You may have heard that I am participating in yet another year of Yoga Reaches Out New England and I can't tell you how excited that I am. Last year was a truly exceptional experience for me, being that I had an infant and was still breast feeding... I'm pretty sure it was the longest I was away from him save a work trip I had been on... but the difference is that it was a day for me to connect with myself doing something that I truly enjoy, practicing yoga with like-minded yogis!
As you may already know, the day isn't just about practicing yoga but it's about giving back and helping organizations that are more than worthy. The mission of Yoga Reaches Out is to create seva (selfless service) by raising funds for organizations that impact the health, education, and well-being of children. This year the funds raised are going toward the Wellness Program at Boston Children's Hospital, an organization that has done amazing things for the Kids of New England. To even stop and think about sick kids and their needs, I could start tearing up, because, well, I'm an ol' mushball now.
