Months have gone by and now these women and their children have become a part of my life. And every week they give me something to smile about, a new story to share, and a new lesson to learn, while giving me a consistent dose of inspiration. It’s interesting to see the change that happens once the women start attending the yoga classes. From being a little tough, self-conscious, at times even half joking, they become soft, vulnerable, strong, and hopeful by the end of class”.
