At InYoga, we are committed to giving back to the community and supporting people in need through our events and workshops.
The modern Western approach of "every man for himself" doesn't ring true if we want to live a yogic life. The ancient yogic text, The Bhagavad-Gita, teaches that karma yoga (sometimes referred to as seva, or service) is like the fast lane to spiritual fulfilment and enlightenment. In a practical sense, being of service to others can be the key to satisfaction and growth, and can help us to develop our muscles of compassion and contentment.
This month we're inspired by Edo and Jo, devoted singer-songwriters and kirtan artists, who have spent the past five years volunteering in a range of different humanitarian service projects in India, Asia and Australia. With a love of music and yoga, their brand new charitable organisation, A Sound Life, was created to support and expand the projects they are passionate about.
A Sound Life connects the underprivileged, disabled and the sick with the extraordinary powers of music and yoga to educate, inspire, heal and empower. They offer four main programs that reach out to different areas of the community - sending musicians and yoga teachers to inspire and heal the sick or the elderly; supplying musicians and musical instruments to schools and orphanages in underprivileged areas; creating educational and inspirational music CDs; and raising money to provide infrastructure and amenities to improve living conditions in orphanages in India and Bali.
We are pleased to be supporting A Sound Life through collaborative events with Edo and Jo this November. If you'd like to find out more about this charity, or volunteer, or donate, go to A Sound Life's website. We're sure that your generosity will be welcomed with open arms!
