We are excited to offer a new way to connect to our community and tell the story of CFCR. We are a social justice organization focusing solely on child advocacy- in our advocacy we must understand deeply the impacts of trauma on child and ways to help them heal and cope, we need to be experts in fighting systems that fail to provide children resources and services they need, and we need to draw close to children in crisis and be that stabilizing force. It takes a high degree of passion to do this work- for us it is not a job, but a purpose in life. It is this concept of passion and purpose- of finding a life calling- that is so similar to the goals of yoga. While many may think yoga is strictly a great workout (and it is) there is so much more to yoga, the guiding principles, the purpose and beliefs — yoga provides a path where people can find true passion and purpose for their life. In this – this purpose, this passion- there are many similarities between yoga principles and child advocacy- so here we are today- where these 2 world’s collide- child advocacy and yoga.
