A couple of years ago my friend and I were looking for a new exercise class. We signed up for a stretch class although we wondered if it was suitable for our needs. Jumping ahead, now we look forward every week to that class and two other sessions including yoga, all taught by this amazing woman, Helen. We not only get a great workout, but have become bonded to the group of people who find laughter, support, and friendship within the communities Helen brings together. I hope I've captured her wonderful spirit with this painting.
