THANK YOU!

Monday, August 9th, 2010

Thank you to all those who made a change to make a difference.  It was noticeable to see less plastic on the deck, fewer cars in the parking lot and lots of smiles.  Less meat consumed, less trees used to clean or absorb, more calories burned rather than oil.

Continue on…Don and I will be biking more often.  For me I found it to be exhilarating, as we listened to the birds and saw so much wildlife we often miss as we drive by.

Keep it Green!

Keeping it Green

Wednesday, July 21st, 2010

Calling all yoga students, Cape Cod, Key West and beyond.  Yoga on the Beach has a one week challenge for you.  Starting Aug 1- Aug 7 we’d like to inspire you to change something in your life that will diminish your eco footprint on planet Earth.

That’s right we’d like you to take your yoga practice off the mat (is it a green one?) and into your life by connecting up to Mother Earth.  Think beyond your “usual” and come to other possibilities.  Stretch your habits, breath fresh air while saying more please.

There are so many ways to approach this challenge.  You can start by thinking about what you most cherish and would like to honor about our beautiful planet.  Water, Air, Trees, our woodland friends can inspire you to make a difference.  What can you do that lessens the stress on them?

Here are a few ideas:

  • Walk or ride your bike to yoga class
  • Car pool with a friend, or two
  • Recycle your old mat
  • Say no to plastic (oil product)
  • Educate yourself about your landfill
  • Compost

You get the idea, there are endless possibilities, and we can’t wait to see how creative you can be.
So keep us posted on what you are doing to change your footprint by leaving a comment on our blog, or fill out a card at class.  Need more help check out The Green Guide or GLEE.  If you are in Mashpee check out The Green Design store in Mashpee Commons (Stop and Shop side).   We need to change our ways to make a difference.   United we make greater.
