LORI McCALLISTER talks EQUINOXES, SPHINXES & YOGA FOR KUWAIT

The Spring Equinox happens every year when the center of the Sun aligns with the center of the Earth. Mankind has revered this special day throughout history, even building massive monuments to honor its sunrise.

The Sphinx was built to gaze due east toward the rising sun on the morning of the Spring Equinox. At noon the sun is aligned with the Great Pyramid in such a way that it casts no shadow. At the Kulkulkan Temple at Chichen Itza, Mexico, sunlight and a play of shadow cast the image of a slithering serpent descending the pyramid’s stairs on the day of the Spring Equinox. In the jungle of Cambodia lies the temple of Angkhor Wat where the Spring Equinox sun rises behind its central tower and crowns its pinnacle. The sun also rises up the middle of the Temple of the Great Jaguar in Tikal, Guatemala.   From megaliths in the ancient celestial calendar of Stonehenge to a chamber in a Neolithic mound in Knowth Ireland, so many ancient monuments pay homage to this significant day.

In recent years life has navigated my path to foreign soil for the Spring Equinox. Last year I co-led a yoga retreat to Machu Picchu, Peru. A year before that I frolicked in Costa Rica. Two years prior I pilgrim-aged to Kerala, India. For the Spring Equinox of 2013, I have the distinct honor of co-leading a 6 Day Chakra Vinyasa/Hatha Yoga Immersion in Kuwait with Dana Slamp. I am overjoyed with this opportunity to share the teachings of yoga and the chakras with a little LORIYOGA flavor to a whole new community.
