Today I am grateful and thankful for the students that come to my classes.
I am lucky enough to have a lot of regulars, and I love it when new people come into the classroom. I love to see them discover something about themselves. I love to see them smile and enjoy themselves. I love to see them change and grow as yoga practitioners. I love to see them get stronger and more confident in who they are and what they are capable of doing.
More than anything though, I love how much compassion they have - for me.
I am extremely grateful and thankful for the energy they give each and every class.
For the sacrifices they make to be there.
For the constant support they have shown me in and out of the classroom.
Many read or have read this blog.
Many comment or even send personal emails.
Many always ask how I am doing.
Many always say that they are so happy to see me.
Many keep coming back.
It is extremely gratifying to give to them each and every class.
They completely accept who I am and what I am trying to accomplish and have been constant cheerleaders.
They have sweated with me.
They have cheered.
They have moaned and groaned (but still gave it all they had).
And they have shared many tears with me.
I am very grateful and thankful for my students.
They are not just my students...
they are my friends.
