KARMA YOGA (Things To Do) February – April 2018 UPDATED!

“Cast your bread upon the water and it shall return to you.” – My great-grandmother Pam, quoting Ecclesiastes 11:1

“The law of Karma is a universal process, whereby causes lead to effects. This is something that all of us are already familiar with, whether or not we use the word Karma to describe it. Newton’s third law of motion, that every action leads to a reaction, is an application of the law of Karma. ” – Swami Jnaneshvara Bharati

KARMA – action {thoughts, words, deeds}, work (root word: “kr” = action)

YOGA – union (root word: “yuj” = to yoke, to join)

Any thought, word, or deed that brings us closer together is a uniting action (karma-yoga). Whether you pick up a piece of trash left by another; tithe; volunteer; or start your hatha yoga (physical asana practice) by dedicating your efforts to someone else – do it with joy; do it with bliss; do it with love and devotion.

“a karma yogi devoted to service to spread truth & peace” – from Be The Change by MC Yogi

Community Karma Yoga @ Nokomis Yoga

When Rachel Guvenc started teaching at Nokomis Yoga she noticed we were missing something…something important…an opportunity to give back. As a direct result of her efforts, 5 classes donated a total of $900 to 5 non-profits in 2017. This year, let’s double that impact!

Thanks to all the Karma Yogis who practiced on March 10th! We donated $400 to Project for Pride in Living!


For the fifth annual Kiss My Asana yogathon, I will host two (2) donation-based events inspired by Matthew Sanford’s teachings, as well as the spirits of everyone practicing yoga together – regardless of their size, shape, or physical and mental abilities. We’re going to have some energetic fun and donate all the proceeds to Mind Body Solutions. The classes include partner work and are open to all abilities, but we have very limited space.

Saturday, April 7th (2:30 PM – 4:30 PM) at Nokomis Yoga (2722 E 50th Street, Minneapolis)

Saturday, April 28th (4:00 PM – 6:00 PM) at Flourish pilates+yoga+bodywork (3347 42nd Ave S, Minneapolis)

Please RSVP to myra(at)ajoyfulpractice(dot)com if you would like to join us.
