This week I was running late to teach my yoga class, but it wasn’t completely my fault. I had left on time, but there was tons of traffic. These days I depend on my Waze App and new magnetic phone holder to help find me the best route and it is usually right on target. Unfortunately, the app took me through some very congested areas and I was a few minutes late. Rush hour in LA isn’t fun and I guess I discovered this the hard way once again.
I really didn’t want to be late because I love this class. It’s a small one, but the ladies are just lovely. It’s in a senior community center and since it’s small, we have an opportunity to chat and while we do our exercises. Because it is so small, I also have thought many times about discontinuing my teaching there since it’s barely worth my time, gas, and effort to get there.
This week I decided that I would for sure keep the class because I so much enjoy catching up with these women and stretching with them. When I leave, I too feel less stressed, joyful, and ready to take on the world. We speak about health, our bodies, our husbands, and just life in general.
It reminds me of that saying “It’s Not Where You Go, But Who You Travel With”. The time, gas, and effort to teach this class is by far exceeding by the value I get from leading it.
