Join us on the eve of the annual outdoor mega-yoga event for a special opportunity to meet Matthew Sanford up close and personal, at a special event at the new Equinox Armonk.
Matthew will read from his memoir, Waking: A Memoir of Trauma and Transcendence, speak about how he uses yoga practice to address the short and long-term effects of traumatic loss and disability and answer questions. The body that I live in suffers, and it has a lot of pain in it, but through my yoga practice, and at my very core, life feels good.” These are the words of Matthew Sanford in a recent interview with YogaCityNYC. Paralyzed after a car accident at age thirteen, Matthew now teaches yoga all over the world. Says Matthew: “Yoga is for all people and all bodies.”
