There is no animal more fitting than a butterfly to embody the current times, as we emerge from a worldwide pandemic and look towards change in our society. It’s time to shed the comforts of our cocoons, and rebirth ourselves with new strengths and perspectives.

Hi! I’m Lisa, and this is my 10th year participating in VIDEA’s Global Solidarity Challenge. I’m excited to be part of a team of butterflies this year. The butterfly symbolizes transformation, movement and renewal but also playfulness and light of being. What better way to represent the butterfly, then to challenge myself to strengthen the body, focus the mind, and relax the spirit through daily yoga practice!? I hope you will join me in flexing those wings and let out your inner butterfly!

The past year and a half, we’ve been locked down as we’ve watched tragedies unfold in the world around us. I am extremely grateful to work with an organization that, despite COVID-19, has found new ways to deliver programming to reach those experiencing increased isolation and vulnerability as a result of these restrictions, while continuing to support the individuals already in our programmes.  The VIDEA team has been working tirelessly to implement change where it’s needed most – on decolonization and reconciliation, climate change, gender inequality, racism, online hate, and access to basic human rights.

Due to unrestricted funds raised in VIDEA’s annual Global Solidarity Challenge, VIDEA was able to direct resources where and when it was needed most during the ever-changing climate of this global pandemic. Please donate to help continue this incredible work!

Stay tuned for a Butterfly Team yoga class by donation, details coming soon!
