Highlights From The Week

September 15, 2017 in About Me / College

This week had so many lovely things in it!!! Aka I was an absolute cheese-ball and 1000% embraced it. 

~ On Monday I started meeting with other lovely women for a retreat we are leading. I have the honor of working with two other students and three staff to coordinate a women’s interfaith spirituality retreat. AND teach yoga on it. I am so so so excited to facilitate this experience for others and create a space where everyone feels welcome. 

Creating an environment with women being open, honest, and empowering one another is something I am so excited to do. 

~ On Monday I also taught my first yoga class at my college!! There was a relatively big turn out and my gosh was I nervous before hand. Had to call my momma to talk about random nonsense to get my mind off my nerves lol. But once I got there and truly felt grounded in my area I just had an absolute blast. 

~ I taught again on Tuesday and felt WAY more calm and confident. Teaching is bringing me tons of joy. This practice means the world to me and being able to share it with others is the best feeling!! 

~ I got to visit my friends at the HOPE house this Thursday. This is a home for special needs and disabled adults. I’ve been going here since my freshman year. These humans just radiate so much happiness. Loved getting to spend an hour of my day with them.

~ I subbed in for a teacher that was sick on Thursday and taught a class. Figured out how to dim the lights in shavasana which was lovely and got to teach some friends as well. 🙂 

Grateful for these opportunities. Grateful for the times I am uncomfortable- for those moments help me grow. Grateful for the humans in my life that conintuously support me and stand by my side. How beautiful it is to have others cheer you on with each and every stride. 

Have the best weekend friends!! Please tell me a highlight from your week- I wanna hear ’em!!

    I am so blessed by the heart God has given you for people, for the down and out, for those who need sooo much love; I also love that you are so good at teaching; that takes a special gift.

    Go you for kick starting your teaching!! So glad to hear once you got over your nerves (which of course is to be expected) that you had such a blast. And for being asked to lead the retreat this weekend! WOW. That will be such a special experience. I really look forward to hearing about it.

    You impress me, Lyss! Teaching in front of a large class would definitely be a little scary. I’m sure you killed it and left everyone in a happy, peaceful yoga bliss. Also, thanks for the reminder about being grateful for those uncomfortable moments. I need to recognize that more often <3
