April is National Volunteer Month, and since we have 200 ACTIVE volunteers, this is an exciting month for us! In celebration, we are highlighting our volunteers and humbly bow to their service to Living Yoga.
Next up, Barb Stroud! Barb Stroud has been volunteering with Living Yoga for about three years and is currently teaching at Multnomah County Assessment & Evaluation, a short term residential program for teen girls. Her thoughts on volunteering with Living Yoga:
"When a friend of mine was incarcerated about 5 years ago, I felt a need to do something. I'd heard of Living Yoga through one of my yoga instructors and then found out that Living Yoga volunteers taught yoga to people in rehab or prisons. As I'd never taught before, the idea of "sharing" my practice allowed me to feel more comfortable with the role. After practicing for some 30 years, I am now a volunteer teacher and it is wonderful to observe how yoga can make a difference in people's lives."
Barb, on behalf of all of us at Living Yoga, THANK YOU for your service. You are a delight to work with!
