There are so many first generation Integral Yogis doing wonderful service all over the globe. For example, this week, Rev. Jivana Heyman (Accessible Yoga founder) was named by Yoga Journal as one of 10 leaders in Yoga service. Now, second generation kids are all grown up and making their mark too! They either grew up in Yogaville, went to the Integral Yoga school and/or camp, spent lots of time with Swami Satchidananda because their parents were students, or some combination of these. Here are a few examples: Uma Outka–a professor of law who works in energy and environmental law received the Sustainability Leadership Faculty Award for her advocacy work); Sofia Hublitz–just featured in this magazine for her breakout role in the Netflix hit “Ozark,” that also stars Jason Bateman & Laura Linney); Atman Binstock–virtual reality pioneer Oculus’ chief architect; Sam Wick–design lead for the Adobe Brand Design team; Marielle Heller–award-winning director who next directs Tom Hanks in “You Are My Friend.” And, just this past week, T.K. Pillan—co-founder of the hugely popular Veggie Grill, a vegan chain in California—was featured in the Los Angeles Times. Swami Satchidananda had attended his graduation from MIT! Congrats to all of them and to all the Integral Yoga sangha members who are shining examples of Yoga in action!
