Meet Our Volunteers
We are so proud of the volunteers who choose to give their time to our affordable communities and residents. If you're interested in volunteering with Eden, please go to Volunteer with Eden Housing.
Below is Eden Housing's Volunteer of the Month.
Name: Marcia Leitner
What site do you volunteer at? Altenheim
Why did you chose to volunteer with Eden Housing? I was looking for an opportunity to share my passion for yoga with seniors in my local community.
What have you done as a volunteer? Please describe your role and any projects you have worked on. I have been teaching a gentle yoga class to residents of the Altenheim once a week since October of 2016.
What have you learned through your volunteer experience? Have there been any surprises? I am learning to be a better yoga teacher and how to modify the poses so that they are accessible to students with different abilities and physical limitations. I enjoy getting to know each individual who attends the classes and I am surprised about how good I feel after every class.
What do you like best about volunteering with Eden Housing? I love the students I have met who regularly come to my class. They are willing to learn and are so appreciative to have a regular yoga class at the Altenheim. I love seeing my students leave class more relaxed and smiling.
Tell us something we may not know about you. Any interesting facts you’d like to share about your life? I have been an attorney for 28 years and have recently stepped back from a busy legal practice to follow my passions for yoga, travel and nonprofit work. I am currently taking a workshop on yoga for healthy aging, where I am learning how yoga can help foster physical, mental and emotional health as we age. I look forward to sharing my new knowledge with my yoga students at the Altenheim.
