GREEN YOGA ASSOCIATION
April 15, 2010
The Green Yoga Association has helped bring the disparate worlds of spirituality and environmental activism together. By sourcing the innate ecological perspectives of yoga, Green Yoga has enriched the philosophical teachings of yoga, so that yogis everywhere may better understand the natural and necessary commitment to an ecological way of living. In just five or six years the Green Yoga Association has offered an outstanding number of projects to support planetary well being. These include three large conferences, a program to help yoga studios become greener with over a 100 participating studios around the world, local yoga study and support groups, Green Yoga teaching programs internationally, partnership with Yoga Journal to green the conferences, and a successful campaign to help people change from PVC yoga mats to more eco friendly mats. The Green Yoga Seva Groves project organizes donations for fruit tree planting to support permaculture, fresh local food, carbon sequestration, and a peaceful place to practice.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the sense of grounded and peaceful purpose among those practicing green yoga activism, despite the intensely challenging problems and crisis state of the planet.
