Mob yoga session on the Casino terrace in Monaco – Where else?

Celebrating the Summer Solstice breathing as one

Saturday, June 21 I had the privilege to participate in a unique event in Monaco. What better way to celebrate the Summer Solstice and the Music Festival than a mob yoga session on the Casino Terrace, a moment of meditation and peace in the heart of busy Monte-Carlo. Breathe As One revealed another dimension of the buzzing Principality by enabling around 400 people from the yoga community from St. Tropez to Ventimiglia to come together in one place at one time on a fabulous sunny day. Throughout history many cultures have associated the summer solstice with a renewal of mind, body and spirit and a celebration of creative expression. Kellie’s Collective OM and Yoga Shala of Monaco collaborated to create this unique event bringing yoga to the people outdoors, inspired by the grand yoga movements happening around the world in places such as New York, Paris Madrid and Barcelona. At the origin of the project were four passionate, determined and peace loving women residing in the Principality: Careen Cassir, Nathalie Keuseoglou, Marina Tskhovrebov and Kellie Delkeskamp. A dream that become reality thanks to the support of the authorities in the Principality, the generous partnership with the SBM, the Town Hall, Carrefour who provided the necessary water, Nike and the association Namaste that distributed flowery bags made in Nepal. Yogi Alexander opened the ceremony with a soothing meditation where we all spontaneously became a chorus chanting mantras. It was followed by a one-hour long yoga class was lead by international master Nico Luce that filled us with energy. It was quite a work out as I felt it all over my body the morning after! There were prices for the most experienced participant as well as the youngest. Kellie promised to do it again next summer so mark your calendars!

Yoga is not a religion. It is a science, science of wellbeing, science of youthfulness, science of integrating body, mind and soul  – Amit Ray, Yoga and Vipassan: An Integrated Life Style
