Party of 1 #memyselfandI #standtallandstrong

I am amazed by how far I have come on this yoga teaching journey. Two and a half years ago I would have been devastated by a "no show" yoga class.This Thursday 10:00 class is one I look forward to every week. It's the class I walk into and find a hum of yogis catching up with each other while laying down mats in their favorite spot. This group has become a community, a sangha. 2-1/2 years ago, I would have taken it quite personally to find an empty room, as if it was in some way a reflection of my ability to teach. I might have gone to a million dark places in my mind. Today I realize it only means that all of my students are busy with their lives. This studio can be very noisy while I teach and often I tell my students not to take it personally. More than likely the people in the other room actually have no idea we're even in there. The windows have film and the doors are closed. So often in life we take things personally that have little or nothing to do with us. Today, I will take a piece of my own advice and revel in the growth that has been my inspiration since I started teaching. It is worthy of mention that 2-1/2 years ago, I NEVER would have posted this. I would have kept this information hidden for fear that people might think that I wasn't a strong teacher. As a student of life, I will always have more to learn but I now see clearly that I am walking more confidently in the direction of my dreams, cliche as it may sound. I know my true purpose is to share yoga with those who need it and those who just want it. I wake up excited every day for what's to come. I have much less room in my heart for those who want to criticize or throw shade.. Every day I grow more comfortable in my own skin. I look at each day as an opportunity to make my difference by doing the work, both on the mat and off. It's the yoga. It never lies. Yoga meets you exactly where you are. So grateful for this empty Thursday morning yoga class which filled my soul with a reminder that it's how we choose to see life not what we see #emptyroomfullheart #lightbulbmoment #namaste
