Some volunteer design work I did for YOCOMO (Yoga Community Montreal). Looking forward to helping out at the Montreal Yoga Festival June 6 – 9, 2014!!
Yesterday I experienced something so magical. I volunteered at the Lolë White Yoga event in Montreal. I participated in the yoga session last year and thought that this year, it would be fun to help out and learn more about my community. It was a lot of work but it was all worth it. I met so many great people that shared the same passion as me! From all the other volunteers, yoga teachers to the participants, there was just such a great energy! As a volunteer, some of us were able to join in on the 90 minute yoga session. Since I had participated last year, I just wanted to sit back and watch as everyone entered their state of bliss. Let me tell you, it was one of the most incredible things I have ever experienced. I had seen pictures of thousands of people practicing yoga together, and I have been in groups of thousands of people practicing together, but it is such a different experience when watching from the side lines. It was beautiful. This event was for everyone. Whether it was your first time doing yoga or whether you’ve been doing it for years, they were all doing it together. That is what made it so beautiful and that is what I love most about the practice. It reminded me of this quote, “Yoga is like walking down a city street. We’re all going different places, but we’re doing it together.” Seeing all of those people together made me realize even more how much I want to teach and pass my knowledge onto others. I really can’t wait to get my training and who knows maybe one day I’ll be helping out at the Lolë White Yoga session as a teacher!
