My partner and I went around the neighborhood and sowed some seeds into the planters. I’ve always been inspired by guerrilla gardening. Look up Ron Finley’s Gangsta Garden project to feel inspired yourself! He even has a TED talk about it.
As we exist on the tipping point of destruction or saving our planet, each act as small as a seed being planted could make a big difference! How will we survive if things do collapse? By adapting, figuring out ways to DIY, growing edible landscapes and then knowing how to cook what was grown from scratch, networking into smaller communities, prevention of diseases through self care practices, etc. Collapse really could happen any time, a peculiar piece of evidence that I caught was a commercial on TV for 15 year supplies for a family of prepackaged meals in case of an emergency.
To be responsible is to be prepared. To be prepared through the various mentioned ways would undoubtedly soften human’s load on the planet anyways and thereby reduce whatever consequences we would face if we didn’t start preparing now.
This week we move into Spring, so it is time to practice growing some edible plants, especially those of you who think you can’t!!! Herbs are a good place to start. Lay some seeds down, connect to your community, bicycle instead of drive, and know that this is all part of our ahimsa practice towards the Earth and all of its current and future inhabitants. This is our karma yoga, to selflessly serve the earth and al it’s people, plants, animals, and insects, even when it’s not the most convenient for your self.
PS. If you’re in Milwaukee, you can come to Eco Yoga Sunday’s at 10AM and know that 20% of total proceeds from your asana practice is donated to organizations that keep rainforests intact!
Yoga teacher training isn’t just an opportunity to learn to teach yoga, it’s where you refine all levels of your yoga practice. The yoga teacher trainings I have participated in always felt like stepping into a cocoon to emerge at the end with glistening wings of knowledge and love.
Yoga changes your life, yoga teacher training is the acceleration of your evolution into the best version of yourself.

The Spring Equinox is a time of balance between light and dark hours of the day. Times of darkness are times to dream up intentions, and times of light are the times in which we work to manifest these intentions into reality. Spring is a time of planting seeds, metaphorical and literal, and of nourishing the soil for these seeds to grow. This equinox yoga nidra practice will provide the opportunity to ceremoniously plant your intention seed and gather and focus your conscious and subconscious powers to nourish this intention seed into its maturity. This hour-long Yoga Nidra, similar to a guided meditation practiced in savasana, will be deeply relaxing and will allow you to access all of the layers of the Self to heal and grow.
