“I’m a teacher, and usually when I go into my classroom at the beginning of each year, I am overwhelmed by the amount of things to do. In the past I have always felt rushed, confused, and exhausted. After doing yoga almost every day with Guruatma this summer, I’ve had a very different experience this time. I was able to take one thing at a time and enjoy doing it. I experienced a sense of creativity in arranging the furniture, library and other materials, and in designing and creating the bulletin boards.
During the summer, I write poetry. This summer I experienced a new found ability to quiet my inner critic and to hear my poems as they came to me.
My son has also noticed a difference. ‘Mom, when you say no now, you say it quietly and calmly.’
Teaching, writing, and mothering are the three deeply important activities for me. That each of these has undergone an improvement is a blessing and source of joy to me.”
