The Earth Citizens Organization (ECO) is a nonprofit organization that works to promote mindful living, natural health and world sustainability. Their goal is to create a network of 100 million Earth Citizens by 2020. This event is happening at various gatherings all over the country and is open to all who consider themselves citizens of the Earth.

Body and Brain Yoga & Tai Chi Center is part of a national brand leader in holistic health and wellness. They combine Eastern Asian healing and energy philosophies, including yoga, tai chi, detox, rhythmic movement and meditation.

All are welcome to join in unity to acknowledge the Earth as a central value to our existence, practice mindful living and seek personal growth through realizing one’s inner value.

The event begins at 1 p.m. with an introduction and demonstration followed at 1:20 p.m. with an Earth Citizen Greeting.

ECO’s vision is to redirect the world's future towards harmony and sustainability.

To support this goal, ECO focuses on providing educational resources, developing learning facilities and organizing green community initiatives.
