The class that I had the honor of teaching at UU summer day camp. Look at those upward dogs! I felt like I was flying after this class and am so completely thrilled beyond words to be teaching. I have never done anything else that feels so amazing. The kids are so lovely to teach, and I couldn't be happier than to be surrounded by them. I know it sounds corny, but the future looks so much brighter when you talk to and interact with the future generation of peacemakers and leaders. I truly feel that way.

A Yoga filled Friday

Thank you to my sweet friend Robyn, who is allowing me to use her beautiful studio to teach class. This morning, I had a really lovely class with so many sweet little ones that I love! How could one possibly NOT feel blessed when completely surrounded by these sweet spirits. A few favorite highlights of the day:
  • Two sisters snuggled together during shavasana, I don't have words for how beautiful and special that was to witness.
  • As I was rolling up yoga mats, Ty Ty asked if we were going to do yoga class again. I said "Right now?" and he nodded yes. What a cutie!
The title of the book that I read today is The Mouse & the Buddha by Kathryn Price, about a mouse living in Dharamsala. The illustrations are beautiful and the lessons are priceless. Be kind to one another, be loving, and help those who are in need. It's a beautiful story. I will definitely be reading this one again, and adding it to our home library.

Have a great idea for a book I could use in my class? Comment below please!

In the evening, Cisco, Eva, and I went to family yoga at Soul of Yoga in Encinitas. It's so fun to stretch and play together. We were lead by my instructor, Jodi Komitor, who always leads a wonderful class and is such an inspiration.

A beautiful day of yoga in the park! The kids loved being chased around after yoga by the three dads who attended class.
