Join us to celebrate the Autumn Equinox while celebrating 2-year anniversary of Inspire Yoga Studio and 1-year aniversary of Lululemon Athletica in Dubai. Equinoxes occur twice a year – in spring and autumn, when the night and day are approximately the equal lengths, which is when the sun crossed the equator. Traditionally, the autumn equinox is a celebration of the harvest, as it is when summer has finished giving its fruits, which are collected in preparation for winter. The Autumn Equinox is a mysterious time, as it heralds a time of growing darkness, because the sun continues to descend and diminish (as it has since the summer solstice) so that the nights are longer then the days, and increasingly so, bringing the change of seasons and the cold of winter. It marks an essential passage in the process of enlightenment that is often overlooked, misunderstood, and mistaken as dark and heretical. It is the time to balance day and night, before night takes over and brings the coming winter, a time of darkness and death. This duality between light and dark exists within humanity, and in work of spiritual transformation. The Autumn Equinox symbolizes a stage of inner preparation in the process of enlightenment- to make the way for the Sun to be born within at the winter solstice. Come and join us, to celebrate this transitional event and the opening on new Yoga Season in Dubai, and re-create yourself for this new season to come. Asanas, pranayama, and meditation will guide us along the day, as the fire of Agni will enable our Spirit to blossom.
