LIVING YOGA
I’ve been volunteering with this non-profit organization since 2010 and on staff as a Teacher Trainer since 2011 helping to educate, prepare and support our volunteer yoga teachers. The mission statement: Fostering healing and resilience through trauma-informed yoga. We offer classes in prisons, alcohol and drug recovery centers, shelters, community health clinics, and more for both adult and youth populations.

It is full of inspirational and educational stories, essays, poetry, interviews and photography. I cry, I laugh, I learn.  Every time. And best of all, it is free of advertising, existing solely on reader support.
