Hi. My name is Billy. I practiced in front of you this morning. I’m the guy with the oversized water bottle and undersized shorts.
I overheard you talking with the teacher after class. You said that at one point you felt overwhelmed and needed to take a break. And it made you feel embarrassed.
Just so you know, I’m a teacher too. In fact I own the studio. I knew it was your first ever Yoga class so I was keeping a bit of an eye on you.
You did better than you think.
I saw your determination in trying to grab your foot. I saw your progress by getting it the second time. I saw your concentration in figuring it out. I saw your patience in taking a break. I saw your strength in getting back up.
How you felt is perfectly normal. We all have our struggles, that’s why we are there. And we will be there again tomorrow.
I vote you join us. We can try to grab our feet and see what happens.
Studio Tip-After Class
The best compliment that you could ever give your Yoga Teacher…
“I’ll see you tomorrow.”
