WIC Association: Step up to the plate

The WIC Association (which stands for Women, Infant, Children)  of NYS hosted one of the most inspiring and fun event honoring their staff of over 700 people last Friday, July 27th.  Certainly their staff deserves to be honored considering their contributions through out New York which include a wide variety of services such as promoting nutrition and physical activities for kids and families, clinics on breast feeding and presenting health fairs in local communities.  Asana Alphabet was honored to give a short yoga presentation to help participants de-stress and focus for their guest speaker…we’d like to express our deep gratitude for that. You can see how happy our staff member Dianne feels in the above photo!

Many people take Asana Alphabet’s training in kids’ yoga because they are looking for a career shift…something that will be joyful as work while also making a difference to the world.  Certainly working with children brings many rewards, and if this event by WIC is of any evidence of that, it may be just the most fun place to work in New York…apart from doing yoga, the staff got up to do the electric slide, were treated to a Bollywood dance session and found themselves spreading their wings like an eagle to an inspiring speech delivered by the amazing Reverend Dr. Yoreel C. Fraser Trumpet, who encouraged them to see that the universe is the limit (not just the sky) and to show your eagle spirit.  (See video!).  The organization not only seeks out to promote healthy communities but actually embodies it.
