Evolve are organizing a yoga flash mob! It’s going to be amazing.
Details are below:
When: Tuesday, May 10Where: Trafalgar Square, between the two fountains
Why: Flash Mobs are a large group of people who gather “spontaneously” in a public place, perform an unusual act then quickly disperse. The purpose of this Yoga Flash Mob is to create an awareness of yoga in London. By having it at an odd time, it helps create the element of surprise for those not participating.
How: Arrive before 6:20pm and hang around the area minding your own business. At 6:23pm (on the dot) a female leader will go through the Sun Salutation series once on her own. Please continue to look inconspicuous during this time. Allow her to do the series once, then feel free to join in at staggered times within the first 2-3 minutes. Then continue to participate for the 30 minutes. The Mob will last a half hour exactly. At the end (when the origional female leader leaves), please disperse and walk your own separate ways. We want to confuse and bemuse the public and leave them in bewilderment as to what just happened.
What: Please feel free to bring your own mat but do not lay it down until after 6:23pm. It will seem more spontaneous if you do not use a mat, but for health concerns, we understand if you choose to use one.
Attire: Business or everyday clothing. Just be sure you can move in it.
Where: Between the two fountains in Trafalgar Square, London.
…and then i found this – which i think is hilarious and really feel the need to share with you guys!
OK now i’m really going to bed! Nite nite x
Christiane has been practicing yoga for over 10 years. Her yogic journey began in 2000 as a student of Swami Nirmal (now at the Satyananda Centre in London) at the Fitness First gym in Kensal Rise, London. She experienced various teachers in different Fitness Firsts in Central London and around Clapham Junction before changing gyms and meeting Alexa Kho at LA FItness in Piccadilly Circus, London. Christiane attended Alexa's Anusara classes as well as her workshops.
In January 2011 she enrolls in a 200hr Vinyasa Flow Teacher Training course with Rebecca Ffrench at YogaLondon. Vinyasa Flow is a modern form of yoga that comes from Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and follows Sri K Pattabhi Jois. She quickly become passionate of this discipline and wants to deepen her knowledge; this brings her to meet and attend many workshops with Stewart Gilchrist, Shiva Rea, John Scott, Danny Paradise...all very famous teachers around the world. Being in the presence of such teachers is a significant experience for Christiane, in terms of her yogic journey, personal transformation and growth as well as understanding of yoga.
After 11years in London, she moves to Milan to deepen and continue her journey. In Milan she teaches privately (1:1 and group classes) as well as in various yoga and dance centers. Milan is where her love for Ashtanga Vinyasa deepens and grows, bringing her to attend workshops with Lino Miele, Sharath Jois and most recently Kino MacGregor...all original students of Guruji, Sri K Pattabhi Jois. All of this culminates with a long awaited and long overdue trip to India, the birthplace of Yoga. Here Christiane deepens her practice and knowledge of Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga by doing a 200hr Ashtanga Vinyasa TTC with Yogi Kamal Singh at Tattvaa Yogashala in Rishikesh India. After the monthlong course, her travels take her around India practicing with various other world renown teachers, namely with Sri V. Sheshadri in Mysore and with Rolf and Marci Naujokat in Goa.
In 2013 Christiane decides to embark on yet another yoga adventure, this time in Aerial Yoga! The course was divided into two weekends: level I in April and level II in June, after which she becomes a qualified Aerial Yoga teacher.
