...and yoga means union.
Earlier this year, a group of yoga studio owners met at All Life Is Yoga to discuss various ways for us to engage as a yoga community. One of the topics I brought up was my interest in increasing voter turnout for the upcoming local election. Atlanta will be voting for a new mayor, school board, and city council members. I would really love to see more people show up at polling stations this year, and I think that we, as yoga teachers and students, have a platform that can encourage voting. Our small effort during last year’s election resulted in over 60 people registering to vote. And that was just from a couple of newsletters!
I would love to hear your thoughts on this. I know some people do not like to mix their yogaand their politics. But my studio is called All Life is Yoga; for me, it's all yoga. Policy affects everything I care about.
I am hosting a gathering at the yoga studio to discuss ideas for increasing voter turnout. We'll have teachers and studio owners present, and I would love to have you there!
