What do with significant events of 2014 have to do with yoga? Yoga embraces everything we do on and off the mat. Yoga brings awareness into “how” we do what we do. The world changes as a result of our smallest actions. So be proud of this list, you have probably contributed to it in some big or small way.

10. “Gangnam Style” is the first video to reach 2 billion views on YouTube. We all danced to this once this year! May 31st

9. Emma Watson delivers an address to a standing ovation at UN Headquarters in New York City, helping launch the UN Women campaign HeForShe, which calls for men to advocate for gender equality. It’s time to stand up in integrity, especially in the locker room. Sep 18th

8. Scotland legalizes same-sex marriage. Bravo! It’s good to be Scottish. Feb 4th

6. There will be an expectation that the next United Nations head will be a woman. It’s very positive to see gender equality in the leadership of our world. Dec 13th

5. 13 years after the twin towers were destroyed in the 9/11 attack, New York’s 104-storey World Trade Center re-opens in Manhattan. Some things take longer than others to re-build. Nov 4th

4. Germany celebrates the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall; white balloons marking a stretch of the wall symbolize its disappearance. I still remember when the wall came down in 1989, and I think remembering our history stops us from repeating it. Nov 9th

~Miranda T., Edmonton AB

Me… so far

© Cloe AignerJust like my grandfather who told his stories from India, I love telling stories that help us to see and understand ourselves. I'm working on creating peace on the planet by working on both our inner and outer worlds. As Carl Jung put it: "As within, so without". Or as Maharishi said “If you accomplish something at the gross and sacrifice the subtle, what have you accomplished?”
I'm no guru and I don't have all the answers. I make mistakes and I think that makes me a better teacher. The insights and tools that I offer are like a roadmap for the grounded spiritual seeker and they help to give clarity and understanding for your experiences. Together, we'll keep it real with heart, humility and laughter. Read More About my Journey...
