Oh, Greta Thunberg. You are haunting my heart.

There is no need to discuss this, really.   Greta says that action is what matters.  

 This is when people usually start talking about hope-solar panels, wind power, circular economy and so on.  But I’m not going to do that. We’ve had 30 years of pep-talking and selling positive ideas. And I’m sorry, but it doesn’t work.  Because if it would have, the emissions would have gone down by now. They haven’t. And yes, we do need hope. Of course we do. But the one thing we need more than hope is action.  Once we start to act, hope is everywhere. So instead of looking for hope, look for action. Then, and only then, hope will come. 

Yoga teachers are supposed to be people who know a thing or two about health, kindness, non-violence.


How much of that knowledge are we putting into saving the earth?  

In that spirit, here is something that I want to change, right now.  I’m shouting it from the proverbial rooftops so that I really, really do it.   It’ll be embarrassing if I don’t, right?

-Going to the refill shop.  Buying glass bottles for as many household products as possible, thus reducing my dependency on single-use plastics.   It’s a small step, and it’s just a beginning, but it’s something. 

Yoga teachers, who’s with me?  Which habit can you change to help save our beautiful planet, right now?  Let’s support each other to make “save the planet” our new mantra.
