An excellent teacher
A student sent me this and it made my day so I want to share it:
I think you did a great job with the class yesterday. You were helpful with the new student and your comments on how seasoned yoga students can benefit from using a beginner's point of view was very poignant.
I remember early on when I first started doing yoga that you would say "don't compare yourself to anyone else in the room" and I needed that reminder at the time because, of course, that is exactly what one does.
That's what makes you such an excellent teacher. You are good at "reading the room."
