|With Jasmine at this year's yoga retreat|
If I lived in San Francisco, however, I would go to Laughing Lotus - a studio co-founded by Jasmine, the teacher at the yoga retreat. (They also have a studio in New York.) The Laughing Lotus philosophy of conscious living includes veganism - after all, how can you live at peace with the world while still contributing to the horrors of the farming industry? (They don't require anything diet-wise of their students, but teachers in training must take steps towards veganism.)
Laughing Lotus is raising money on kickstarter to build an "urban oasis", adding onto their studio with a vegan cafe and parklet. After hearing Jasmine describe the community it will enhance, I'm much more determined to plan a trip to San Francisco in the near future!
If you have an interest in yoga, veganism, and/or San Francisco, please watch their video and consider donating to their campaign. The project needs to be fully pledged by January 1st in order to be funded.
Note: I am not affiliated in any way with the Laughing Lotus or their kickstarter project; I'm merely spreading the word about a project I believe in and people I care about.
