Let’s celebrate SWY Teacher @Desiryasa!⠀ ⠀ Desirae teaches at the Edmondson Pike Library at 6 PM on Tuesday evening. This class is free and open to the public! We are grateful for Desirae and all of our SWY teachers that make free yoga available at libraries and community centers in Nashville. ⠀ ⠀ We asked her what her favorite part of teaching this class is, and this is what she said.⠀ ⠀ “This class brings me so much joy! My students come from a wonderfully diverse set of backgrounds – we have regulars whose country of origin is South Africa, Venezuela, Taiwan, Mexico, and many more. We have both male and female students, as well as a huge variety of ages and races represented in class every single week. My absolute favorite aspect of the class is not just who is there, but how they have come together – students connect with each other and with me! They know and care about what is going on each other’s and my life, and that connection is pure gold. I’m proud to have been able to foster an environment that both challenges students and leaves space for them to be where they are today. Truly, these students give me a greater gift than I imagine I can possibly be giving them. I am endlessly grateful for the opportunity to lead them!”
