Over the past year I’ve been teaching chair yoga for the Philly School District, through a grant for the early childhood education Headstart Program. It has taken me into the communities of Southwest Philly to North Philly. The classes are sweet, as a teacher often challenging, some days, like today, no one shows. This work is some of the most rewarding work I’ve done. I believe in the possibilities of greatness, and that even a little bit of this practice can shelter you from great sorrow.
