Perfect 10 Lifestyle Dashama's Blog
Dashama will visit 12 countries teaching Pranashama Yoga workshops and retreats during the Global Book Tour for the expanded edition release of Journey to Joyful.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Los Angeles, California, United States of America (Free-Press-Release.com) August 26, 2011 --LOS ANGELES, August, 2011 -- Dashama's Global Book Tour, Journey to Joyful, kicks off this September in partnership with National Yoga Month and Yoga Health Foundation. Starting with a 5 day yoga and thai massage immersion in Mexico, she will jet over to Europe at the end of September visiting Finland, Vienna, Paris, Milan, Spain, Scotland, 3 cities in UK, Isle of Man and Ibiza. Her only full week retreat scheduled for this fall will take place in Ibiza, Europe's choice for vacationing in the Mediterranean. The Ibiza Retreat will take place October 8-14 and is accepting a limited number of participants at their private villa on the ocean. Catered by raw organic and vegan cuisine, there will also be seafood options and the group will follow a special diet to help participants detoxify and drop body fat. 3 Yoga Classes per day will be available with plenty of time to soak up the sunshine and jog along the cliffs over looking aqua blue ocean views. On October 21 & 21 Dashama and Dave Smyth will cut the ribbon for the first Pranashama Yoga Studio on the Isle of Man. Located between UK and Ireland in the Irish Sea, Isle of Man is a hide-away escape for Londoners who are known to commute to and from work by a short 40 minute flight to avoid hectic city traffic. The ribbon cutting and workshops sold out in less then 12 hours, but there will be video footage captured and viewable, as the entire tour is being broadcast via Youtube and Dashama's Online Journey to Joyful Reality TV Show .
Journey to Joyful is being called 'The New Yoga Bible" by her publishers at North Atlantic Books and has been praised by magazines and her peers as an important book to inspire readers to live a happy healthy life, despite life's challenges and especially in times of adversity. Jetting back to the USA, Dashama will fly directly into NYC October 24, to attend 'An Evening with Ralph Lauren Charity Event', hosted by RL and Oprah Winfrey. "In times of great economic, environmental and health related challenges, such as those we are facing right now, it is imperative that we have great leadership to help people see a light at the end of the tunnel. Better days are coming and the next golden age is closer then we think. Right now, people are discovering the true essence of happiness and being encouraged to look within themselves for courage, strength and to discover their unique purpose. The more people who are ignited with purpose for their life, the better this world can become. When we allow others time and space to shine, we collectively create a more beautiful world for us all to live in. It's a win-win for all."
Every year around this time yogis and conscious people from all over the world gather at localized events known as Global Mala projects. These gatherings have one intention: to unite the community and as each event is a 'bead on the strand' we join forces with our kindred souls and offer our love, devotion, prayers and honor the gift of life.
The Los Angeles Global Mala Event was the largest in the world last year, with thousands of people gathering to do 108 rounds of Sun Salutations for World Peace.
Global Mala is coming up this Sunday, so find an event near you (globalmala.org ) and get involved. If you don't have any events near you, consider gathering with some friends to join in with your own mala bead offering. And perhaps next year, you will be so moved to organize and/or lead an event of your own :)
Here's a wonderful video from last year's event. Enjoy! And remember, in order to be the change you want to see in the world, we must begin in our hearts and minds. Setting our intentions upon what it is that truly matters and how we can most effectively impact the world, our families, our own personal path and journey.
