Executive Director Rob Schware talks with outpatient therapist Paula Soto for The Huffington Post Blog on why it’s important make yoga more accessible to underserved communities.
“As a therapist, I know that therapy does work. But therapy is only one leg on the body-mind-spirit stool; for me, yoga has been the seat that holds it all together. I am motivated by the opportunity of bringing to others what literally saved my life. Something so essential should not be restricted to those on a socio-economic level who can afford it.”
