During this Summer I’ve been teaching a Sunday a.m. yoga class in our neighborhood green space. It has been such an amazing place to share yoga with my neighbors and fellow yogis. This morning the sky was a rich blue (as is often the case in Colorado), and the trees were just beginning to change colors with a few leaves showing some yellow and orange, the grass was wet enough that we could feel the moisture between our toes, and the temperature was a crisp 59 degrees. It was a blissful morning yoga class. The richest part of this class, and all classes, is the practice that students bring to their mats. I’ve always felt a sense of bliss when I step on my mat ready to focus my mind and engage my breath and body, and I observe this in my students. This morning, one of my students who has practiced with me for several years came to class, and while her dedication to her yoga practice is always observable, today, it was palpable. She has been working on her Pigeon pose, a pose that is intended to deeply open the hips (known as the King of Hip Openers), and this morning she perfected the pose – and even added an advanced modification. This is the bliss that is experienced in yoga, for students, and for teachers!
