I learned about OM for life from my niece through a Facebook link when I was just about finished with chemo and heading into six weeks of radiation. From the moment classes began, I felt that the free yoga class was one of two extraordinary gifts most personal to me, the other being a fantastic—okay, reasonably fantastic—wig!
There was no other hour of the week where I felt completely myself within a community that needed no explanation or comfort. Every class ended with a much stronger me in spirit and well-being. Regardless of the instructional level of intensity, I physically and emotionally felt on my way to better health superseding any kind of actual medication. Our instructors are women who emanate non-judgement, belief in our ability to regain strength, and compassion without pity for our plight. They have given me a sense of complete trust, hard to articulate, and peppered our classes with so much to learn and embrace. I don’t want our classes to end every Saturday.
The fact that it is free and perfectly scheduled also lends the experience to more gratitude and relief. I am deeply grateful for this part of my healing and look forward to a lifelong commitment to yoga. -Adina
