Search and Care

Search and Care

I recently volunteered to teach chair yoga at Search and Care on International Yoga Day. Search and Care  helps seniors live independently with quality of life and peace of mind for as long as safely feasible. They also act as a surrogate family to older people when they have none living in NYC.

I taught chair yoga to elderly folks in NYC who don’t have much of a community and are homebound. It’s hard for most of them to get out of their apartments and come to the center. I taught them simple, and enjoyable exercises that would help them rejuvenate their bodies and minds.

I was so impressed by those who showed up willing to breathe and stretch alongside each other.
Looking at Olga, who’s 90 years old, doing a baby tree pose at the end of class aside her wheelchair, and thought to myself this is truly what yoga is all about; and why I will continue to teach and practice for as long as I can.
