Eco Yoga

Ideally the yogic philosophy of ahmisa—nonviolence towards oneself and others—should be applied, integrated and practiced both on and off our yoga mats. One of the most direct and simplest ways to practice ahmisa is by minimizing our environmental impact. Yogi’s already tend to be more eco-conscious than the general population and in our eco-yoga articles we provide additional ideas and tips to minimize harming the planet.
