Yoga to the People is a unique donation-based yoga studio with the goal of recapturing what we consider to be the essence of yoga… simply put, yoga made available to everyone. In a time where yoga as a business is getting a lot of attention, the fact that it is being priced out of many people’s reach is in direct conflict with what we consider to be the spirit of yoga itself.
We’ve heard from people all over the country that they simply can’t afford to do yoga on a regular basis. We want to make it possible for everyone to do yoga regardless of economic limitations.
The beauty of this yoga is that it is challenging enough for all, yet not too extreme and therefore accessible to everyone.
The Green Festival has over 10,000 participants a year journeying to their prospective locations to find a healthier way of living. Bringing sustainability into their lives on every level. After speaking to several local yogis and yoginis about the idea of yoga and fashion. We discovered that while there is a definite sense of style within this community. They strongly desire their connection to Yoga as a union with self and the divine to be in the forefront. Seeing clothing as merely an extension of this expression. Its from this desire that we bring you Yoga: Poetry in Motion.
This 15 minute presentation takes a journey through the artistic and natural aspects of yoga. Local yoga teachers of all ages nationalities and sizes will model eco friendly fashion while preforming acro yoga, sun salutations, and sacred dance set to a mix of yogic songs and poetry written and performed by yoga teachers.
