Climate Crisis Resilience & Social Justice
One of the benefits of my daily practice of yoga & mindfulness (aside from reducing anxiety & deepening self-awareness) has been a deepening sense of connection with nature & the world around me. As Eckhart Tolle says, "allow nature to teach you stillness." I'm happiest rediscovering my natural calm in the woods! I also run workshops designed to deepen this connection.
My practice is has also led to a deepening understanding of the worsening Climate Crisis, & the inextricable links with social & racial injustice. Anxiety (among other emotions) is increasingly common as we come to terms with our uncertain future. My own experience has led me to have a special interest in this area.
I am actively working towards climate, social & racial justice in many ways, including supporting activists with the Compassionate Mindful Resilience Course. I offer reductions for those working actively for justice, equality & healing our planet - please get in touch.
I donate 5% of earnings from my yoga classes to Tree Sisters; a wonderful organisation who are committed to reforesting the Tropics. Reforestation, especially in tropical regions, is a highly effective way rebalancing carbon levels in the atmosphere & decreasing the rate of climate change. The organisation also supports the local communities where their projects take place, among many other useful projects. Breathe Calm Yoga students have already planted over 1000 trees!

50% of proceeds from my donation based mindfulness meditation group go to the charity Choose Love, who support refugees & put love into action around the world. For more info, visit https://choose.love/
