Yoga means a lot to me. The practice has helped me learn about my body and mind and has shaped me into a kinder and more gentle person towards myself and others. But, it wasn't until participating in Yoga Reaches Out that my practice meant a lot to other people.
I don't personally have children, but the thought of any serious ailment befalling a child and the family stress that surrounds that is too much to bear. And if I can do something to alleviate that stress, through an activity that I'm already doing - it gives my practice deeper purpose.
Yoga Reaches Out has been raising funds for Boston Children's Hospital for 10 years! The funds raised go to support a wellness center within the hospital (and research and other things!). There, family members have another shoulder to cry on and access to wellness techniques that soothe their stress and give them agency in the child's care.
Each year, 1000+ yogis roll out their mats in celebration of their practice and their combined efforts to support Boston Children's Hospital. The day is electric, inspirational, and grounding. This year, for the second time, I'm honored (humbled and totally astounded) to be teaching a portion of the morning class as a New England Presenter.
