Salutation Nation 2011: anyone. everyone. do yoga.
Practicing yoga by yourself has its benefits – such as energizing your body and calming your mind – but to share your practice with others, whether it is with friends, family, neighbors or strangers, has one greater benefit: connection.
On Saturday, Sept. 10 from 9a.m. to 10a.m. (in your local time zone), hundreds of thousands of mats will be rolled out onto grass, sand and pavement across the North American continent (and London) to elevate the intense connection that yoga facilitates. Since the birth of the first Salutation Nation last summer, lululemon athletica will once again host its unisonous outdoor yoga event to share the gift of yoga and to provide a space for community members to spiritually connect through mind, body and breath.
Salutation Nation will be led by local yoga ambassadors – Orange County will have the privilege of being led by the talented Paul Da Silva from YogaWorks – and is complimentary and open to all levels and ages.
Join the whole OC community to move, breathe, connect and relax into your downdog in front of Newport Beach’s lululemon athletica store on the Fashion Island lawn. So grab your mat, bring your friends, and join OC and Mother Nature in creating this never-ending om.
