Yesterday's class was with youth from Girl Power Rocks, in conjunction with the lovely Naya from Yoga Gangsters. ~5 students.
''Yoga Gangsters empowers youth by addressing the symptoms of trauma and poverty such as limited education, addiction, violence, incarceration, teen pregnancy, HIV, and more through the practice of yoga.'' www.yogagangsters.org
Last year, Yoga Gangsters came to Philadelphia to do a trauma-informed outreach certification. It was a super inspiring training, and I was thrilled to be able to link up with them during my stay in Miami, and join in one of their already existing programs on my last day of tour.
The next Yoga Gangsters training in the Philadelphia area is in September 2014; I recommend signing up! Whether you are a yoga teacher or not, it is very good knowledge and super inspiring.
Thank you to Terri Cooper, Todd Space, Jodi Weiner, Claire Santos, Naya, Connie, and Linda for all of your help in my stay in Miami!
