Sacred Summer Solstice

Sunrise Pyjama Yoga & Sunset Labyrinth Walk

June 21, 2018

The summer solstice is an ancient and sacred celebration of the longest day of the year. Join us for one or both our special events.

SUNRISE PYJAMA YOGA: Prince of Wales Park (southeast corner), 1 Third Street, Toronto 5:30-6:30am. Join WoW founder, coach, and yoga teacher, Lee, to greet the sunrise on the longest day of the year, It will be fun because it’s so early we expect you to simply show up in your PJs and smile! We will gather a few minutes before sunrise at 5:37am to watch the sun rise over the city skyline. Pyjama yoga sun salutation will follow! Lee will break down the sun salutation into easy pieces so everyone, no matter what your yoga experience, can join in. Bring a mat or towel. Suggested donation anywhere from $1-$5 which will help Friends of the Prince of Wales Park create fun events such as movie nights and more.

SUNSET LABYRINTH WALK: the labyrinth in High Park (north of the Grenadier Park Cafe parking lot), Toronto 8:30-9:30pmMeditation is an important component of the ancient practice of yoga, just as a celebration of the summer solstice has existed for millennia. Discover how a slow and meditative walk with others through the labyrinth is a powerful experience of universal love, energy, and intuition.

What Our Clients Are Saying...

I completed the WoW Walk Coach Certification with Lee and highly recommend it. Lee explains every aspect of walking technique, program design, and group dynamics you need in order to offer a successful walking program. She’s a true professional, and inspires you to share her enthusiasm in getting people moving!

Considering myself a strong power walker I decided to take WoW Power Walking Coach Certification ~ Online.  Lee has elevated my own power walking to a completely new level.  I could hardly believe how much faster I became within only a few weeks.  My technique has improved tremendously.  To my surprise I got interested in races, took part in a 5k event and despite snow had a great time. Lee’s technique break-down into progressions makes it very clear for a new coach how to help others improve their technique; which major aspects to focus on first and which finer modifications to work on later.

I have trained in the fine art of speed walking with Lee for more than 8 years. I am a runner who was always curious about walking fast. After my heart reminded me that it needed a bit of care, I found Lee. We have walked some 430 hours in the bright sunshine and in the dead of night, through blazing heat, numbing cold, rain, snow and even bits of ice. She has instilled in me the quest for the finish line be it my own 4 miles, or my crazy races with my kids and grandkids! Lee's smile and stamina are that contagious.
