It is a tremendous honor to be the recipient of "Yoga Article of the Year 2015" for my article on sharing yoga with Syrian communities. Thank you to Seattle Yoga News for recognizing this work and for sharing it with the broader yoga community.
The true recipients of the award are the courageous Syrians that I had the opportunity to work with in offering yoga. Their lives have been uprooted physically and polarized politically, and they have suffered immeasurable loss. They faced their grief and life’s uncertainty with love, humor, and an unstoppable drive to support one another – the foundation for collective healing.
Endless gratitude to everyone who has been part of this project – I look forward to building on the momentum with you to continue offering yoga to more Syrians and other communities impacted by conflict.
