Teaching the Fun Yoga session at Wanderlust at the Cité de la Mode & du Design (City of Fashion & Design) was an amazing experience. I choose to teach the aquatic theme of Beach Yoga at Wanderlust because the venue is right next to the majestic Seine river in the heart of Paris.
SHINY HAPPY PEOPLE
There were so many loving, artistic people at the Lolë Yoga gathering. With such an electric vibe my intuition told me to turn the Yoga class into a Yoga Party. I just knew that all these cool Parisians would love to reunite with their inner child & participate in a Kids Yoga class. After all who doesn’t like being able to freely play like a child? It was a ‘wanderful’ feeling of joy as I looked out from the teaching stage & saw so many glowing bodies & soulful smiles. These divinely playful ‘Fun Yoga’ classes are so much more creative & spontaneous than traditional adult Yoga classes. They are a pure celebration of the mind, the body & the eternally youthful spirit.
MR BLUE SKY
Paris felt like a very magical place as we unrolled our bodies & stretched up towards a clear blue sky. Practicing Yoga outdoors just feels so awesome. I love feeling the wind on my skin, the sun in my hair & harmonising the breathe to the movement of the wind. I love to practice , Pranayama, Asana & Meditation outside whether it be Beach Yoga, Mountain Yoga, Forest Yoga or even Urban Yoga. Let’s be honest Yoga just feels better the closer you are to nature.
RIDERS OF THE STORM
Unfortunately my Yoga class at Wanderlust was cut short due to the wet weather but finally doing Yoga in the Rain was my favourite part of the class. The Summer rain was a perfect way to cool our hot bodies. It rained, we got wet, yet the crowd in front of me kept on smiling & encouraged me to keep on teaching. The heavens opened up & cleansed our bodies as we rode in the storm.
As Yoga warriors we surfed in the rain, we danced in the air & we dived into the depth of our inner selves. We even bravly confronted our wet Yoga mats & swam with the sharks !!!!
It was truly an aquatic surfing adventure.
HERE COMES THE SUN
As we finished our class, hearts pounding from all the radical uplifting Yoga, the rain stopped & the sun dried our happy bodies. By the time we had chanted our last few ‘OMs’ we were miraculously dry. It was indeed a perfect Beach Yoga class.
My love to all you Happy Coconuts (you will know what I’m referring to if you were there at the Beach Yoga Class @ WANDERLUST with me xx 😉
I feel truly honored to have been in trusted to be the Yoga Teacher for this ever so special Yoga moment.
I would also like to mention how proud I was of Nova, my 6 year old daughter who courageously helped me teach the class in front of so many people. As my official assistant Nova is used to helping me in my (our) Kids & Family Yoga classes. However she was understandably nervous about getting up on the WANDERLUST stage & co teaching in front of such a large crowd.
After the class I asked her how she felt, she simply replied with a beaming smile “great” & continued dancing with the other Yoga Kids on the outdoor terrace.
I LIKE TO THANK YOU FOR….
