Earth Day YogaAs you grow and deepen your conversation with yoga, it becomes quite clear that the yoga practice must stretch far beyond the boundaries of that little sticky mat. Naturally, your practice begins to bleed into every part of your life, saturating your world with concepts like ahimsa (non-violence). Part of that concept is living in a way that is non-harming to the Earth.

Earth Day is the perfect opportunity to explore this mind-set, as we look for ways to give back to our life-sustaining planet. Every moment we are nourished and blessed by the abundant gifts of the Earth, and on this particular day we have the chance to give gratitude back to the source! This is a special chance to develop lasting rituals in your yoga practice and in your life that nurture an eco-centric approach to everyday living and that have the potential to last all year round.

First Date with Organic Cotton

OK, so I know organic food is better for you. But I have to admit I thought organic cotton clothing was something for the very rich and picky.

Then a few months ago I laid eyes on a T-shirt I loved that was made of organic cotton, and it didn’t look snobbish at all. It was cute and had a great line: Peace. And it helps support charities, too.

Woman at an Eco-Friendly Spa

If you’ve had the good fortune to pamper yourself at a fancy spa, you know how fabulous it feels to be steamed, sprayed, scrubbed, stroked and soothed. Chances are you may have been too distracted to notice the large volumes of water used, or to tally up the number of chalk-white robes and towels that must be laundered and bleached every day. But over-the-top indulgence doesn’t have to mean being environmentally profligate.

Composting with worms? Bring it on. Leaving the car and taking my bike? My pleasure. Eating hormone-free, antibiotic-less, locally-raised meat? Yum, yum.

But forsake fashion? Toss my trend-addiction? Lighten my carbon footprint by giving up shoes? I’d sooner give up exhaling.
