  • SXSW Yoga

    by Ari Stiles

    This is a “come as you are” session meant to accommodate mixed levels of experience with minimal need for special equipment or previous experience (read: no mats or yoga clothing required.) Special emphasis is placed on postures and practices to help those of us that sit at desks and use computers regularly. Much of what you learn here will help you build a home/work practice that is therapeutic and adjustable to your needs. Yoga was created thousands of years ago as a way to clear the mind in preparation for enlightenment. What better way to prepare for for the busy days of networking, information and fun at SXSW? See you there!

  • Radio-Free Yoga: Self-Realize x Social Enterprise

    by Diane Ferraro, Seane Corn, Jessica Durivage, Waylon Lewis and Vikram Gandhi

    No sticky mat necessary, though we'll address sticky situations arising from poor online social media manners and how to heighten our collective consciousness as upright citizens of the social media community through the lens of the yamas--the five universally ethical disciplines of yogic philosophy that govern how we interact with others. Transcending creed, country, age and time, these include non-violence, truth, non-stealing, continence, and non-coveting. We'll explore how online social media's far-reaching platform coupled with the implementation of the yamas breeds powerful potential for personal growth and philanthropic progress. No matter the model, the domain, or the product/mission/vision: the tipping point that will bring home humanity’s collective blue ribbon in advancing positive social change is perhaps best liberally paraphrased in the words of Krishna in the yogic text, the Bhagavad Gita: 'You have a voice and a purpose. For Pete’s sake, use them.' As online bodhisattvas-in-training minding our Ps and Qs and setting our integrated intentions toward information, news and POV dissemination, together we can, in the words of Gandhi, be the change we wish to see in the world. We'll share wellness tools to support you while you’re off saving the web wide world and explore the value added to both the person and the populace in bringing mindful media to the masses, one heartfelt hashtag at a time. Don’t worry, we won’t make you chant (well, maybe we will).

    At 11:00am to 12:00pm, Saturday 10th March
