“I have taught women in recovery at @thistlefarms and @mendingheartsinc hearts for the past three years. When working with that population, there are some colorful stories. I could tell you about the time I showed up to teach and there was a woman with one leg and forgot her prosthesis. I can see forgetting your phone or keys…but how you forget your leg? Or the other student who showed wearing a dress and a thong! One particularly memorable moment is a student who never touched the mat. There was a woman in particular at Thistle Farms that never got off the sofa and never said a word. One day she wasn’t there, but at the end of the practice came hurrying in dressed up nicely. Beaming she told me,’I have been at court to see the judge and did what you taught me.’ I was totally perplexed. She told me how she had done a breathing exercise to calm down and talk to the judge in family court. She was so excited…she got her kids back! Being able to apply what we learn to help us find our path off the mat is the true meaning of yoga which I have been so blessed to share through Small World.” – Sara Bradley@surfnsara4410, SWY Teacher We are grateful for #Women like Sara and stories like this ❤️ In addition to being a SWY yoga teacher, Sara is an artist whose (amazing!) work can be found at @eioandthehive, and she is a SUP instructor at @nashvillepaddle. #SmallWorldYoga #SWY #SWYTeacher #YogaTeacher #YogaforRecovery #YogaTherapy #YogaForAll #breathe #ThistleFarms #MendingHearts #NashvilleYoga #Nashvillefit #MusicCityFit #MusicCity #NashvillePaddleCo #SUPTeacher #WomensMonth #Women
