A Letter To My Students
Dear Girl Who Wants to be Impressed,
From the minute you walked into class I knew I was in for an experience. Your whole demeanor, from your hot yoga towel (in a specifically not hot class) to your Lululemon, told me you were here to be impressed. It’s cool if you want to get that experience from your practice but I’ll let you know that’s sure not why I’m here.
You didn’t try any variations I had to offer, but maybe you’d discover something really cool if you did. I’m not sure why you felt the need to show off, I’m not sure that you even know why, but if you really, fully experienced yoga that you would get so much more out of your practice.
Next time you’re on your mat I hope you can quiet your mind and listen to your heart. It might be trying to tell you that none of us are here to prove anything, to anyone. Simply being here, in this moment, with all these other beautiful souls is enough. I hope that one day you discover how to look past your ego and listen to your soul.
