The power of letting go; it’s a beautiful thing.
We had the privilege of taking part in Toronto’s largest outdoor yoga session put on by Canadian active womenswear label, Lolë (low-lay) Yoga, as part of their Lolë White Yoga Tour. Over 2000 people, dressed in all white, gathered at the city’s Fort York National Historic Site, waiting to exhale.
Yoga is an ancient meditative practice which originates from India and has the power to bring physical, mental and emotional peace to those who make it a part of their lifestyle. The session, led by Lolë Ambassador, Grace Dubery, was nothing short of uplifting. Moving in unison with hundreds of strangers, dressed alike, fostering a sense of community, was inspiring to say the least.
With our world famous skyline against the grey and rain drenching us head to toe, it was purification. Yoga allows you to completely open your mind, your heart and release negativity; letting go of toxic emotions that cripple you day-to-day, keeping in line with Lolë’s philosophy, “Living Out Loud Everyday”. The rhythmic breathing and intimate concentration lifts you out of your shell and into a higher place of understanding and appreciation. “Lolë is part of a fundamental lifestyle movement that is changing the shape of the world around us through a wellness revolution,” says Bernard Mariette, CEO of Coalision (Lolë, Paradox, Orage).
They were also collecting donations on site to support the Harbourfront Community Centre helping them to offer free yoga, zumba and pilates classes. Lolë will be opening their first downtown Toronto store at 88 Yorkville Ave this Fall.
