THE ODE TO THE MOON YOGA MAT BY MIKA YOGA WEAR

 

“The moon understands what it means to be human.
Uncertain. Alone. Cratered by imperfections.”

I remember the first time I read this quote by Tahereh Mafi, from a poem called Shatter Me. I clearly remember feeling my soul trembling and my heart shaking as I read it. 

This poem gave my soul a voice, a voice that for a long time I tried to shut down, to avoid the brutality of the reality that trapped me.

I was living in Manhattan at the time and I was trapped in an abusive relationship. It took so long for me to admit what I was going trough and make a change. 
It took a lot of courage, strength and faith.

That's why I created Ode to the Moon, my personal battle against the silence that surrounds domestic violence. 
My attempt to use yoga and music to heal the souls of those who are suffering. Because violence is never the answer. Love is. *
I am proud, honored and excited to show you the results of my collaboration with artist Thuy
Dockendorfig @mango_twee and @mikayogawear: THE LUNA MAT.
