Caring for the planet, we care for ourselves.
We may have heard of hot temperatures, rising sea levels, extinction of species, melting polar ice caps, deforestation, increasing cancer rates and depletion of resources. Despite our awareness, it may be difficult to fully understand the consequences of not being good environmental stewards, in our lifetime and for generations still to come.
In yoga class we bring awareness to our breath and our karma (action), knowing fully that for every action there is a reaction. On our mat it begins with an inhale (setting our intention) and ends with an exhale to all living beings, "That they may be happy and free". We also send love and compassion to ourselves, our family and all living beings. When we connect with our pure soul (light), we come to realize that peace, joy, happiness, compassion and wisdom are within each of us and when we set and cultivate the time to get to know and use them, all that remains are uplifting actions that serve the good of mankind and our Mother Earth.
Ilona realizes that to make big changes we have to start with small steps.
Ilona's Eco-Friendly Initiative...
Join the chant and take action. "May all beings be happy and free" and "may my daily actions serve planet earth". While some changes may seem impossible remember there are many simpler and less expensive options and every tiny step is a contribution to the large change.
