#jogaforschools update! One of my last schools for this 2017-2018 school year. One I hold near to my ❤️. Thank you to Clifton School and @totodiger for making it happen!
In the spring I started a new project to take Joga into the schools and a portion of all proceeds goes back to charity. It’s been a great experience and one I hope to continue!
Many years ago my teaching career began in this beautiful tiny school in the West End of Winnipeg. Names of students I can still recall and others I recognize as being somewhere in my path of life but not by name...The neighborhood is still as I remember and my tiny school field hasn’t changed much. My tiny little gym was my home. My return was a bit of a secret homecoming. Secret in that it was in my own mind...I have not taught in this gym in over ten years but it felt like yesterday that I was finding creative ways to use ALL of our small spaces...running kids in the hall, making Big Hand racquets, using empty class rooms for circuits, and giving the kids in the neighborhood active experiences outside the school...extracurricular activities, loading 60 kids on public transportation- an experience all in itself...shuttling kids to LaBarrier for orienteering, heading downtown to Supreme Racquet courts, and the list goes on...The students of today have no clue the time and effort, the love and passion I poured into the walls of that building but that’s okay. I had the opportunity to meet with some new faces and faces that I remember very well 💕
Sometimes one path leads to another...and now I am able to bring something else that I am passionate about! Thanks again to the staff and students of Clifton School! #joga204 #jogaworld If you have taken the time to read this far, thank you! If you know of any #winnipeg schools looking to add to their programming, let them know where to find me!
