As part of personal recovery, I volunteer with The Red Project. I particularly like helping during the annual Walk To Stop HIV, which is where Dana and I met. She was leading a yoga warm-up before the walk and invited me to join them that morning. This would unknowingly change my life forever.
I have remained clean and sober for almost 6 years and share the date with Dana's birthday!
When I began my yoga it was during a very dark period with anger issues concerning relationships with others, including family members. I have been able to come to considerable peace in this area of my life through regular association with individuals and groups such as EmbodyGR. This is a tremendous help, since now I know my family supports me again and the tribe "has my back," too! It really helps when Dana always says thank you to the group for doing the hardest part - showing up! Through her yoga, Dana helps everyone feel welcome and included.
