FARM TO YOGA

Collaboration with farmers does not end at the yoga studio. My yoga community now joins me on the farm. Farm to Yoga is a model I developed with friends at Growing Heart Farm over the past five years. Throughout the growing season, we host Farm to Yoga dinners where dozens of yogis congregate at the farm for a glorious gathering. The day before the gathering, our chef and I tour the farm to design the menu based on produce so ripe it cannot even wait for the farmers’ market or CSA box. The day of the gathering begins with another farm tour; yogis experience the field by seeing, touching, smelling, and tasting the vegetables straight from the source. The walk through the fields is always a way to come back down to earth and reexperience the profound and simple truth: Food comes from the ground!

This opening sets the stage for a deep yoga practice, literally grounding. We gather in our outdoor yoga classroom among the grass, trees, and big sky. After yoga, we return to the field, where our dinner table is set, overlooking the rows of squash, heirloom tomatoes, and basil. While experiencing the delicious and mindful creation of our chef and farmers, the overwhelming feeling is one of interconnectedness. At this point, everyone has touched the plants that are nourishing them and shaken hands with (or hugged) the farmer who tended those plants, while surrounded by their kula, their community who treks the humble human path, seeking balance together. Here, we remember who we are at our essence.
