I was honored when Paddy asked me if I could teach #NPSF yoga instead of our usual Friday hills, due to the poor outdoor air quality (unhealthy for everyone) from the north bay fires. Thanks to #TheNorthFace for allowing us early morning use of their space!

This was my first time teaching a full one hour yoga class on my own indoors (having taught outdoors over the summer), as well as first time teaching NPSF as a whole.

I came up with a custom routine (and a new playlist) that I thought would suit NPSFs abilities & challenges, provide a good workout, but perhaps most importantly help people connect with themselves, and hopefully find a sense of peace & calm amongst everything happening at the time.

Interestingly, though anxious at the start, I found myself also feeling more peaceful and calm as the class proceeded. Afterwards I was just grateful I was able to provide and serve a community which has inspired and helped me so much.

Learning to teach yoga and share that has been one of the highlights of 2017. My training @YogaFlowSF also left me with more questions than answers, personal and universal, that I know I will be spending more time thinking about in the coming years. Grateful for all my teachers, past and present.
