GMkpPP%HSKeo3p0JWihhNw.jpg

A beach-y image for those needing a change of scenery. And the theme of this month's 12x12 suggestions. Garbage and plastic in the ocean. MARRRRRRCH is month 3 of our 12x12 Environmental Initiative with the following suggestions; expanding and reorganizing the Environmental Rs.

For those of you seeing this for the first time, a quick catch up... we’re looking to our community of friends and yogis to consider adopting a new environmentally friendly change each month for the next 12 months. Keep the suggestions and efforts coming and we'll add them to our list.

Join our force of concerned yogis that can change our minds and therefore, anything.
