ve been practicing yoga on and off for two years.

What made you decide to practice Yoga?  I’ve been a dancer since the age of five and retired from dancing in the NBA two years ago. Yoga is a great alternative to dance and helps me maintain my flexibility. 

What do you like about practicing Yoga at National Harbor?  Practicing yoga at the National Harbor is a great break away from the typical studio class. Being outdoors with a clear view of the water adds to the relaxation aspect of yoga.

What is your favorite Yoga pose and why is it your favorite?  Airplane is my favorite yoga pose. It takes focus, balance and strength to achieve.

Describe how Yoga has enhanced or changed your life. Yoga has helped improve my relaxation. It’s given me techniques to better my breathing and clear my mind. The strength and flexibility I have gained has also helped diminish my day-to-day pain.

How long have you practiced Yoga? How often per week?  I’ve known and attended yoga classes here and there over past decade, but it wasn’t til last year that I became a serious Yogi. I’ve acquired a 200 hour certification via Spiritual Essence Yoga studio and am now practicing at least 4-5 times a week.

What made you decide to practice Yoga?  Physical and mental health sustainment.

What do you like about practicing Yoga at National Harbor?  Feeling the power
of outdoors; being neat water.

What is your favorite Yoga pose and why is it your favorite?  I honestly don’t have a favorite. I am in appreciation of what they all represent in practice. I aspire towards holding crow pose for 5 breaths and to do a full handstand.

Describe how Yoga has enhanced or changed your life.  It has brought an understanding of the journey/pathway to peace and acceptance.
