When we know we get to serve, and give of our time, the heartbeat quickens and the flutter in the belly of excitement coincides! It’s exciting to anticipate if the YG skills will actually work…what type of kids will I get to see…is the 4 types real? This is when the mind kicks in to overdrive and the doubt comes. This is when knowing there are over 700 volunteer teachers who know exactly what this feels like perhaps eases the mind chatter if only for a moment. This is when you reach out to community. You joined a movement when you said yes to spending 2.5 days with the Yoga Gangster badass trainers, Terri Cooper and Jodi Weiner. You said yes…you said yes…just keep telling yourself that as you drive up to the center…you said yes to volunteering…as you unload the mats from your car…you said yes as administration looks at you a little off beat wondering who and what you are bringing…YOU said yes to eye contact with each student as they walk in, perhaps drag themselves to the center, head hung down, energy heavy. YOU SAID yes to each one of them as they run around the room getting ready to push back and get your attention. It was YES to the challenge, YES to the kids who need resources, to kids who need space to be heard, valued and to just BE…YOU SAID YES….
…thank you to all the LOVED YG graduates for rockin’ the best version, for being fearless and authentically YOU!
Haven’t joined the movement yet? If you still the mind long enough, you just may hear the call…you may just hear that YES.
We are ready for you!
