It’s been a while since I've written a blog post. It’s been a busy year with highs and lows, and the main thing I’ve learned is that I will never stop learning about yoga! It is a continuous process and what I know so far is just a drop in the ocean.
I have discovered that I really love teaching yoga. The privilege of sharing what I know about yoga with others is something that I am truly grateful for. Seeing the look of relaxation and joy on the faces of people after a great class is what I do this for. Helping people get some relief from physical, emotional or mental discomfort is humbling.
I have learnt that each person is even more unique that I can ever comprehend. That each person has something beautiful to offer, even if they don’t know it yet.
I see myself not really as your teacher, but as your guide. You know all this stuff already – I am just there to guide you, redirect you and remind you. I personally love to practice and am inspired by the Jivamukti teaching method and I love this quote from one of its founders Sharon Gannon:
“You cannot do yoga. Yoga is your natural state. What you can do are yoga exercises, which may reveal to you where you are resisting your natural state.”
I hope to see you on the mat soon! Namaste - I see the light in you.
