No, not like that. No boomerangs here.
This is the type of yoga you practice to benefit others. You go, you give, you flow and you practice giving good karma to the world. There's serva yoga too, where teachers offer classes free of charge to students. This allows students who otherwise wouldn't be able to take a yoga class to participate and experience it.
This past weekend, my sister was in town and we met up with some of my Dallas yogi friends to participate in One Love Dallas. It's a big yoga fundraising event to support women and girls who are victims of sex trafficking. It would disgust you to know how prevalent this is not only in other countries, but right here in the United States, too.
We rolled out our mats at the AT&T Performing Arts Center lawn and did 108 sun salutations. Ok, I only did about 60 of them, but there were some bada$$ yogis there who did the whole shebang!
They lined up some great sponsors and had some great event schwag. In fact, Athleta was there and since I was wearing an Athleta shirt, I got a free yoga mat. Score!
The giveaways aren't as important as the mission of the event. And the mission of the event isn't even as important as the fundamentals behind karma yoga: To go out into the world and do good. Expect nothing in return. Be the person to everyone else YOU would want to interact with daily. Do good things because it feels good to do them.
