Things happen in threes, so people say – so on the 11tn of November, we held a special yoga class with triple the purpose!
The centenary of the signing of the Armistice at the 11th hour on the 11th day on the 11th month of 1918 was acknowledged widely throughout Australia. We at Yoga Alive also recognised the occasion by holding a special yoga class (starting at 11.01am) on that day.
I have also been very concerned about the victims of the various natural disasters that recently hit the Indonesian island of Sulawesi, and I wanted to offer support. So people paid a bit extra to attend the class on the 11th of the 11th, and many other people gave donations even though they couldn’t attend on the day.
We raised almost $600 to be sent to help people in Sulawesi.
We didn’t just have a yoga class, however. We also had a party, as I was celebrating moving into my home eleven years ago on the 11th November, 2007.
After this special yoga class finished, the sun was shining as people sat either outside or inside on the floor of the yoga studio eating healthy vegan nibblies, vegan cheesecake and drinking chai.
I am always humbled by people’s generosity when it comes to helping others, and this day was no different. Together we offered a truly yogic gesture.
Thankyou to everyone for making this occasion such a success!
