Start by Lying Down

"I'm grateful I've found a way to help survivors. While the tsunami has affected us in varying degrees, yoga offers us all release and renewal."

Those are the words of Kirsten Moe-Kindermann as she recounts in Yoga Journal (July/August 2005) how she was able to offer help in fhe form of yoga to the grieving mother of a friend. The mother was despondent over the loss of her husband to the Asian Tsunami.

At first she was only able to do corpse pose, savasana. Soon she was joining in with other asanas. Eventually she was able to care for her famly again.

This story portrays one of the great characteristics of yoga: you can begin where you are.

Regardless of your present condition, you can do something. Start with what you have. Don't put it off, waiting for a better moment or more ideal circumstances.

It's been six months since the Tsunami first wreaked its destruction and devastation. News coverage around this anniversary is increasing. I encourage you to read this month's issue of Yoga Journal, p. 102-103, for this and other stories about how yoga has been a vehicle to provide relief for Tsunami vicitims.

We are especially grateful for the mention we received for our wristband project.. Already more I DO YOGA wristband orders are coming in. And that means more contributions are going to the American Red Cross for Tsunami aid.

I hope you'll click on today to help continue the good work we've already done on behalf of yogis everywhere. We've raised over $6,300!

Don't just read about it. Get up. Experience it. Experience yoga!
