Fourth Annual Winter Solstice Celebration at Yoga Parkside

The holiday season is supposed to be a time of rest, relaxation and reflection. It’s supposed to be a time to be with family, sharing stories and looking into the future. But more often than not, the holidays becomes a time of chaos, when people find themselves running around trying to tie loose ends together before the new year comes to a close.

Yoga Parkside doesn’t want you to fall into the same trap that so many people tend to fall into. That’s why, each year they hold a Winter Solstice Celebration that is meant to intentionally slow you down. Yoga Parkside wants you to take a step back, to think about the important things in life – family, community, health and wellness. By doing this, you will reemerge from the Winter Solstice feeling refreshed and reinvigorated.

This year’s event includes a ceremony to light candles as the sun sets and a shared slow vinyasa or restorative yogic practice as we begin the longest night of the year. Also we will have crafts and activities for the kids while the yoga classes are happening. Then we will feast together at a community potluck followed by singing, storytelling, and dancing! Come join us as we celebrate our beautiful space and community.

5:00 PM – Candle lighting ceremony and yoga practice, crafts and games for the kids

6:15 PM – Community Potluck/ Litany for the Winter Solstice

7:30 PM – Kirtan (call and response singing and chanting) and storytelling

8:45 PM – Dancing
