THIS is why I do my job!

Teaching yoga is unexpectedly rewarding work. The rewards are not necessarily raking in the big bucks, which you might have figured out by now, but you can make a living (I have been for most of my adult life) and the REWARDS. This is why I do my job...

It's for emails like this one:

'My letter to you guys...

Dear yoga teachers,

Tonight I was having dinner with a girlfriend at a newly opened local fab restaurant . 

I'd only had 2 glasses of wine ( telling you that so you know  I wasn't legless) ... Went to the ladies and on my way my shoe heel  slid from under me on the polished concrete floor. It was slow motion , as I felt my left foot slide ,instantly my core engaged , as I went towards the floor, my left hand went to the floor and I was stabilised and i also steadied myself with my right hand on the base of the leg of a bar stool ( that a young woman was sitting on ). My right leg stayed stable ... I didn't fall on the ground ... I then pushed up through my legs to an upright position.

I apologised for the kerfuffle,  (although I was up before any one really noticed ), and assured everybody to their amusement that I wasn't pissed! 

I was so pleased that I kept my balance ...

even though I was soooo close to the floor..and I didn't even get the prickly skin adrenaline rush. 

It was like a warrior pose , with a twist and squat !

Yoga compliments my other activities and has helped me transform my core ...

So my thanks to you for your yoga teachings . It was my core strength and flexibility that prevented me from going down like bag of the proverbial ...

Have a great week end ...

I'm still a bit amazed !

With much love D'

That's a better quality of life, right there. And the work I do helped that.

This is why I do my job.

And also, for the glow people have after the end-of-class savasana.
