I am inspired by individuals who want to be of service and make this world a better place. I met 26 of them this weekend at our URY training!
Colleen Mooney talked to us about neighborhood empowerment, Bea Yorker on ACE (Adverse Childhood Experience) and D'Lita Miller about human trafficking. Betsy Ha talked about secondary trauma and meditation, and the indomitable De Jur talked to us about yoga therapy and self care.
The URY teachers infused their wisdom into the discussions about posture sequences and how to teach a trauma sensitive yoga class. We role played teaching scenarios with rewards of chocolate bars for the most...ahem..."enthusiastic" students. And I was so pleased to have our newest teachers, Rubi and Ursula, share their insights and passion (thank you Lady Yoga!)
This training was packed with insightful information and new material, growing with depth and meaning. Through all of the weighty discussions and exchanges, I felt a yogic spirit of curiosity and deep compassion permeate the room.
I learned so much from each of our trainees, and I hope they were as enriched by the experience as I was. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Namaste.
