It’s Hot Fun In The Summertime with those lil’ yogis!
I’m teaching a summer course at a day camp, and let me tell you, it’s music to my ears when I walk into the room and see my lil’ niños All Fired Up for yoga. Some kids I’ve had previously over the years and some are brand new. There’s this one little boy, four years old, a total sweetie, who’s a bit freaked out being away from his parents all day, meeting new kids, and having a new ritual and a new pattern of living. Thusly, a new experience. He’s shy. He’s sensitive. I get it. I was the same way as a little boy. He was not feeling the first two weeks of yoga, but I kept coming and paid a attention to him. This week for yoga he was all ready to go! He made a beeline to his mat, sat down quietly, and was all smiles. He changed. I could see he was more confident and more secure, and he was a leader in class. Awesome!
This four year old little boy inspired me with my teaching and practice. He inspired me to keep on keeping on and smile. I couldn’t ask for anything more!
