Keeping Warm with Chair Yoga | Wesley Mission
“If I’m still going to yoga classes at 81 years of age, know that it was you Heroes who inspired me.”
Our most dedicated students are not those who can do the headstands and splits. In fact, they’re the ones who show up with a smile every week, even if their arthritis is flaring up, even if it means catching the bus in the 5 degrees cold and nursing a frozen shoulder, a bunked knee, a toe injury, a sore back… you name it, we’ve heard it from this community of elderly people.
Teaching yoga and bringing the Gospel to this community of seniors is not about how “good” you can be. It’s learning about grace and courage. To others and to yourself.
To us, this is the richest reward. This warms our heart, mind, soul and body.
Oh, how much we love you brave souls and learn from you.
And of course, thank you always, Wesley Mission for providing us this safe space to serve, to share our stories and to grow.
