The Yoke of Yoga



Prior to ecofabulous (and motherhood), I was so enthralled with yoga, I became a certified instructor and started my own line of gear.

Far from a simple exercise workout, yoga, which means "yoke" or "union," has deep green roots. Its ethos includes "ahimsa," which is a pledge of nonviolence toward the planet. Easy to see how this downward dog applies to the goal of sustainability. To revere the earth, as yoga advises, start by visiting the Green Yoga Association to find a teacher committed to eco-friendly practices.
