I learned that oxygen recycles and that I should eat veggies. I also learned how to do “Darth Vader breath”, which is fun.

Mothers at Bethany House tend to carry heavy hearts around. Their lives are in turmoil and many are exhausted emotionally and physically. I like that I can share small techniques that can boost their self esteem and lighten their hearts.

Mom has lived at St. Paul Village for the past three years. I retired recently and am able to spend more time with her; we’re always looking for new things to do. As soon as we heard that Project Yoga was coming to St. Paul’s, Mom and I decided to make the class a part of every Thursday we spend together.

It teaches me more on how to stretch and condition my body. It gives me energy. I like that there’s no pushing or competition with the other participants.
