Welcome to the Street Yoga blog segment called GratiTUBE. Here we feature videos from Vimeo, YouTube and other various sites to inform and inspire through the medium of film. Selections take a look into the act of yoga service, advocacy, the non-profit sector, teachings, techniques, movements and events, just to name a few. We hope each video will remind us of our eternal gratitude, encourage compassion and uplift us with inspirations.

GratiTUBE Call to Action: Share these videos with your friends, family or networks to continue the act of gratitude through the tube.

This edition features Off The Mat Co-Founder Seane Corn & Street Yoga’s Mark Lilly discussing Yoga, Mindfulness & Service Summit – Part 1 & Part 2 (2009). This week the Yoga Service Council joined together for their 4th Annual Gathering,

Today marks the beginning of the Inaugural Yoga Service Conference in Rhinebeck, NY, hosted by the OMEGA Institute. As yoga, mindfulness and meditation continue to demonstrate the capacity to heal, inspire, reduce stress and improve health in widely diverse settings, the yoga community has come together to support the work of expanding access to these transformational practices.

The Yoga Service Council was formed in 2009 at the Omega Institute by a group of organizations bringing yoga to underserved populations. As we worked to support each other, exchange ideas and envision the future, a collaboration was sparked that has made all of our efforts stronger and more intentional.

The mission of the YSC is to support individuals and organizations to best serve and empower their communities through yoga and mindfulness.
