The Bird's Nest is proud to host a FREE Yoga class through Yogis In Service. All are welcome.
This is an all levels class. There are basic poses, challenging poses and enough support for everyone to try, breathe, and learn. Some people use a chair and other people work on taking their practice to the next level. Yogis in Service (YIS) is a non-profit dedicated to bringing yoga to those who do not have access. We will bring the cognitive, emotional, and physical tools accessible through a regular yoga practice to others. We feel that lives can change with access to
the space between stimulus and response.
There is a growing need for a theoretical and empirically grounded approach to support effective and safe provision of yoga to potentially vulnerable populations. This framework can be utilized for yoga teachers working in high-risk locations and/or in yoga classes that may include vulnerable and trauma-exposed individuals. YIS believes that trauma is already associated with too much Cost. Healing should be Free.
Between stimulus and response there is a space.
In that space is our power to choose our response.
In our response lies our growth and our freedom.
