I teach a Yin Yoga stretching class at The Ashram on Sunday afternoons and Wed evenings. I look forward to these classes each and every week. I am so honored to get to lead class. Today was a lovely energy of 22 yogis in the large studio. I turn the heat off but the floor remains quite warm throughout class. I feel the heat permeate my mat and I always feel more pliable as a result. I knew most of the students and it is always so cool to see their practice unfurl. The new students are also such a blessing – I get to share a little bit of my yoga enthusiasm and hope I ignite interest in the practice.
During class it is all about their experience. I learn to let my own worldly concerns vanish in hopes of giving something meaningful to the students. I have so much to learn from being an instructor. I read once you need to show your vulnerabilities and speak your expertise.
Life is good. Breathe. Cultivate gratitude.
