(From a yoga teacher graduate of our angelic healer course):
I'd like to share an experience with you that I had just this last week.
I was teaching at (...) and a lady came in to my 730 hot (...) class. As [the] studio is new and just building clientele - it was only her and I in the class.
I asked what she wanted to work on - she mentioned her hips and shoulders. I said "sounds good to me." and got started.
I wasn't 100% sure what her level of yoga was, but i thought to myself, "well I should probably focus on being magnetized to tap into my intuition/divinity/the angelic river and just do some basic poses, affirmations and set the tone of love and joy."
We went through the entire hour long class and as I approached the 55 min mark I had a moment of uncertainty as to whether or not she was really "feeling it". It was hard to tell because, well, for one it was dark and two she was fairly quiet.
But as the 57 min mark hit I guided her through some very basic controlled inhales and exhales for the next minute or so.
As she was lying there in shavasana - continuing to breathe - there was an overwhelming sense of peace and reassurance that came over me. Almost like my inner self was saying, "Good job, damn good job."
To my pleasant surprise, As she came out of the hot room my curiosities were answered.
She told me how I really helped her stay aligned in down dog, and how she never had worked so hard just holding the warrior pose. (keep in mind i did zero hands on adjustments the whole class - its almost as if when i saw her practicing I just felt like the verbal alignment ques were the exact ones she was looking for).
But then the best part came...
As I unlocked the door for her to leave she said, "oh and the breathing exercise you did at the end! I don't know what it was, but i just felt like crying, it was beautiful. I was trying to hold back the tears because I didn't want to be just sobbing in class."
I mentioned to her that if that ever happens to simply let it go, and let it all out. She smiled at me, I smiled back and she walked out to her car.
And that was it. That moment I had of my inner voice telling me, "good job" was in the exact moment that she felt like crying. I remember feeling a warm sensation in my heart area for her... Like a feeling of alleviation and joy all in one.
To come full circle here, this experience I shared with this student is rooted in the teachings you and Michael provided during the (angelic healer course).
So this is me, saying thank you, thank you to you both.
