As we learned in an earlier post, Earth Day was founded only a few decades ago, though humans have been celebrating and giving gratitude to the Earth for centuries, all over the world. As a refresher, a former U.S. senator named Gaylord Nelson created the very first Earth Day in the United States on April 22, 1970. According to the Smithsonian, “On December 7, 1972, Apollo 17 astronauts captured a now-iconic image of Earth, sometimes called the “blue marble.” Our National Air and Space Museum explains how it became an inspiration and symbol for continuing Earth Day celebrations” (https://www.si.edu/spotlight/earth-day) – check out the link for more inspiring Earth day memorabilia. This month we’ll celebrate Earth Day celebrations around the world, and to kick it off, I’d like to share what yogi’s call the “Earth sequence,” or Prithvi Namaskara (https://druyoga.com/yoga-online/video/earth-sequence) – so don’t be shy, grab a mat, and try it out! You might be surprised by just how grounded you feel afterwards.
