Gratitude. The first thing I think about when I reflect on my life as a yoga teacher. What an amazing vocation to share and witness the process of life, my life and others.
Surprisingly I experienced a class that brought new meaning to the word gratitude, opening my eyes to how yoga is a reflection of life in each of us.
I was visiting my friend and fellow yoga teacher, Anna Marti in Portland, Oregon. She volunteers for a wonderful organization called Living Yoga (http://www.living-yoga.org) that brings yoga to people who wouldn’t normally have access to or be familiar with the benefits of yoga. Classes are held in prisons, drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers, shetlers and similar facilities.
