Christy Turlington, Russell Simmons among celebs using yoga to support U.N. peace day

Christy Turlington and Ziggy Marley are among a group of celebrities hoping to bring the benefits of yoga to the world.
Turlington, Marley, and Russell Simmons are participating in the Global Mala Project, an international effort that aims to use yoga-centered events to raise awareness and funds for global causes on the United Nations' International Day of Peace. Events will be held in 30 countries, including Israel, Africa, India, Australia and the United States, beginning Sept. 21.
"With so many people involved, the impact is going to be quite astounding as a collective consciousness," Turlington told The Associated Press. "There will be an energetic charge."
"Selfless service" is part of the yogic tradition, the 38-year-old supermodel said, "so if anyone can lead in this way, this is the group to start with."
Dozens of events will benefit charitable groups dedicated to fighting global warming and AIDS.
