Last weekend I got to be a part of a very special pre wedding weekend. Picture 10 best girlfriends gathered around the kitchen of their beautiful Cape house sipping coffee, chatting about last night, and ready to take on the day. There were plans of eating lobsters, drinking a few bud lights, and surely some good ole bachelorette mischief later but they started the day off with a private yoga session taught by yours truly.
Moments like this are the moments that make me so happy that I took the leap from student to teacher. It was a gorgeous sun filled morning so I quickly gathered my bucket of yoga mats and got to setting up for class. Carefully the final touches of a rose quartz stone placed on each mat and the sweet sound of my wedding weekend tunes played and we were ready to begin. The class was a heart opening class and set with the intention of love and supporting each other during this very special time in Cecilia's life.
It was so nice to see the girls that have never stepped foot on a yoga mat gave it a try and those more experienced really enjoyed how special it is to practice with friends. I’d have to say the highlight for me was tree pose at the top of the mat and everyone could reach out and grab arms with their neighbor and the bride's sister yelled out “yay a group hug!” Yes it was and it was perfect!!! It was their moment, their weekend and I am so glad that I got to be a small part of it. They all got to walk away with a new experience, a little extra love in their hearts, and the gift of yoga with friends.
