Earth music

December 29, 2019

“The didge for me, regardless of who is playing it, brings instant waves of nostalgia that are attached like an umbilical cord to some deep rooted memory of heart beat and womb.” (Seth McCaslin)

And a deep rooted memory of belonging to the earth. Didge music is earth music. A celebration of the planet’s heart beat. An appreciation of our collective breath.

YogaWorks teachers union

December 10, 2019

In November 2019, mindful movement educators at YogaWorks NYC voted in favor of the first ever labor union in their field.

Our union election was the result of 9 months organizing and community building, through which we grew and found new friends. Our process has been documented @unionize_yoga on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. Here you can also find links to press coverage and podcasts.

We are currently forming our bargaining committee as we get ready to move into the second stage of unionizing: negotiating over our union contract for a more sustainable profession, transparent communication, benefits, and having a voice within the industry.

Thank you for your support!
