Amahe Girma, Ethiopia
"Amahe is part of my practice teaching
group. English is his second language and he doesn't have any experience
teaching Power Yoga. Regardless, each time we get together as a group
to practice, he stands up and gives it his all. The language barrier and
the lack of experience teaching can be excuses for him to say no, but he chooses each time to
say yes. I am truly inspired by his determination, his strength and his
compassion. His way of being is a constant reminder to me that I can
also choose yes when I would rather succumb to my fears and say no. Amah shines and has inspired me to do the same." - Kelly Holzscheiter
I have learned to be courageous. I am able to focus fully. I have learned to share with others.
What or who has inspired you?
What has inspired me most is the teachers and the group.
What will you do with this training once you return to your community in Ethiopia?
I want to open a yoga studio and I will help children through Imagine 1 Day. I want to teach my community yoga for free.
Yoga practice is going well for me and everything is fine. Now I am
learning more about yoga and I promise when I go back I will teach the
community. I thank you for giving me this opportunity to learn yoga.
