Sign up for live yoga with me this Saturday, June 19th @ 10AM (est)!
Is anyone else really, really looking forward to this weekend? I do my best to appreciate each and every day, but sometimes it’s hard during a busy work week. I grow impatient and urge a few days to fly by. And it feels especially hard this week with so many wonderful celebrations to look forward to during the weekend!
Saturday June 19th is Juneteenth – the celebration of the official end of slavery, two and half years after Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Declaration. Juneteenth is now officially a national holiday – an overdue recognition that will help refresh our focus on past ills and current injustices, so that we may eradicate these systemic issues forever. Most importantly, the day invites us to celebrate the strength and vibrancy of the Black communities in our nation. 🖤 Happy Juneteenth!
Sunday June 20th is Father’s Day – don’t forget to pick out a card or a gift, make a phone call or spend quality time with with your Dad or the dad-like figure in your life! 👨👧 If anything, the holiday is an opportunity to show appreciation for the close and supportive forces in your life, whoever they may be. My dad is incredibly generous and hilarious, and I am looking forward to the opportunity to make sure he knows! Happy Father’s Day!
☀️ Sunday June 20th is also the Summer Solstice – the longest day of the year (in terms of daylight hours) which heralds the official start of the summer season. (The Sun is also representative of the divine masculine/father in astrology. Lots of “Dad” energy this weekend!) The energy of this hot summer solstice gives you lots of momentum – lights a literal fire under your ass 🔥🔥 – to achieve a goal, finish a project or follow through on something you’ve been daydreaming about. Pay attention to the quiet voice that tells you to make a dream a priority – the time to listen is now!
And of course, for all of June we celebrate Pride – an opportunity to support, recognize and advocate for LGBTQ+ members of our community. Happy Pride! 🌈
👉 And I am happy to share that I am adding yet ANOTHER reason to celebrate!
I will be teaching a Summer Celebration Yoga class on Saturday, June 19th at 10AM (est.)
I will be donating a part of the event proceeds to the National Black Justice Coalition (NBJC) in observance of Juneteenth and Pride. Our donation will support Black LGBTQ civil rights and empower marginalized communities!!
Take this opportunity to harness the power of the sun and the celebratory energy of liberation and freedom. Treat Dad to some yoga! Cherish your family, your community and yourself. Spending time doing the introspective work of yoga affords you the clarity and peace to step out as your best self – for you and for those around you.
Yoga will make you SHINE like the SUN! Join us ☀️
