I said this to a member today who was struggling with a long term journey of recovery. She came and spoke to me afterwards, telling me some of her story, and I asked her how she felt during the class. She said "inadequate". I felt so sad to hear that because I was honestly expecting her to say the opposite. Her comparison seems to be with her former self. I hope she can find a way to accept and appreciate where she is at on her journey. A gentle reminder to be kind to others because you never know what they are struggling with. πŸ€—πŸ’žπŸ™

comparison is the thief of joy. so let's celebrate, support, collaborate, share, champion and cheer, participate, partner and build with others. we all win when we can stand alongside others in their strengths and weaknesses alike. we truly are better together. πŸ‘―πŸ‘―πŸ‘―

I used to find relaxation/meditation the most difficult part of a #bodybalance class. I was always restless and antsy, my mind elsewhere and sometimes a little anxious. After years of practice it's still a challenge but one that I accept with an open and present heart πŸ’—

Steamy goodness on a grumpy, rainy Friday. A drop of revitalising peppermint oil in my water bottle for my sore throat and a wonderfully healing oil blend in the diffuser. πŸŒ«πŸ’§πŸŒ«

I've had to take a few days off teaching because of a strained wrist but I'm super keen to get back into it today... fingers crossed the wrist holds out! πŸ€žπŸ€œπŸ‘

As a new yoga teacher I'm still figuring it out as I go and I don't always know whether I'm hitting the mark with what people want/need from their yoga class. I'm thankful for any specific feedback I get that can help me improve. And then some days just a few words can mean a lot πŸ“πŸ’ŒπŸ€—
