Grow Your Yoga 2018
Moksha and Modo Yoga Studios worldwide band together to in our annual‘GROW YOUR YOGA’ environmental outreach campaign to help protect, respect and replant forests.
For their 9th annual GROW YOUR YOGA campaign, Moksha and Modo Yoga studios have partnered with the David Suzuki Foundation, Junglekeepers, and One Tree Planted to help raise funds for habitat conservation and reforestation. Our collective 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 us closer to our BIG goal to raise $5 million since the first Moksha 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.
Grow Your Yoga is about taking the practice of yoga – a contemplative practice of inquiring, vulnerability and bravery– off of the mat, to help effect real change in the world. In addition to inviting our students to attend PWYC 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.
Trees, like us, exist in communities; and like the very forests that sustain our planet, you also create thriving communities at your studios. Our goal this year is to celebrate community – both social and ecological – by highlighting our Live Green and Community Support Pillars and lending our collective support to three incredible forest advocacy organizations: David Suzuki Foundation, Junglekeepers, One Tree Planted.
MYBW’s studio our goal is to raise $2,500, proceeds to Junglekeepers.
The collective Moksha / Modo worldwide community goal across all 84 studios is to raise $200,000
