VIDEO: IRIS Yoga and Wellness Festival 2017
IRIS Yoga and Wellness Festival 2017 | Wow, wow, wow! What an incredible weekend this was. I spent the weekend of 27 to 28th May at IRIS Your Escape, Hong Kong’s biggest yoga and wellness festival. The energy and the community spirit was beautiful.
Thousands of yogis gathered together – moving, breathing and flowing as one. It was magical. I drank it all in and then grabbed my video camera… once a journalist, always a journalist. I just couldn’t help myself!
I also led a yoga nidra class at IRIS. Nothing could have prepared me for the feeling of gratitude and awe that flowed through me during the session.
There were so many people – the meditation dome was completely packed so people started to lay their mats around the dome and then quickly spilled out all over the lawn. There must have been about 80 people there… my biggest class to date!
I sandwiched myself between the meditation dome and the lawn (in full sun – yes, I am sunburnt!!) and tuned in to the beautiful sounds of Diana Minikeva playing her hand pan. And off we went into a deep state of profound relaxation.
This was one of my happiest moments since arriving in HK three months ago. I let it flow through me and felt so deeply connected to all the beautiful souls who turned up to share in the magic of yoga nidra with me.
I am deeply grateful to everyone who came, and to the organisers of IRIS for putting together this incredible, heartfelt event. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Yoga nidra helps you deeply relax and let go, but it goes so much deeper than that. It can truly transform your life and start to reprogramme your subconscious mind. Try it for yourself.
