Thank you for being such an excellent teacher

I wanted to thank you for being such an excellent teacher. Your compassion, enthusiasm, and expertise come through with every class. Even though I can’t attend as often as I’d like, my heart is often in the studio. I was thinking about how I could best persuade readers of your website (in the testimonials section) how important your Ashtanga studio and teachings have been to me, and so I came up with some ideas. How BeFit Ashtanga Studio Has Given to Me: Physically: * I finally lost the 15 pounds of post-baby delivery fat that I’d been struggling with for four years * I have much more energy: more than when I was running or doing other types of exercise * I need less sleep * My back, often a source of muscle pain, has felt awesome since I started practice regularly seven months ago Mentally: * I am more peaceful * I used to spend hours a day — or night — worrying. I’m still a worrier, but for far fewer hours a week * I get stress-related hives. The last time I got them, instead of taking medicine, which makes me sleepy, I practiced Ashtanga yoga, and the hives went away. Spiritually: * Actually, I think this is where I’m learning the most, but it’s hard to put it into words. As the Professor from The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe says about Narnia, so too about the yogic journey: “Indeed, don’t  try to get there at all. It’ll happen when you’re not looking for it. And don’t talk too much about it even among yourselves. And don’t mention it to anyone else unless you find that they’ve had adventures of the same sort themselves . . .”
