Nora Vimala Pozzi and Susi Durga Wilbur
Susi Durga Wilbur, a local social worker and outdoor hiking and backpacking instructor who is also deaf, is offering two Integral Yoga classes in American Sign Language (ASL) at the Integral Yoga Center of Richmond, where she graduated as a yoga teacher last May.
Yoga is one of the many practices that is not often available to the deaf community, and no ASL yoga classes were offered in Virginia. That was the main reason Wilbur embarked in this long and demanding training. Her class, geared to people that are deaf, is a very gentle form of yoga that focuses on breathing, relaxation, meditation and gentle postures.
