Raise Awareness



Utilize your teaching, newsletters and email communication with your students to raise awareness.  Share with them the actions the studio is taking, and why it is important. Gentle awareness-raising is appropriate; for instance, a post about the yamas could use an environmental example for ahimsa.  You could remind people of their relationship, through their breath, with all the green life of Earth that cycles carbon dioxide and replenishes the oxygen we need to breathe. You could encourage them to take their practice out into nature, as described in the Personal Practice section, or share with them the Ten Breaths practice.
