KARMA YOGA: Make a Difference in Peoples' Lives & Your Own

Karma Yoga is the “yoga of action” with the intention of liberation from the results of our actions through self-transcending service and dedication to something greater than ourselves.

Save ST. VINCENT’S HOSPITAL in Greenwich Village
This is the hospital that my mom WALKED to while in labor to give birth to me and wrapped up my fractured wrist at ten years old! St. Vincent’s has been and still is an essential part of the downtown community and can use our help. PLEASE visit the link below to find out how to spend a few moments of practicing Karma Yoga – giving back to the community.

Support HAITI in its recovery and rebirth
I am honored to share the amazing story of a lovely and dedicated yoga student B.J. Adler’s son. Walter offered the gift of 12 days and endless energy in the immediate relief efforts in Haiti as an FDNY EMT. B.J. has been a yogi for decades and it shows on and off the mat, and now in supporting her son’s generous work in Haiti. Let Walter’s story touch and inspire you, reading it through B.J.’s voice.
