Sophie has gone back to doing yoga with Limor, who teaches a special kind of yoga for children with special needs. She worked with Sophie for many years, and then we took a break as Sophie's seizures got out of hand, and we never knew if she'd have one or was sleeping one off. A couple of weeks ago, I decided that it was time, so Limor comes once a week and stretches with Sophie, helps her to breathe, sings to her and otherwise works her yoga magic.
If you want to hear more about Yoga for Special Needs and live in southern California, email me and I'll send you on to Limor.
P.S. I went back to yoga this morning, too, and not at the Y. I went to a Kundalini studio different than the one I used to frequent (the one where Russell Brand sort of took over) at the urging of my friend Nancy. It was fantastic. I feel as if a weight has been removed and something opened up. Thank you, Nancy. Thank you, dear body that allows me, still, to stretch and bend and breathe and smile.
