Ever since the finale of the teacher training...life has gotten busier, it has slowed down....life has continued. There has been an undeniable shift in my place in the universe. Blessings are popping up everyday. Little reminders that I have chosen the correct life path. I have to admit that sometimes I have to check myself and my ego at the door, but that is definitely what takes me back to the mat. Everytime I practice I settle in to that familiar place within myself that is getting easier and easier to be friends with...to be one with. I'm finding that as a teacher you have to stay inspired to be an inspiration. This rang true for me today when I received a phone call from a student that moved to Seattle. He asked me for a recommendation letter for a Yoga Teacher Training program. He told me I inspired him to become a yoga teacher.
Let me just sit down! I had to take a seat. I was at work and I had to relish that moment. As a new teacher, I had no idea that in the short time I had been teaching, I had affected someone's life so profoundly. This inspires me to keep practicing. It inspires me to always check my ego at the door and to be humble in this journey. I don't ever want the "new car smell" to go away in my yoga practice and my teaching. What a lesson I've learned. Thank you William.
