Jasmine Chehrazi, founder of Yoga Activist, has taught yoga to students of diverse backgrounds, from homeless shelter residents to White House staff. But what’s common in all of her classes is love. “Sharing yoga is another way of saying, “I love you,” to total strangers….I hear, “I love you back,” with every breath I’ve shared with students. So by the end of class, something is different. We’re no longer strangers.”
In this Yoga Service Conference Interview with Rob Schware, cofounder of the Give Back Yoga Foundation, Chehrazi discusses why love is her reason for teaching yoga—and also her answer to avoiding compassion fatigue. She will be teaching sequencing for yoga service classes at this year’s Yoga Service Conference presented by Omega and the Yoga Service Council.
