Things I Love About Teaching

Every Time Someone Says They Can’t Wait Until My Next Class

When I am wrapping up a class and someone comes up to me and says something like, “That was amazing, when’s your next class?” Or, “I love your classes, I always look forward to them!” Or, “I can’t wait until your next class!” etc. This is such an honour and joy for me. When I teach, I always ask if there is anything anyone was really hoping to work on, any particular pose, strengthening, stretching, or a mix. Sometimes people shout out answers, sometimes it’s like there are crickets in the room, either way it’s fine for me, I just love to share a little bit of my own personal practice. When I do my own practice, it can be pretty advanced or deep, but when I teach I like to do similar things, or ways to work towards what I do in my personal practice, or more accessible variations. Either way, when I teach, I’m sharing a little bit of me and what I feel is important in that moment. So when a student comes up to me at the end of class and says something like what I mentioned before it is so amazing to me. I really feel so thankful to be able to make a living doing what I love the most. Just like anyone, sometimes I have off days where I wish I could just stay in bed, but when I finish teaching and I get lovely comments like that, it always brings me back down to earth and reminds me of why I started teaching in the first place. Positive comments really reaffirm to me that what I am doing is truly my path and it makes me excited for everything I will learn in the future and share with my classes. The opportunity to share what I love in my practice and get such positive feedback is one of the MANY reasons that I LOVE teaching so SO much!
