Yes, I have teachers, too! A teacher is always a student. There is no shortage of Yoga literature and guidebooks today. And I know how important it is to have a home practice. But, a teacher or mentor is someone who holds a mirror to you, so you have a clearer vision of yourself.
I seek out teachers who also continue to practice and study yoga. Yoga is "skill in action." To maintain a skill, we need to keep "sharpening the saw." My teachers challenge me: physically, mentally, spiritually. They inspire me to become the best version of myself. And, that takes work!
So, here is to all of my inspiring teachers: Kathleen M. Wright, Patrina Dobish, Kim Schwartz, Laurie Blakeney, Lois Steinberg, Gabriel Halpern, Geeta Iyengar, Abhijata Iyengar.
And here is to my yoga students, my greatest teachers, who help me see what I need to learn.
