For years I have dreamt of teaching Yoga to people with developmental disabilities, young or old they just had to have challenges.
Yesterday I sat at the front of my very first Yoga class for young adults with developmental disabilities. As the teacher looking out to the eager group of individuals I was overcome with so many emotions; gratitude for the opportunity, pride, love, peace, hope and complete and utter awe.
What an absolutely amazing space to be in where there was no ego. Not a bit of competition, judgement or comparison.
As I left the center where the class was held, I was shaken by the purity in which these young people live each and every moment.
What if the whole world lived in a place without and ego, without the need to judge, compete or compare?
My hope is that I can cherish that sacred space in my heart knowing that not only a dream for me came true, but I went away with a much deeper sense of purpose and gratitude.
