Karma Yoga Journeys and Yoga.com announce their premier yoga vacation to Thailand.

Karma Yoga is selfless service for humanity. It is the yoga of action, which purifies the heart. This three week journey, offered by Yoga.com in October of 2006, gives participants an opportunity to volunteer in an orphanage for boys in Northeastern Thailand in Udon Thani. The group will perform repairs on the orphanage home as well as playing, doing art, making music and doing yoga with the children. Some of these boys were found in the garbage, dumped because nobody wanted to take care of them. Others come from families that are too poor to support them. Many of the parents have died of AIDs, leaving the children behind. Not only were the children stigmatized by the disease, but their long illness often consumed all family savings, leaving the boys starving.

In addition to helping the boys, the participants have a daily yoga class led by a certified yoga teacher of Iyengar style yoga who also serves as the group leader. Everyday the participants can look forward to Thai vegetarian meals, relaxation at the resort on the Meakong River and a group sharing time at the end of the day. Prior experience doing yoga or volunteering with children isn’t required.

The participants will feature various exciting side trips. These include a visit to an archeological site, a handicraft center specializing in weaving, and a forest monastery. The group will journey to a historical park that contains pre-historic cave paintings, Lopburi Bodhisattvas, Lang Chan Buddha image and a stupa that shelters a Buddha footprint. At the end of the trip the participants will cross the border to Laos for an overnight stay where they will see Buddhist temples and shop in local markets.

Additional Karma Yoga Journeys are being planned to other exotic international locations doing more humanitarian projects in a unique mixture of volunteering, yoga, and exploration. Mahatma Gandhi, who exemplified the practice of karma yoga, said “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”

“Yoga.com is offering the opportunity for individuals to experience self-giving through giving to others, changing lives one person at a time.”
