Deaf Health Talks (in ASL)

On Thursday, September 12th in the evening, the yoga presenter was named Dorothy "Narayani" Wilkins hosted a wonderful Deaf Health Talk on Hatha Yoga.  She provided her brief personal experience, the different fields of yoga, and the benefits of some different poses.   She wanted to help them get a better understanding of yoga.  Thanks to her, yogis left the workshop more informed and relaxed.  Namaste!
