These are notes for a self defence course for the staff at Tacachale.
As I taught there last night I had a total calling, epiphany, brainstorm, whatever you want to label it.
I want to teach and help those who can't help themselves. I love teaching but there are so many out there with problems bigger than we can imagine.
These people with severe brain damage can't help their actions and when they come to chair yoga, most of them aren't even capable of movement but they respond to the energy in the room. The dim lights, my soothing voice, the lavender oils and the color lights we reflect on the wall. My only wish is that the staff tried to move them a little more BUT most of the staff participate and I know it is equally important for them to be there as it is a stressful job.
I want to help all but I'm shifting the priority of my ideal client.
My studio is open to all but my personal talent is geared toward those who may not be able to help themselves or are in crisis mode.
Simple things like an overhead stretch, a touch on the shoulder or just making eye contact with someone are enough to change their day.
Be grateful for what you have simply if you have a roof over your head and can walk and talk clearly.
Reach out to those who are less than you and give more than you receive.
I feel the earth moving and can't wait to see where it takes me next. #sanitygurus#findyourselfandlovewhatyoufind#tacachale#helpingothers#mentalhealth#mentalhealthawareness#addiction#alcoholawareness#yogaashealing#healing#healingishere#bestofgainesville#gcog#gcogmissions#missionary#jesus#loveall#smile#yoga#yogaenergy#wellness#wellnessforall#lessfortunate
