It’s totally f*%ked here. But, yoga works even in hell!!
Working with suffering refugees. Everybody deserves to care for their bodies and realize their true self. Yoga is so simple. It’s so simple. Even in the midst of complete disorganization, we spend time bonding, being healthy, and having fun.
I am working rescue 7 days a week, 12 hours from midnight to morning, then teaching free yoga classes during the day, Monday through Saturday. Boston and Greece strong!!!
I don’t get paid and I am working harder than ever in my life. I’m also teaching 100 refugee children school stuff, then on another day teaching adults at a Greek secondary school. Greece right now is a different planet. There is no clock here. It’s an extreme situation. Misery is everywhere. Desperate people wash up on shore and disperse, difficulties continue. But, yoga heals.
