A few years ago when I was in India, I had the funniest experience in a yoga class. I was sitting there in a hot room (not because it was “hot” yoga–just because it was extremely hot in India) and the instructor, dressed in everyday clothes–not her “yoga attire” was teaching us how to do Mrigi Mudra (a cleansing breathe exercise).
I want Greenpeace to inspire people of colour—especially women—to feel safe in taking action on issues that are important to them and empowered to reject inequality.

I love the cultural diversity.
