Grow Your Yoga
Toronto, ON – Does yoga really have the power to save the world’s forests? The thousands of yogis behind Moksha and Modo Yoga’s Grow Your Yoga campaign sure thinks so!
For their 9th annual GROW YOUR YOGA campaign, Moksha and Modo Yoga studios worldwide have partnered with the David Suzuki Foundation, Junglekeepers, and One Tree Planted to help raise funds for habitat conservation and reforestation. Their goal is to raise a collective $200,000 by the end of April. After nearly 15 years of weekly by-donation karma class’ funds and donating to social, political, and environmental justice organizations, meeting their goal this year will put them closer to their BIG goal to raise $5 million since their first yoga studio opened its doors!
Known for their commitment to sustainability, human rights and social activism, Moksha and Modo Yoga studios are using this year’s GROW YOUR YOGA campaign to put more trees in the ground and protect critical habitat in the Amazon Rainforest, Costa Rica, and Canada. Each studio will donate 100% of their March and April Karma Class funds to benefit one of the three organizations, and will also be hosting a fundraising weekend on April 27-28-29, 2018 that will be full of fun and inspiring community building events. These events are open to the public and are sure to involve lots of hot yoga.
Grow Your Yoga is about taking the practice of yoga – a contemplative, peaceful practice – off of the mat and out of the studio, to help effect real change in the world. In addition to inviting people to attend Karma classes (by donation) at studios across Canada, the United States, Australia, and France, Moksha and Modo Yoga studios are encouraging students to get involved in spreading the word about their studio’s events to get even more people involved in raising funds for forests.
