Rodney Yee and Colleen Saidman were at Gaiam today – March 31, 2010.
They have been working on new and continuing yoga projects with Gaiam, as well as visiting with staff for Q&A sessions and individual interviews.
They led Gaiam staff through a memorable yoga class. Check out the photos from this class and see for yourself what makes Rodney and Colleen yoga “royalty.”
As you will have already heard and seen across the news, a cataclysmic earthquake measuring 7.0 magnitude caused absolute devastation in Haiti on January 12, 2010.
Thousands of people still remain trapped under rubble and international aid workers are scrambling to provide medical care, food and water to tens of thousands of surviviors.
Actress, film producer, director, human rights activist, environmentalist, organic farmer *and* UNICEF ambassador Trudie Styler will be appearing on The Martha Stewart Show tomorrow, January 8.
It’s Martha’s 2010 Yoga Show, and Trudie will be joining her to discuss all of the wonderful benefits of yoga practice, talk about her new Warrior Yoga® DVD, and lead the audience through a routine. Best of all, she’ll be showing off our new Medallions Yoga Mat! Here are more details:

In the summer of 2009, we asked our friends on Facebook and Twitter to tell us which composters they think we should carry in Gaiam’s spring 2010 catalog. We took the top eight suggestions and let the community vote on them. The two finalists were then compared in an ongoing video series called the Compost-Off, each of which is shared below.
Here’s one way Gaiam gave back this holiday season: We donated 500 turkeys to the Denver Rescue Mission, helping to provide Thanksgiving meals to the poor and homeless in the Denver area.
“Gaiam has sent an important message to those we serve — that there are many who care,” says Lisette Williams, manager of community events and procurement for the Denver Rescue Mission.
“We’re given one body in this precious life. It needs maintenance; it needs to be empowered,” says Trudie Styler in this video interview with her and husband Sting for the new Trudie Styler workout and healthy lifestyle DVD series by Gaiam. “I doubt that we’d be able to get through as much as we do without a fitness routine. Fitness plays a huge part in daily life for us both.”

Last weekend I presented three Yoga Tune Up® workshops at the Inner IDEA Conference near Palm Springs, Calif. This yearly gathering brings together the leading innovators of the mind-body fitness world to convene at the serene La Quinta Resort in Palm Desert. As always, the event saw a great turnout. My Yoga Tune Up® workshops were packed, and Gaiam and its SPRI team generously provided a variety of props for my sessions.
Gaiam garden volunteers have harvested and enjoyed a bounty of delicious organic fruits and veggies this summer from the Gaiam community garden at our headquarters in Boulder, Colo.
We began harvesting our plentiful red-leaf lettuce in June and now have a healthy new crop of green-leaf lettuce.
Last month Gaiam staffers contributed 40 fully-packed backpacks to the Crayons to Calculators school supply drive, which aims to provide 5,000 backpacks to children in need to start their school year off right.
Our staff’s huge outpouring of support for the Crayons to Calculators program is clear in this mountain of donated backpacks … The girls from Gaiam’s HR team paused for a photo before prepping the packs for volunteers to fill at our Boulder, Colo., headquarters.
They’re named for our Go Zero carbon offset program — but this crew could go by “Spontaneous Combustion” for how they ROCK even though they’d never played together until the night before their debut at our last company picnic. The Go Zeros had us hoppin’ again last week with some Bob Marley, John Lennon, U2, Police, Steely Dan … You know the band is good when people start dancing with their coworkers in broad daylight. Check out the video, and scroll down for a couple more photos plus the details on the fabulous FOOD.
