Tips for Reducing your Waste by Shia Su

1 - Why zero waste?

According to the most recent IPCC (UN) study, we only have until 2030 to prevent the most catastrophic consequences of climate change. We are running out of time, simple as that. Zero waste is certainly not the only way to shrink your environmental footprint, but it is one that most people can integrate into their daily lives. Don't let the "zero" in zero waste scare you off. It really isn't about perfectionism. It is about being more intentional. We are so used to seeing our food packaged in plastic, and we're all buzzing around checking things off our to-do lists—-we rarely take the time to take a step back and to see our seemingly mundane daily choices for what they are. What we chose to buy (and to not buy) has an impact. Many things come at a price, but often it's not us who are paying for it. I started the journey because I didn't want to live at the expense of other humans, animals, and our whole eco system. Zero waste helps you build sustainable habits that are both good for you and this precious world we all have to share. […]

The creation of our Advanced Teacher Training

One of the questions that came up in our our last Advanced TT Info Session was "Why did you decide to start offering an Advanced Teacher Training?" I started by responding that it was the same reasons we created our 250 hour training; we saw an interest in going deeper into yoga, to know more about the philosophy, anatomy, meditation, etc., more than we could fit into a regular class on the schedule. Our workshops were very popular, but people wanted to go deeper, and we have a staff full of knowledge in many different aspects of yoga. Our teachers have grown and benefitted from the knowledge they have acquired, and they are eager to pass it on, to help others, so we created our first teacher training. […]

A Retreat to the Land of Dreams

A Retreat to the Land of Dreams

The most common thing I’ve heard from retreaters since we’ve been back is: “It was so quiet when I returned home.” To be clear, we aren’t referring to how loud we were as a group, but rather the rhythmic jungle sounds that lulled us to sleep every single night from the day we arrived. There was something magical about Tierra de Sueños that Saturday night. The environment was calm and peaceful and when Ana, Tierra’s front desk assistant, guided us individually through the lush jungle towards our rooms, I knew that yes, in fact, we were in a land of dreams.

Yoga and Yoko Ono

Everyday I am grateful for the practice of yoga and the instruction I receive at Luna Yoga, where I have been a student for almost ten years now. As I began to learn more about the teachings of yoga, I couldn’t help but make associations with the artist Yoko Ono, whose work we are presenting in our upcoming exhibition. Yoga shows us how to focus on the breath as a way to come into the present moment, while making more space in the body for peace and love. While part of yoga is a physical practice, the wholeness of yoga engages with our spirit, which nurtures compassion and hope as we cultivate a union with our Divine Selves. From that union we may transcend from our attachment to the body and mind in order to be truly free. What I have found since exploring these beautiful tenets of yoga, is that they have so much in common with the ideas that come out in the art of Yoko Ono. […]
