Who knew there was so much paperwork involved with teaching yoga! Oh well, nearly there… nearly there! =) / Hey wassup dawg? – It’s Friday bitch! … sigh… Sometimes I wonder about my sense of humour. Other days… I just accept I am the way I am and pictures like this make me laugh like there’s no tomorrow. I’m sorry about the language. But I’m not sorry about the way it makes me feel. lol =p Alright. It’s friday… I’m gonna peace out before I start quoting that and filling this blog with profanities! =p x

Perhaps the greatest honour, is when a teacher turns to a student and puts the chalk in his hand. When someone believes in you that much, it is hard not to believe in yourself. So thank you, Mark, for turning today on its head and reminding me that you never really know what the day has in store for you until it’s over. Every second, a million other decisions are being made in the world that will – whether you know it or not – have some sort of effect in your life. This may be immediate, or it may come as a ripple that arrives minutes, hours, days… years later. Who knows? Thank you for keeping me on my toes and giving me the opportunity to learn and be challenged once again; the opportunity to practice humility and remember that I am nothing but a vessel, through which all learnings and inspiration find expression. From here, it only gets better. Grateful. / On a lighter note… this audition by the Sh’boss boys… is The cutest thing ever. “One day, we was listening to the wadio. And we started wappin!” Lord you could only wish your kids were this cute!
Day 301: 300 days of appreciation, Finishing my first 6-week teaching course, Having my class observed by Mark, The Dictator and Adele, Live at the Royal Albert Hall…

300 days of appreciation. And not a single bad day in between… / My colleague asked me the other day if gratitude really works, and if I can honestly say I haven’t had a bad day in the last 200++. To which I responded, “You will never have a bad day, if you can be grateful for at least one thing that happened. Because just that one thing, would have given your day purpose.” I truly believe this. And I am grateful it’s something I learned sooner rather than later. / Today, I taught my 6th yoga class, which was technically the end of my first 6-week teaching course. So far, I have taught 10 people in total, with an average of 4-5 per class. 4 of those were men. 2 of which were brand new to yoga. 1 of those men bought a mat from me. And the other just signed up to a 10-day, unlimited, special induction package at Indaba. Every Saturday morning, my students come to class. They lay their mats and they offer up their practice. They are focused and hungry, eager to learn more. They teach me as much as I teach them. And I am grateful for that. Jo, Dani, DJ, Kav, Behull, Sarah, Louise, Illy, Claire, Saral… It has, and will continue to be, my pleasure. / Mark, thank you so much for taking the time today to observe and give feedback on my class. Your comments and ongoing mentorship, belief and support are much appreciated. And it can only get better from here =) / The Dictator – so wrong, it’s right. I have not laughed so hard in a film in such a long time. This is definitely one to have on DVD! / Adele, my dear. I don’t know how many times I am going to be grateful for you on this blog. But what can I say? Tonight, I am grateful I got to watch a rerun of you performing Live at the Royal Albert Hall. I only wished I could have been there. You have a gift. And that gift is being able to put into lyrics, melodies and chords, feelings that would have otherwise driven us mad from despair on the inside. You give voice to the 10 million ++ people that have been fortunate enough to hear your music. And your success is proof that when it’s real, Love can only ever be inspiring. No matter the outcome. This moment – magic. x
