“Just taught my first diverse abilities yoga class to a six year old girl on the Autism spectrum that communicates through sign language. Wow, that was completely humbling! I am now hooked on wanting to teach her more! Her caregiver said that the class she attended with me was more than she had ever done and that her listening skills where better than they have ever seen! Thank you for this gift!!!”
