Yoga Meets Political Action

  • 1 of 2

While on the scene in Charlotte at the Democratic National Convention in September, I was able to catch an interview with (my shero) yogini and sacred activist Seane Corn. We met up at the Oasis that Off The Mat created there in partnership with The Huffington Post.

It was truly an oasis, a sanctuary even. They provided a respite from the hustle and bustle of the Convention, by offering yoga, meditation, massages, healthy food and beverages, and an all around tranquil vibe to media and delegates alike. Watch here:

She talked to me about a current campaign by Off the Mat into the World. OTM’s mission is to use the power of yoga to inspire conscious, sustainable activism and ignite grassroots social change. The campaign is Yoga Votes.

YogaVotes is where yoga meets political action. Listen to Seane explain it on the next page.
