In the third week of my teacher training at It’s Yoga SF, the instructor for the 930 AM class didn’t show up. I was there, journalling after my 7:30 AM practice with “the Yogaman,” and Larry said, “Guess who is teaching at 9:30?” I said, “who?”He said, “YOU!”
I said, “I’m not done with training yet!!!!!!!!” He said, “Me either! Take the handout in with you. Put everyone in a circle.” It was so hard to say “no” to Larry.
So I walked in the room, and asked the 3 students to make a circle…I began, and led them through the MPS – Modified Primary Series, with my handout close. After the class, Patricia walked up to me, she said, “Thank you. That was amazing.”
I said, “Really? It was my first class!”
Fast forward 13 years. Patricia wrote this to me yesterday:
‘Sometimes when things are a bit hectic here and I don’t have time to practice, I do what I call “yoga moment”! I stop what I’m doing, breath, close my eyes and do whatever pose I feel like! When I open my eyes, I very often see my boys next to me trying to do the same pose and it is so beautiful, it brings so much peace to my heart! I light an incense, we have a group hug and celebrate life!”
For the love. IT IS SUCH A PRIVELIGE TO SHARE YOGA….The gifts of giving just keep coming…and I realize, that I am the one receiving all the gifts.
