Although yoga has been a part of my life for the past 17 years, only in the past 5 have I become a more serious student. Yoga has helped me find a community, strength and flexibility (of body and mind), and a breathing space during difficult times.
I am excited and humbled to participate in this four hour 'yoga-thon' to help support Boston Children's Hospital's Wellness Program and Every Child Fund. Your donations, no matter the amount, will help bring peace to families facing the pain and uncertainty of caring for a sick child, and joy to children fighting unimaginable battles.
The Wellness Program was designed to help patient families cope with the stress that comes with having a child endure ongoing treatments or long stays in the hospital. The program provides a sanctuary for parents and family, giving them a place to unwind and offering healing support. The program offers massage, yoga, Reiki and meditation to parents, siblings and family members so they can be their best for their sick child.
