One of my students told me that her office mates are jealous that she has a steady date with her yoga class. They know that Thursday means she's leaving on time, because it's yoga night.
This warms a yoga teacher's heart, of course, this dedication. But the next thing she told me I'll hold dear for the rest of my life: "I don't like to miss class because you always tell us we're beautiful."
I hadn't realized it until she said that, because it's a natural response to seeing people breathing with awareness, reaching out through hands and heart and feet from the strength of solid foundations from a rock steady core. I realized then that I do say several times each class, after finishing a series of instructions: "Beautiful." Because you are.
Come because you already are. Beautiful. And you want to feel that beauty with every fiber of your being.
Yoga is about sensing your body from the inside out. Experimenting with foundation and connection and learning to feel things that we ignore for large parts of our lives. Come to yoga for that: to feel the things that modern life has us ignore. Come to yoga to feel everything you already are.
