You Call This Yoga (YCTY) has partnered with Meals On Wheels of Wake County (MOW) to provide a weekly “appetizer” of chair yoga before lunch at three Raleigh Friendship Cafes. This thrilling breakthrough of in-person classes began in January 2022. Current locations are the St. Saviour’s Center and the Five Points Center for Active Adults.
Everytime I hear someone utter those words “I’m not flexible, so I can’t practice yoga” I physically react, shake my head and utter “Yoga is for every BODY.”
Visualize yourself a traveler preparing for your dream trip. You’re seeking a place called Mokṣa (मोक्ष). This is a country like no other where all beings are well, all beings are free, and all beings have peace.
Teaching yoga through Zoom has allowed me the opportunity to share the love of the practice during the pandemic and to help yogis slow down and find their breath. Providing a class of moving through asanas, mindfulness, and savasana. I never imagined I would be sharing my practice online but here I am. And believe it or not – it is still wonderful. But let’s not kid ourselves, there is nothing better than a hands-on adjustment or assist during a practice. For this reason, I make it a priority to help those in class really feel the pose through cues or closing our eyes and noticing the feeling of the physical body during the practice.
