There’s always a first time…

About two years ago, I took what I though was the biggest hit I had ever taken (This is probably subject for another post). Little did I know it was actually the biggest blessing I have received.

When I was at my  lowest point, Yoga came and saved my life. Then, it changed it. And, eventually, slowly slowly, it became my life.

Last year, I realized it would be a sin not to share with the world all the Love and Happiness that flows through me because of Yoga and decided I wanted to teach my beautiful practice. Again, little did I know this decision had already been taken long before I could even imagine.

It has not been an easy path since. It definitely has had some beautiful and magic moments, but also others full of doubt and fear. But if there’s anything Yoga has taught me is to surrender, trust and let Love guide.

YOGA-TEACHER

Tonight I taught my first class in a real studio. It is just a small step in a long path, but  a very meaningful one to me. I’m sure it was not the best class but it was special and honest. At some point when fear and doubt started to take the best of me. I surrendered again, thanked for the opportunity to teach, asked Love for inspiration and just let Love speak through me. I taught from deep within my heart.

It was beautiful to feel the presence of some of my own teachers and fellow practitioners help me get through in those moments of nervousness and doubt.

I can only hope that the students left with a little of what I felt tonight and that I was able to touch their hearts and inspire them in some way.

To close the night off, after everyone had left the studio I sat in front of the altar to integrate my experience and thank. After a couple of minutes I was crying like a five years old girl.

It was humbling and beautiful.

Love and Happiness,

Mannu

  1. I believe that what you have described is an experience of a true yoga teacher. I can’t imagine a better beginning than the one you have made. Your students have a teacher.
