This past Saturday, a bunch of people and I spent the day in the bowels of a Newark, NJ school, painting an old classroom so that it could be re-purposed for use as a yoga room.
Why yoga? you ask. The kids in Newark are getting awfully new-agey, right?
Well, it started as an experiment. One of the kindergarten teachers is a yoga instructor and she decided to give it a try to see if it helped some of the anger issues they had.
Lo and behold, it did. So they found a room, but it needed a little work...
Because it was ugly. No offense to the person who picked out the industrial green, and totally non-matching blue trim. But it was ugly.
