the best compliment

I didn't blog about this on Saturday because I was out of town all weekend, but a woman that came to my Breathe class on Saturday gave me one of the best compliments ever! (Very unexpected, but it made me realize that I DO make a difference!) She said that she has been taking yoga and Breathe for the past 3 years and in her words "Yoga is my life!" so I assume she knows what she is doing when it comes to yoga and meditation... and she said "I know you always say to come to you with comments after class... well, I just wanted to tell you that you are the only instructor that I can really, truely meditate with. It's like a voice is talking to me when you take me into my meditative state. At first I was afraid of it, but It was so welcoming and now it's something I just crave!"

Wow!
I had no idea I could make such an impact on someone... especially during meditation (I've always thought I needed to work on my meditation teaching style) Apparently I'm doing just fine!!! :)
Her comments really made my day!

Wow, very impressive Sis! Who would have thought, the loud one would be good at coaching mediation??? LOL I'm kidding... I'm the loud one.

Super great compliment... Have you thought any more about those cards??

I know! I couldn't believe it either... My voice must be soothing to her or something. I actually think it's from all the research that I've done on the net about meditation that has helped my coaching abilities to this point. Still, her comment about it, and how it affects her was very rewarding!

Yes, those cards... well, I still need to find a book filled with thoughts that I'd like to convey to my participants. I will look at Chapters for this one book that I found a while ago... it had the perfect messages! (I should have bought it when I saw it, dammit!)

It can be at first... but meditation takes on many forms which are different for different people.

Once you find someoone that can take you to your calm meditative "special place"... you will know what I mean! :)
