Yoga Is For Me
Being poor is stressful, I know from first hand experience, because when I graduated from high school in 1979 my family and I were still living in a house with no indoor plumbing. Stressful, painful and embarrassing, but that was my physical birth world, not my spiritual world.
As you are reading this, right now, there are children in our communities living in a cocoon of fear and stress, impacting their physical and mental health. According to a recent study, poor children experience high levels of stress because amongst other reasons, they live in violent neighborhoods, walk across many busy vehicular intersections, move residences twice as often and get evicted five times as often as the average American, and are more likely to be bullied in school. While these children are in this physical place, this cocoon, we can help them start a transformation from the inside so they can emerge into a world of hope and possibilities.
Eleven years ago, I discovered the benefits of a regular yoga practice along my journey to a more harmonious life. With your help, I am sharing this proven 5,000-year old ancient practice with children and families in our deserving communities. At The WELLness Network, Inc. is bringing the yoga room to family members of all ages, from one to 92. Free classes are offered in community rooms in public housing developments, community centers, local libraries and at after school programs.
I often wonder what could I have achieved if I had understood, at an early age, that my circumstances did not define me. What if I had understood connecting to inner resources would bring me closer to the predestined accomplishments orchestrated by the Creator of the Universe.
Our Motto “Yoga Lifts All Minds” is supported by the proven science that a regular yoga practice improves the body, mind and spirit. Research has shown that yoga gives individuals a clear understanding of the connection between the mind, body and spirit, resulting in greater self-worth and healthier outcomes.
If you have a body, Yoga is for You. If you breathe, Yoga is for You. If you think, Yoga is for You.
