International Yoga Day at Áras an Uachtaráin

International Yoga Day at Áras an Uachtaráin

The 21st of June this week saw global celebrations mark International Day of Yoga! Healing Yoga was honoured to be invited to a Garden Party hosted by President Higgins and his wife Sabina in the beautiful grounds of Áras an Uachtaráin!

The day was such a treat with a yoga practise on the lawn, a visit to the walled gardens, harp music, incredible singing, traditional Indian dance & a moving address by President Michael D.Higgins. It was a chance for a reunion with fellow Yoga Therapy Ireland friends and an opportunity to reflect on the sincere value Yoga brings to our lives.

I learnt that the President’s wife, Sabina, has been a practising Yogi for many decades and had the joy of chatting with her during the shared yoga practice. To top it off, the Irish Times included a photo of myself in dancer pose with the backdrop of Áras an Uachtaráin which featured in an international collection of photos marking the worldwide celebration.

A truly memorable occasion, sincere thanks to the President and his team for a wonderful day!
