Perseverance

I have been a certified yoga instructor for some time now. Since certification, I really haven’t gotten around to a lot of things I wanted to do. One of the things wanted to do was offer community classes. I love yoga! I love how much benefit there was in each pose. The changes to my body and overall health have been amazing. Part of the reason I wanted to offer yoga to the community was to share my love of Yoga with others.

Community Classes!

After much effort, I was able to start offering classes around San Diego. My first community class started with a local elementary school’s after school program. We had a blast! As a result of those classes, I saw yogis grow to:

  • Manage stress through breathing, awareness, and healthy movement.
  • Build concentration.
  • Become more comfortable being a part of a healthy, non-competitive group.
  • Learn techniques for self-health, relaxation, and inner fulfillment.
  • Exhibit more self-esteem

As a result of being persistent in my pursue to share yoga, I was able to see all of the results above. Additionally, I get the opportunity to see even more benefits of yoga manifest in others!

New Classes

This weekend I held 2 classes for the community. The first was from my Candlelight Yoga series which is held every Friday evening at 5:30 PM at the Martin Luther King Jr Recreational Center. The intention we used throughout our flow was “Don’t give up”. Many of the attendees are new to Yoga, so in the class this intention was applicable. When taken off the mat, and into the world, it is still relevant. Things don’t always work out the way we envisioned them to work out, and we want to give up. Don’t give up on your dreams, and don’t give up on you. You may have to alter your route, or even determine if the path you are on is the right one. Regardless of the situation, don’t give up on yourself.

The second class that I held was for kids in the community. This class occurs every Saturday at 2:00 PM at the Martin Luther King Jr Recreational Center. The young yogis were taught about breathing, and the importance of fully filling their lungs. It was a fun class especially with the amount of energy the yogis brought with them. They were invited to work with their parents to carve out 5 minutes from their week to practice their breathing. I can’t wait to hear how that went!

I hope that you will join us for the candlelight Yoga (adults), or bring your young yogis to the youth Yoga program! If you aren’t able to make the community classes, Contact Me to arrange private yoga sessions for you or your corporate event.
