Why is Yoga at Solstice so Special?

admin August 18, 2016 0 comments 0
This is summer’s height, midsummer, the longest day and the shortest night of the earth’s solar year. Here we celebrate the completion of the cycle that began at the winter solstice. In the midst of the longest day of the year, we simultaneously begin our return to the dark half of the year.

Solstice means “standing of the sun” and we can connect to this great turning point in the earth’s yearly cycle by taking a moment to stop, be still and look back at our own unique journey since the winter solstice.

From now to the winter solstice everything in earth will be withdrawing within. We can use this time to focus on what we wish to nurture and develop in ourselves during the coming months.

The summer solstice is a doorway into the second half of the year, energizing the paths that lead within. Stand on the threshold and ask yourself what you wish to encourage in your life?

Summer solstice is a time for celebrating the fertility of the earth.  Traditionally this is a time for lighting bonfires and staying up all night to see the sun rise.

You can practise Yoga with Sandstone on the Solstice (Monday 20th June) at any of our scheduled Monday classes at Aldridge or Sutton Coldfield.

Or join us for our two very special Solstice events;

Be sure to book your place online for either event.

Bring that incredible solar energy into your life with Sandstone!
