Scott, Kayla and I were so lucky to be in Vietnam for their Lunar New Year, Year of the Pig. It was so interesting to see how they celebrated their most important holiday, which signifies the start of spring on the lunar calendar and preparation for an abundant growing season.
The entire city of Ha Noi was garnished in festive red and gold colors, symbolizing good fortune. Every business and home was decorated with peach tree blossoms and an orange or peach tree stood in the center of each building like a Christmas tree to signify abundance.
We went downtown on New Years Eve to engage in festivities and watch the fire works. People crowded around the central lake to listen to live music, eat street food and gather as much piggie decor as they could. Unlike celebrations in the United States, it surprised me to notice no one was drunk or even drinking alcohol. How refreshing it was to see people bringing in this special day in a healthy way.
In Vietnam, the Lunar New Year is focused around the family. People venture from all around the world to return to their home town and help bring in a healthy and prosperous New Year with their loved one. The Vietnamese believe that how you behave on the first day of the year will reflect how the next twelve months will play out. Therefore, everyone is on their best behavior being extra kind and generous during this time in hopes for a plentiful and successful year.
To celebrate the Lunar New Year, I was able to shoot this week’s short 12-minute FREE Hatha Yoga Class, YOGA FOR A HEALTHY CERVICAL SPINE, in Ha Long Bay, Vietnam. Through asana and focus on proper alignment, this class will increase flexibility and mobility of the cervical spine.
Yoga with Meditation Mutha is for everyBODY. Please join me in this opportunity to nourish a healthy spine. Enjoy!
