Salute to the sun

While we shivered through the winter solstice yesterday, over 14,000 people practised their yoga poses in Times Square, New York to celebrate the summer solstice in the northern hemisphere at the annual Mind over Madness event now in it's 10th year.

Talk about inspiring!  Yoga is practised by millions of people all over the world and it's interesting to know that in western societies, women make up 80% of the participants.  I did make it to a screening of Yogawoman last year at Lululemon Athletica in Camberwell with my friends Jules and Nik who are also long-time yoga practitioners.  Lululemon Athletica have another store at Westfield Doncaster - they are a Canadian company.  If you're after Australian yoga apparel - check out the Abi & Joseph website who also have an organic range.

Just a reminder too that the Monty Farmers Market is on tomorrow - have a great weekend!  And namaste to all my fellow yogis out there.
