Marathon yoga teaching...

Hooray! Celebrate with me. I've just finished teaching 18 classes in two weeks and I feel great. It was a joyful, exhausting, and illuminating experience for me and I hope for the students I taught.

A true gift was given to me by a student that I've taught for a few terms now. She is a classic "push yourself harder" type of student. One that I'm steadily easing into a gentler space. A place of grace and acceptance. This week she told me that she had finally found a place opening within her by NOT striving for it. YES! I felt that I had truly made a difference in her life and hopefully in the lives of others.

I simply love my job and I am so grateful for the growth, kindness, and blessing of living this life. I read in a magazine today that being a celebrity means simply living a life filled with celebration. That's exactly how I feel. Come be a celebrity with me and exult in your wondrous life as well.


Namaste peeps,


Jan

There is something so truly amazing about having taught a huge number of classes in a short space of time. Hurrah for you!

(and thank you for the link to my blog, that makes me feel like a celebrity!)

I am so pleased you enjoy your job - hardly a "job" when it's such a rewarding part of your life. It's fabulous that you realised your own gift and vocation :)

Celebrate !!!!!!
