I’m hosting this event as a big “Thank You” to my Aura Yoga with Geri students and because we enjoy spending time together.
Yogapedia.com defines the Sanskrit word ‘KULA’ as a “community”, “clan”, “tribe” a “community of the heart”. “This kula, or community, of yogis is considered sacred because it is a group of people who come together freely, with intention and a shared sense of purpose.” This definition describes what I refer to as my ‘yoga family’, perfectly.

Last term we enjoyed a Christmas Advent theme whereby each week we adorned a particular theme. There were lights, sequins/sparkle, animal print, Christmas accessories, Christmas jumpers and fancy dress. Most students embraced these and each week was filled with a great deal of fun and laughter. I dressed as a pirate and Beyonce. It was the perfect prescription to lift our spirits and soothe our souls during ‘firebreak’, ‘lockdown’ and living life in the Covid19 Pandemic.
Thankfully, I’m able to continue to run a few yoga classes via ‘Zoom’ and I’m eternally grateful to those students who continue to support these sessions, especially when there are so many other yoga classes available online.
At the start of each ‘Zoom’ class we enjoy up to 15 minutes time to chat and I take the register. There’s lots of chat – shared experiences, joy and sorrow, coping strategies at this time. Every class is friendly and supportive with lots of fun and laughter. I’ve created a What’s App group for each class and we regularly keep in touch this way – sharing quotes, jokes and photos.
Lockdown 3 is certainly taking its toll, on the majority of us, as its ongoing, currently with no end in sight. We are missing our family, friends, freedom, holidays and our Aura Yoga with Geri social events. We do like to party!
I’m quite a frugal soul but last year I bought not one but three new dresses for a wedding, however, it was cancelled so the dresses remain in my wardrobe. I miss dressing up in nice clothes, high heels, jewellery, wearing make-up and doing my hair to got out to eat, drink, dance and be merry. I love dancing.
Then I decided to host a Soiree for Cocktails, Quiz, Song and Dance. I’ve applied my self-tanning lotion and decided on my outfit. At this week’s online classes we’ve been discussing the forthcoming event and what we plan to wear. I’m not quite sure how smoothly it will run however I know it will be memorable and fun.
I will let you know how we get on and perhaps share the quiz and some photos if you would like?
