Yoga On The Rock is about the how and why for yoga in Bermuda ( the Rock as it is known). The general feeling about Bermuda is that if you live in a place so aesthetically beautiful, then you must be living in Nirvana. But nirvana, according to the Buddha, is a state of mind, not a state of place. Hence in this small-town diverse international community where life happens while living in a fishbowl, learning to cope requires rock steady confidence. Yoga helps maintain the balance.

Pope Francis sends Blessings To Bermuda
Papal Prayer from Pope Francis to the
Citizens of Bermuda- Overflying Bermuda
On Saturday afternoon, September 19, 2015, Flight Crew
members from Alitalia Flight 4000 (AZA4000) en route to Havana, Cuba, from
Rome, Italy, contacted the Bermuda Air Traffic Control (ATC) Tower. The
aircraft was inside Bermuda airspace at the time and the pilot stated that Pope
Francis was on board and wanted to pray for Bermuda. He transmitted a prayer on
the ATC Tower frequency and then proceeded on his historic flight to Cuba.
The radio transcript of the prayer reads: “I send cordial greetings [to] your
Excellency and your fellow citizens. As I fly over your country [Bermuda] on my
way to Cuba for a pastoral visit; evoking these blessings upon you all. I ask
Almighty God to grant to the nation; wellbeing and peace. From a peaceful Pope”
Then the Bermuda Air Traffic Controller on duty at the
time thanked him on behalf of Bermuda and wished him God’s Blessings on his
flight. He responded “Thank you”.
