As most of you have read over the past week I have created a team (BTV Vegan Yogis
Team Ingalls-Fairweatherwithnew addition Marshall) to support the charity auction for Off The Mat. “Off the Mat Into the World uses the power of yoga to inspire conscious, sustainable activism and ignite grassroots social change. They do this by facilitating personal empowerment through leadership trainings, fostering community collaboration, and initiating local and global service projects.” To learn more check out my posts here and here.
