Earth Day: Yoga to Ground & Connect with the Earth Element

Earth Day: Yoga to Ground & Connect with the Earth Element

Happy Earth Day 2022! On April 22nd, the fifty-second Earth Day, join us to commemorate this year’s Earth Day theme of Invest in Our Planet. Yoga practice, comprised of the earth’s elements of earth, air, fire, water, and ether, naturally honors our planet and is embodied in the yogic concept of Ahimsa or non-harming. To celebrate, YogaDownload is offering our biggest sale of the year so you can maintain a consistent yoga practice and feel connected to the earth beneath us. 

Sometimes we can get caught up in the day-to-day and forget to express gratitude for the planet that sustains us with air, water, food and all that nourishes us. We’ve got a few suggestions for you to try this Earth Day to honor this universal worldwide celebration.

1. Practice yoga outside. Instead of practicing indoors, grab your yoga mat and practice on the grass or the dirt with the sun shining down on your skin, the earth supporting you, and the fresh air refueling you with each and every breath. The more connected you feel to the world around you, the more each action you take can help preserve it. Hint: try one of our earth-themed classes releasing this week.

2. If the distance allows it, ride your bike or walk to work. If not, carpool or hop on the train or the bus to help minimize pollution. Each mindful act we take as individuals to implement change benefits our communities.

3. Small actions add up. Here are some suggestions to try: 

  • Minimize your use of single-use plastic by investing in a stainless-steel or glass water bottle. 
  • Recycle the plastic, glass, and paper you use. 
  • Try composting your garbage. 
  • Plant an organic garden and grow your own food
  • Use environmentally friendly cleaning products. 
  • Organize a neighborhood clean-up. 

If we all focus on making changes together, our contributions add up and help preserve a healthy planet. When we practice yoga, we’re renewing our own spirits and creating more peace and well-being within ourselves. If we’re all feeling healthier, our world will benefit from our positive energy. Check out this week’s classes, each with a specific theme dedicated to Mother Earth. Happy Earth Day 2022 from YogaDownload
