The central tenets of yoga provide a framework to help manage our inner needs and desires, and when applied to communities and societies, can serve as a catalyst for change. As the evidence of climate change continues to draw focus to the urgent need for action, voices from both the worlds of Yoga and Environmental Science are drawing attention to the important role that personal transformation through Yoga can play in the solution.  Join us as a group of leading voices explore the profound connection between the practice of yoga and the sustainability of the Earth and its resources, and hear about important projects that are leading the way.
