# Practice Get It Going

Woody Allen said that "Ninety percent of life is just showing up". Have you ever had those moments when you didn't want to practice, but once you got to class you were so thankful you peeled yourself off your sofa? A little momentum goes a long way. Sometimes transformation can seem impossible for lethargy or the rigidity can trip us up. Just by taking a few baby steps out of our comfort zone and creating movement in a positive direction, we can begin to see that we don't have to get it right, we just have to get going...

My Manduka helps me #practice showing up. How does your Manduka help you to show up and get it going?

Here's some inspiration on how others show up for themselves and our planet:

Angel Robbins Stambaugh:
" I recycle as much as I can, use reusable bags most of the time, re-use paper and plastic bags that I get, and when the weather is nicer, I plan on taking "garbage pick-up walks" to pick up some of the garbage I see when I walk with my dog."

Jonathan Gerard:
" I've been trying to use the bus system for the past 4 years instead of driving a car. Half the time i don't even make the bus schedule, so i end up walking everywhere hahahhha."

Gailanne Joachim:
" I take public transit to work regularly. I also participate in activities that foster appreciation of nature such as trail running/hiking, cycling, and yoga. I continually strive to keep updated on the news of the world and become aware of how the events of the world affect the environment."

Erin Finegold:
" I recycle like a champ! And, reduce my carbon footprint in several ways, care about water and conserve, purchase reconstituted garments, eat from the gardens, plant trees, compost, live my yoga and meditate; better me, better world."

Robyn Linn Weinstein:
" Running on the beach at least three times a week, I always see garbage... it's terrible when the birds try to eat it, thinking it's food. I always pick up garbage on the beach and hope to inspire others to do so, as well."

Carrie Ng:
" I try to find second uses for everything. Excess water can be used for watering plants rather than pouring it down the drain, coffee grinds can be used in the garden, vegetable peels can be used for veggie stock and treats for my dog. It can get creative to find another purpose(s) for items around the house."

Angeline Mels:
" I would reuse-reused whatever I can. My dad n I use used pet bottles, make holes on the cap, use it to sprinkle our small organic plants. Used cans for pots. We would catch the rainwater for other usage. I bring own grocery bag to shop.Turn off the screensaver on computer. Lately I shop less clothes n remodify old ones for new look, & donate the unused ones. Use the back of printed paper. I try not to use plastic straw or disposable chopstix anymore :) Small easydaily things."

I always tell myself "just go.. you can just lay there in child's pose," or "just do enough so you can warm up and stretch," but I always end up doing the whole class to my fullest potential!

I am constantly encouraging others to reduce, reuse, and recycle! I practice each of these daily by biking to work, using a reusable coffee mug, bringing my lunch in glass containers and recycling any paper that no longer has a use.
