Joys of Teaching Yoga!
Today reminded me of the joys of teaching Yoga.
A student that just started coming said, with tears in her eyes, that she was out of pain for the fist time in over 40 years ! The hair on my arms stood straight up! Such a happy feeling comes over me when a student's face goes from being in pain to a peaceful smile.
This happens frequently!
People are starving to find a way to get out of pain without using drugs, surgery, etc.
John Friend, my teacher and the founder of Anusara Yoga, has simplified alignment techniques so that we can al l be more aware of our alignment and get out of pain. He teaches us that pain is a good thing. It lets us know that something is a little out of sync. When we pay attention and know how to get back in line with nature we are happier beings which makes people around us morejoyful. Life is more full and blissful for us all!
