The first time I assisted a yoga teacher training, I said to myself, "How amazing would it be to do this for a living?!" Years later, I am grateful to say that I am - and it is...
Last weekend, I worked with an inspired and inspiring group of yogis who were just beginning their teacher training journey. No matter how many times I have the opportunity to do this, I am struck by how rewarding it is to witness as a collection of strangers transforms into a true community with a common commitment to learning and sharing their knowledge with others. The experience never fails to leave me with a fresh burst of enthusiasm for my own yoga practice and teaching.
This principle extends far beyond training yoga teachers: anytime you can light a fire within someone else - and empower them to do the same - you set into motion a cycle of perpetual reward. An investment in the life of another inevitably yields a return in your own.
How can you bring cheer to another today?
