No, Thank YOU

Yesterday was Thanksgiving and boy was I thankful!  I have been thinking a lot lately about just how grateful I am that Heartbeat Yoga is up and running and I have to pinch myself when I think about all of the help and support I received by you wonderful people.  I am so lucky to have you all in my life.

Teaching yoga is my dharma, my life’s work.  It’s my passion, it’s my heart, and teaching yoga never actually feels like work.  That I now have the privilege of teaching yoga through my very own company feels like a dream come true.

The thing is, even though it makes me feel great, I can't help but wonder if it’s making my students feel equally as great.  And then I got this text message yesterday from one of my first students:

Happy Thanksgiving!!  I am thankful I met you and fell in love with yoga.  Enjoy your day!

I mean, whoa!  What more can I ask for than something like that?  This student had never practiced yoga before coming to my class.  If I can impact only a handful of students in my time teaching yoga in this life, then I know it’s all worthwhile.

I am not a yoga teacher without students and Heartbeat Yoga would not exist if not for all of you amazing people out there who read this blog, attend my classes, and cheer me on from near and far.  I am so grateful.
