So I signed up to teach yoga at Mother’s Choice and have been teaching there ever since. Being part of AYC gives me the opportunity to spread the benefits of yoga, especially to those without the means or access to a yoga studio. Thank you AYC!” – Andiappan Yoga Community Volunteer Teacher Bo Thong
