In this article Linda Cholmondeley Smith shares how to join the Coromandel Peninsula online group for the 2022 Oneness Yoga Challenge, culminating in the International Day of Yoga.
This years Yoga Challenge can be taken up by anyone: individuals, families, yoga communities, educational institutions, workspaces, organisations, and clubs.
Why do the Oneness Yoga Challenge?
Either our bodies are tired, aching or at best relaxed. When we do experience ‘bliss’ in the body it heals the body, not only the body, it heals the mind as well. You are opening a new dimension in your awareness.
In the 7 day Yoga challenge the different postures and yantras being practised will help you awaken to your body bliss. You should do this yourself, but more importantly step out and share it with others. Let's use our energy to share and dream of a more harmonious world for all. A world of Oneness and happiness for all. We live in a World that is interconnected. It is therefore very important that a part of our mind thinks about others. Yes, think about our planet and animals, Yes think about our climate and earth. We also need to think about our fellow human beings. This world gives us so much. What can we give back? Sometimes we spend time thinking about plants and animals, and ignore human beings. We need to become something more.
We need to become passive activists – what do we mean by this? We cannot limit our kindness to thoughts and speech alone. You meditate for world peace, that is important it will help, you speak kind words, that is important it will help. But that alone is not enough, you must step into action. You must do something more. Passive activism is not driven by anger or hate or judgement, it is driven by “can I do something to help my fellow human beings, can I do something to make them happier, more fulfilled.
The upcoming Yoga Challenge is one such opportunity for all of us to step out and initiate this change. To step out and heal the bodies of young people, To step out and heal the minds of young people. This is a spectacular module created by Sri Preethaji to awaken to body bliss.The 2022's Oneness Yoga Challenge, built on chakra power, is offered to unlock your body bliss. Sri Preethaji's creation of this year’s Oneness Yoga Challenge is inspired by ancient Himalayan Yogis.
