Every Monday night, around 20
neighbours and friends visit the Ottawa Bahá'í Centre on MacArthur
Avenue to attend a Bahá'í devotional gathering featuring yoga.
The purpose of this devotional program is to allow friends and
neighbours to come together and awaken their spirit through gentle yoga
postures and deep relaxation.
The hour-long program gives participants a opportunity to unwind from a
busy week, release tension and come to a place of reflection.
Interspersed through the program are inspiring quotations and time for
meditation. These healing words from various sacred scriptures and
other inspirational sources act as a balm upon the participants’ souls.
A focus on the present moment allows participants to release regrets
and unhappiness and let go of the fear and tension. A sensation of
refreshing peacefulness is the result!
Participants keep coming back to class because of the environment of
respect, unity and fellowship. They soon discover that the yoga
devotional is about much more than exercise – it is a spiritual journey.
We hope that you will come and enjoy the deep peace and relaxation
brought by this devotional gathering.
