Practicing with Hinds’ Feet Farms

posted 05/3/16No comments

Hinds' Feet FarmFor the past 8 years I have had the privilege of working with the beautiful members of Hinds’ Feet Farms, a community that supports adults with traumatic and acquired brain injures. Twice a month, they travel to The Bindu to participate in a gentle chair yoga class, taught by  Sari Weston or me. Through my teaching, I get to share my passion for yoga with them; but what I receive back through love, laughter and smiles exponentially outweighs what I give.

Unique Yoga Classes

Many of the members suffer from chronic pain due to injuries, so the gentle mindful practice gives them coping skills to work through and manage pain. Each class offers a range of breath techniques, forward folds, standing and seated poses. Tree is a favorite pose and is especially important, as balance is affected when you have a brain injury. As with any students, including me, they all look forward to savasana!

Unique Students

Like any yoga class you attend, there are a variety of personalities and abilities in the class. Each member of Hinds’ Feet Farms brings forth their own unique gifts and appreciation for the yoga practice. After 8 years, this group of staff and members has carved out a special place in my heart. I look forward each week to hearing Eric speak to me as he imitates a true British gentleman, or Ally telling me about what is growing in her garden, or Ginny excitedly explaining her next play performance. Jack likes to tease me about not knowing my left from my right (does every yoga teacher experience this?) and Chris knows I like to hear about the changes of his young son.

I love spending this hour with the ‘crew from the farm’ because my spirit is uplifted. They are always appreciative of our time together as new memories and friendships are created.

Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart. –Eleanor Roosevelt

Namaste,
