Banana Block is a new living museum and events space set within a historic linen mill and inspired by the curious connections between Belfast and bananas. Peel the banana a little further and you’ll find a space for original ideas, creative learning and new connections. A space for celebrating eccentric histories and creating incredible futures.

I feel privileged to have this opportunity to collaborate with Banana Block for this year's Summer Solstice celebration. This day holds significance as the global observance of International Yoga Day, with the theme of "Yoga For Humanity." Our focus this year is to emphasize the holistic nature of yoga and its profound impact on promoting well-being and optimal health. By encouraging physical fitness, mental clarity, emotional balance, and spiritual growth, we aim to inspire a complete sense of vitality. In this vibrant Summer Solstice flow, we embrace the official arrival of summer and the midpoint of our year. As the days grow longer and the sun shines high in the sky, we tap into the refreshing energy that surrounds us. By taking our place on the mat, we cultivate deep gratitude for our achievements thus far, allowing introspection and wisdom to guide us as we celebrate our progress.
The Summer Solstice bestows upon us the energy to awaken our senses and flourish. Our practice begins with gentle breathwork, grounding meditation, and self-reflection, gradually transitioning into a serene, seated warm-up. The core of our flow comprises standing postures and Sun Salutations, paying homage to the radiant sun and harnessing its empowering energy. We then move into a nurturing reclined cool down, concluding with a guided body scan in Savasana.
As you depart, you will radiate vibrancy and embrace the invigorating new energy within you. Let us unite as a beautiful community and celebrate International Yoga Day in the most uplifting manner. Rise up, Collective! Shine brightly!
Please remember to bring along a yoga mat, towel or blanket for your comfort.
