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 at their service to Living Yoga. First up, Paul Cheek!
Here is what he says about his service to Living Yoga:
"I teach at the Columbia River Correctional Institute in the true spirit of Yoga. The goals of Yoga are to still the fluctuations of the mind, to discover our true nature, and to move from a selfish state to a selfless state. I teach these concepts in such a way that the students can experience the mental, emotional, spiritual, and physiological impact through the many practices of Yoga. The practices of Yoga can then empower them to make a difference in their own lives and in the lives of others. My goal is to teach them how to practice, to provide them with a well-grounded understanding of the philosophy of Yoga and to help them develop their characters so that when they leave the Institute they have more tools to help guide them in living a purposeful and meaningful life."
