Larry Gray posits an interesting question in his vlog, creating space to discuss how we convey the idea of "going green" in ASL.
This particular vlog inquires about the sign, GREEN, which is generally understood for the color. However, we have used it to also mean being environmentally-conscious. I pose a question which I'm sure the Deaf community would like to discuss.
OFFER stuff thats been sitting in your attic for too many years. Post a WANTED ad for materials that you need for your art project. RECEIVE or TAKE stuff off other people's hands. Keep trash out of landfills, free up space in your storage area, and save $$. It doesn't get better than FREECYCLE. Check their website for freecycle listservs in your area. www.freecycle.org
For those who live in or near the NYC area and are interested in Iyengar yoga, there are several Yoga classes offered in ASL. Jen Kagan, a certified Iyengar teacher, who teaches in ASL explains about the method that she teaches: "We learn most through visual access therefore all poses and actions are demonstrated and sequenced in such a way that students gain better understanding of themselves."
YOGA CLASSES are offered on: Mondays 6-7:15 @ Three Jewels, Union Square
Wed 6-7:30 @ La Guardia Community College
There are some video descriptions of yoga and recent photos of ASL Yoga Retreat on her website (Click on the Yoga in ASL links). Thanks to Jen Kagan for informing EcoDeaf about this!
