“Often in ​our society people with special needs are still considered the least of these. We are all created in God’s image​ and we are all ​created unique and special. ​ ​God is the potter and we are the clay. He made us all perfect having our own uniqueness. Some people have blue eyes, brown eyes, some people can do this, some people can do that, some people are right handed, some are left handed. We were all made for a purpose, all ​His​ masterpiece​s​. ​ In Adaptive Holy Yoga, ​the spiritual​ focus, physical movement and breath work ​are​​ all ​very ​healing​ and offer many benefits for this population​​. One of the main reason​s​ my heart is drawn to teaching Adaptive Holy Yoga classes is because I believe that everyone deserves a place to belong. ​ In typical yoga classes it is difficult for people with special needs to receive the supported instruction that they need to stay safe and be successful. Adaptive ​Holy Yoga classes offer​​ ​that additional support as well as wonderful social opportunities​. A time to come together with friends in community, ​ support​ing ​one another,​​​ laugh​ing​ and hav​ing​ fun​ together!”​
