About the Event
Join us for a blissful and transformative event celebrating “International Day of Yoga” 2023, hosted by renowned yoga instructor/mental health advocate Divayogi, Michelle Stafford, and the passionate equestrian expert, The Cotton Cowgirl, NaTeice Aisha. This extraordinary gathering will take place in the serene surroundings of Carroll Park, nestled in the heart of Baltimore City.
Prepare to embark on a journey of self-discovery, as we explore the profound benefits of yoga and the therapeutic presence of horses in promoting mental well-being and stress reduction. As the sun casts its gentle rays upon us, we will come together to embrace the powerful healing energies of these ancient practices.
Throughout the event, Divayogi will guide us through a series of grounding and centering yoga postures, creating an atmosphere of harmony and inner peace. Yoga, with its harmonizing blend of movement, breath, and mindfulness, offers a myriad of benefits for mental health. By cultivating a deep connection between body and mind, we can alleviate stress, anxiety, and tension, and unlock a sense of inner tranquility that resonates long after the practice ends.
Michelle and NaTeice will shed light on the profound impact of yoga and horses in managing and improving mental well-being. Drawing from their extensive knowledge and personal experiences, they will emphasize the importance of self-care, self-compassion, and the healing power of being present in the moment.
In addition to the transformative practice of yoga, NaTeice Aisha, The Cotton Cowgirl, will enlighten us about the incredible bond between humans and horses. Horses, renowned for their intuitive nature and therapeutic presence, have the remarkable ability to sense and respond to our emotional states. NaTeice will share her expertise on how interactions with horses can foster emotional healing, promote self-awareness, and deepen our connection with nature.
As you immerse yourself in this incredible experience, we encourage you to bring your own picnic meal, water, and a cozy blanket. Take the opportunity to nourish your body and soul amidst the beautiful surroundings of Carroll Park. Feel free to connect with fellow participants, share stories, and embrace the community spirit that this event embodies.
As the day draws to a close, we will gather in gratitude and reverence for a sunset agnihotra ceremony. This ancient fire ritual, symbolizing transformation and purification, will provide a profound moment of reflection and release. Together, we will honor our journey, express gratitude for the healing energy of yoga and horses, and set intentions for our continued growth and well-being.

Quote from Wikipedia:
"The International Day of Yoga has been celebrated across the world annually on June 21 since 2015, following its inception in the United Nations General Assembly in 2014. Yoga is a physical, mental and spiritual practice which originated in ancient India. The Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in his UN address in 2014, had suggested the date of June 21, as it is the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere and shares a special significance in many parts of the world."
