This incredible picture below is of my student at juvenile hall. She contacted me recently to say that she has been doing yoga every day since she got out & wants to become a yoga teacher! I'm amazed that I can certify & mentor her and then pay her to teach at any of our community classes we offer - in places that don't have yoga. What a gift yoga has offered me..I was in this same Juvi when I was a kid. Unbelievable healing I had to share!
Hopefully she will be coming to the UpRising Yoga Trauma Informed Yoga Training:
