Sprout Yoga: How You Can Help Our Mission

In Uncategorized on May 11, 2009 at 2:34 am

Sprout Yoga’s mission is to create and support a national network of yoga teachers and licensed counselors who understand how yoga can play a role in healing from eating disorders. As a part of this mission, Sprout Yoga seeks to train, advocate, inspire and coordinate yoga teachers across the country on community yoga and the vital need for non-fee based yoga classes. Sprout Yoga believes that this kind of karma yoga benefits not only the community, but the teachers themselves. Sprout Yoga also seeks to work with the mental health community to create greater understanding about what role yoga can play in healing disorders with dissociative aspects, such as eating disorders and post traumatic stress disorder. Sprout Yoga’s mission is also to create a bridge between the valuable research and education already in existence in the mental health community and yoga teachers.

We achieve this mission, as my young friend Faith says, “the same way you eat an elephant, one bite at a time.” We have several outreach projects currently underway, but hampered by the costs of printing and mailing. You can help Sprout Yoga by showing your support and donating to our cause through our homepage at www.sproutyoga.org.

  1. I LOVE YOUR MISSION and would love to help spread the seeds of Sprout! I am starting a yoga studio in Nashville, TN this month, and would love to bring some of your philosophy into the studio. I am in recovery and am passionate about with women in recovery to cultivate a healthy relationship to their bodies and life.
    My email is waller@createradiance.com
    Thanks for all you are doing to spread yoga!

  2. Great post! The benefits of yoga are still unknown to many people. Different types of yoga have different effect on our health. However, it is important to understand the yoga basics so that the practitioner can perform the asanas perfectly and experience the benefits of yoga.
