What happens when you hear the stories of impending doom that hover over our human existence on the planet – nuclear war, drones, melting ice caps?
I picture an overwhelming problem that I am powerless to change. I feel helpless. Do you?
It breaks my heart. I started practicing my yoga outside, and I began to feel a deep personal connection with the earth. I am one who says she loves the outdoors. And it’s true! It’s also true that like you, I am human. I forget, I get swept up in this and that. I worry and wonder, “How I will survive?” and “How will I take care of those I love?”
How often do I wake up and remember that the answer is in the earth. It IS the earth. I wake up over and over again.
Yoga in Your Park is a call to action in the form of an outdoor yoga studio. Yoga means connection. Yoga in Your Park means connection to self, community, and the earth. Change starts with awareness. Within.
Remember a time when you were in love. Think of a relationship you care about. What actions have you take to care for, develop and maintain that relationship. Maybe you held the door open for her, or called to say hi.
This is what happens when you practice Yoga in Your Park. You will deepen into a personal intimate relationship with the earth. If you don’t already, you will care. You will learn that connecting to self, other and the earth is a PRACTICE. When you practice with us you cannot help but become aware of the ways your actions are out of line with your values. You will appreciate the LUXURIES of human being (like SUV’s and pretty clothes) while staying in alignment with what you truly care about. And it might be hard to believe, but this becomes effortless. Awareness is change.
You are a droplet in the movement of this coming wave; you are full of dynamic potential. Take your eyes off of the next disaster, place it on the solution, and come to class at Yoga in Your Park. Either way, go outside. Feel your feet on the earth, notice the sun, the clouds that make you grateful for it, and take a deep breath. It could change the world.
Yoga in your Park is a program of Children Families & Communities, a tax exempt non-profit organization.
Our call is to integrity. We are creating a yoga program and we are insanely committed to creating the world we want to call ours:
We are paying our yoga teachers well, we are enjoying human creations, we are staying awake and aware to how our actions impact this earth. Your membership, drop-ins and donations all go towards this end. We love you.
“There are moments in one’s life that appear at first to be a bit unplanned , spontaneous, where one is pulled to something quite out of the ordinary and out of one’s comfort zone . Yet days, sometimes months, even years later, one finds that moment to be a transformational point in one’s life . A few summers ago I had traveled across the country to visit some dear relatives who had been vacationing in Maine. At that point I had been newer in my yoga practice , was a bit shy and even a bit self conscious , yet I was drawn to try a class that I had seen advertised about a sunset yoga class on top of Cadillac Mountain. That decision to take that class was a pivotal point in my life, watching the sunset as I practiced yoga atop a beautiful mountain in one of our nation’s magnificent national parks changed my life’s path forever .”
