Yoga and Permaculture
The goal of yoga is to reconnect ourselves with our divinity. Permaculture reminds us to reconnect with the natural world, of which we are an inseparable part. In this module, we will demystify what permaculture is: explain the three core values and the 12 principles of permaculture; review the Vedic teachings which remind us of the need for reverence for nature; explore how we can apply the teachings of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras and express them through the practice of permaculture in our daily lives; and offer practical tools and strategies for living a more sustainable lifestyle.
