Ski season has already started in the Berkshires, after our first big snowfall last Friday. I love the idea of people being outside, enjoying the winter outdoors, but skiing, at least our modern industralized version, is one of the sports with the worst impact on the environment. I’ve found a farm nearby that grooms trails for cross-country skiiing and plan to give it a try.
But even a quiet activity like yoga has impact–mostly because people drive and fly to do it. Here’s a modest way to make your asana practice more earth-friendly: The Eco-friendly Yoga Mat from Wai Lana Yoga.
