Yogis today all meditate on the pollution they cause water. In scotland I met Tibetan yogis who like soapwort very much as a europeans alternative to soapnuts for good karma washing.
The who is who of Yoga by Uttrang Kaur KhalsaPart 1
Today I met Kuldeep Singh. He has lived in the holy city of Anandpur Sahib for a ‘long long time’.
He is an old man now, so his spiritual practice in this time is listening to spiritual stories which are told each day.
Traditionally, students of yoga have served their teachers/gurus in exchange for knowledge. There are still thousands of dedicated yogis living in the Himalayas and elsewhere, practicing original teachings and exploring new ways. At the same time, we have an abundance of 'new' yoga all over the world, sometimes the branches of yoga are growing far away from their roots. The aim of this project is to build goodwill bridges between the ancient roots in India and the western branches.
Having been one of the organisers of this year’s Brighton Yoga Festival, which raised money for two local charities, I got the chance to meet many incredibly kind and passionate people, all of whom care about spreading the word of yoga in order to help others. The festival was a huge success and I’m so grateful to have been able to teach a class on the main stage with the very talented DJ OM Nebula providing beautiful music. Pink Namaste helped to fund the festival, and were there raising awareness about their fairtrade Yoga products. Through Pink Namate, I met Diego Barraza, the director of Part & Parcel who introduced me to his documentary. If you’re interested in learning more about Yoga and what it really means, then this is a film definitely worth watching. Read on to find out more….
Delighted to be part of this event with the wider Yoga community of the UK and support the important work of the Hope Foundation.
Drumroll please! We are so very happy to announce that we, with your
incredibly generous help and support, have raised a staggering
£19,804.12 for HOPE from this year's Yoga Garden Party.
As always, we continue to support HOPE's projects, homes and programmes for the street and slum children of Kolkata and in particular a protection home for HIV infected and affected children. This home provides residential care, education, healthcare, counselling and recreation to 25 children whose lives have been changed dramatically as a result of infection or a primary caregivers death. We received this lovely photo from Kolkata this morning and sincerely, from the bottom our our hearts, thank you all so much, together we CAN make a difference to the country that gave us yoga.
