We raised $18 for Jefferson Elementary today. To me, that's a victory. To me, the eleven people who showed up this morning are heroes. When people find out about these classes, the first question I hear is "why"? Why am I doing this and why is it free?
It's because I am absolutely convinced that yoga saved my life. For most of my life, I was depressed, miserable and angry. I was tired, hurting and bloated. I spread negativity wherever I went. Although It didn't happen overnight, adding yoga to my life took me from the saddest person I know to the happiest. I put a lot of work in. It has all been worth it and I truly want to share it with everyone around me. I'm not unique. It will work for you, too!
New to yoga? Come to a class. If you don't like me as a teacher, please find another teacher. Really. :) We sit and breathe and learn to love ourselves in my classes and I realize that approach doesn't work for everyone. However, yoga WILL work for you, I promise! There are many types of yoga and many wonderful teachers out there. Find a teacher you connect with, someone who inspires you to come back for more, someone who tells you things you already knew, but needed to be reminded of :)
I close every class with the words "thank you for taking the time to take care of yourself". I know it's a choice to show up to an exercise class. I know that there is often something else to do. I also know that once you start to show yourself a little love, magical things happen. :)
Questions & comments are always welcome :) See you tomorrow!
