The only reason we don’t open our hearts and minds to other people is that they trigger confusion in us that we don’t feel brave enough or sane enough to deal with. To the degree that we look clearly and compassionately at ourselves, we feel confident and fearless about looking into someone else’s eyes.
I was very lucky to find your studio--my college roommate asked me to join her for months and I finally did. And I am so absolutely thrilled I finally took her up on it. I fell in love with bikram yoga three years again while living in Vermont and practiced three times a week. Last year, I moved back to Massachusetts and tried to get back into bikram after almost a year without it. Sadly, it was a horrible experience--I spent the entire class alternating between sitting and laying on my map trying not to get sick because I was so dizzy. I have been weary to try yoga again--at least in a heated setting. I went to Erin's unheated class last Thursday, and I was immediately calmed in body, mind, and spirit.
