Have you wondered: “What does Veganism have to do with Yoga?” Or: “Why are so many people going Vegan?”  Have you ever thought: “Going Vegan would be great, but it sounds way too hard!” 

Join us for a 45-minute devotional Slow Flow Sun Salutation practice (beginner-friendly / all levels welcome), and brief guided meditation, followed by an open-ended, non-judgmental discussion of Veganism, Classical Yoga, and simple ways to incorporate both of these joyful practices into your daily life.

Missions Supported By This Event:

The mission of The Humane League (https://www.thehumaneleague.com/), why they exist, is to reduce animal suffering by inspiring change at all levels. This sense of purpose drives every action in our unrelenting march forward for animals.

350* (https://350.org/) is building a global grassroots climate movement that can hold our leaders accountable to the realities of science and the principles of justice. Today, 350.org works in almost every country in the world on campaigns like fighting coal power plants in India, stopping the Keystone XL pipeline in the U.S, and divesting public institutions everywhere from fossil fuels. All of our work leverages people power to dismantle the influence and infrastructure of the fossil fuel industry, and to develop people-centric solutions to the climate crisis.

Gwen-Murphy200Gwen Murphy has spent much of her adult life making sculpture and, with her husband, Peter, raising their two children, who are now adults themselves. She began practicing Yoga about ten years ago, and as that practice brought more and more benefits – peace of mind, comfort in the body, better sleep, relief from various ailments, & the releasing of destructive habits – she became committed to sharing it with others. She completed her 200 Hour Teacher Certification at Frog Pond Yoga Center in Princeton, Ma. With an emphasis on alignment and movement with breath, her classes center on the fundamentals of Classical Yoga, while allowing each participant to move at his or her own pace. Gwen is a long-time resident of West Acton, and enjoys raising chickens and attempting to train the family’s adorable “problem child,” a rescued labradoodle named Lamb Chop.
