Bodhisattva Road Yoga

 Yoga means connection. Yoga is the practice of self study.

 

Our purpose is to do the right thing by people, animals, insects, planet Earth, our oceans and rivers for a healthier world.

Here is a summary of most of things that come to mind that we do daily, weekly and yearly.

Our electricity is generated from Solar panels, we are grid tied and generate power which we feed back into the grid.

Waste Management. We are careful with our creation of waste. Buying power is key here. Buy in cloth bags, reduce the plastic packaging.. Reuse items multiple times dont throw away, repurpose if possible. Buy secondhand products- clothes, yoga blankets, books for example. All our food waste is composted on site. Because we are located on a 100 acre plus  bush site, we also collect firewood from a renewable source on our property or nearby.

We eat a Plant based diet. We are climate change aware and eat food that has low carbon emissions. I arent perfect at this, but 95% of the time this is our households diet.

Travel - We are very thoughtful about long distance air travel. The question being is this good for the planet? We don't travel locally unnecessarily. We make sure we have our car in tip top shape and review each year what is best practice regarding use of petrol based vehicles.

We grow alot of own vegetables from seed if possible, we don't use chemical sprays.

We support companies who also demonstrate earth stewardship. For example our toilet paper is from Smartass which is tree free.

We conduct energy audits. For example we only use rain water. So this summer have conserved water and repurposed our grey water for drought stricken plants in the garden. Cutting down power and water usage.

We encourage car pooling to our classes. Reduces carbon emissions.

We discourage the use of single use products like take out coffee cups, plastic bags and use environmentally safe cleaning products.

We share abundant produce from our garden and lives where possible and in turn our lovely community does the same with us.

We build community. Non violent, healthy and a free thinking community. I personally share products and actions that are making a difference on Youtube for the environment.


To achieve this, we have begun measuring our impact in the areas of carbon emissions, Sustainable consuming, Environmental Footprint, Social Advocacy, Circularity and Giving Back – we are using this information to drive continuous improvement and refine the way we do things.
