Yoga to Detox and Experience Plant Based Empowerment

Considering a vegan lifestyle is becoming more common these days. People are seeking information on veganism, and often don’t know where to start. The Seed strives to empower people to learn more about a plant based lifestyle and enjoy the benefits of making more vegan choices. One practice that many Americans embrace is yoga, which has long been rooted in a foundation of ethics. Living in a non-harmful and non-violent manner is central to the philosophy of yoga, and many yogis teach veganism in their methods.

To promote a plant based lifestyle and the practice of yoga, The Seed teamed up with local yoga studios to bring New Yorkers yoga in a beautiful space promoting the vegan lifestyle. On December 3-6, 2012, Yoga Week was held in a contemporary SoHo Penthouse rooftop. Guests enjoyed classes taught by talented and passionate teachers from Jivamukti Yoga, ISHTA Yoga, Sonic Yoga, and Pure Shakti Yoga.

After yoga class, guests sipped on organic cold-pressed juice from Juice Press, and delicious vegan food samples. All attendees received a goodie bag full of vegan snacks from Liz Lovely, Yoga Earth, GoMacro, Raw Revolution, Justin’s Nut Butter, Purely Elizabeth, Primal Spirit Foods, The Kale Factory, and Kopali Organics.

Raffle winners received prizes from Jivamukti Yoga, ISHTA Yoga, Pure Shakti Yoga, Sonic Yoga, Vega, Whole Foods Market Wellness Club, and Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine that enabled guests to further their yoga practice and learn more about a plant based lifestyle.

The Seed extends additional thanks to partners and sponsors of Yoga Week.
