My students, in a high-needs Bronx public high school, are very interested in what I have had to say to them about yoga (union of mind and body) and what I have demonstrated for them. I am an English teacher and a New York City teaching fellow, and I am trying to start a yoga program after school (maybe for credit--many of the students need to make up physical-education credits). The students want to start practicing yoga and I can and want to teach them, but we need a set of yoga mats (twenty to twenty-five) to make the experience complete. Anyone who has practiced yoga can attest to its life-altering effects: teaching knowledge of mind and self in a way no book can, cultivating maturity and serenity, as well as fitness. There is no yoga studio or school to speak of in the Bronx, so we cannot turn to any local resource to ask for assistance. So we humbly ask here.
