Today was day 2 of Grounded Kids 95 hour Certification Intensive Online. In a group that totals 15, there is 1 black woman. Out of hundreds of Grounded Kids teachers, less than 50 are black. I will spend time figuring out how to correct such a discrepancy but first I have a lot to learn.
It’s Monday after 3 days of grounding 17 grown ups in the art and design of teaching kids yoga Grounded style. I lean back in my chair at lunch, unable to carry on a conversation, and say to Sedef “I’m drained.” Instantly, my body recognized this as untrue.
