Next up is Argos Gonzalez, of Little Flower Yoga. He’s also a teacher, and has lots of teens attending his after school yoga classes.
“We can get these programs into schools under the STEM programs. The teachers most skeptical are the science teachers and then become the biggest supporters.”
“When you take 3 breaths, you’re showing yourself lots of compassion & taking care of yourself, we all need that. The more we take care of ourselves, being compassionate with ourselves, the easier it is to be compassionate with others.”
