The five women in Crane Yoga School reinvigorated my love for teaching. Each week, we met for about 8 hours of hard work, laughter, philosophizing, and camaraderie. In they end, they taught well curated, humble, nurturing, and healing classes like pro's. I can't wait for them to go into the yoga world and teach. We were lucky enough to have a killer adjunct faculty this year with Nikki Villela, Lauren Haythe, Ali Cramer, Erin Dudley, Margherita Tisato, Hira Lesea, and Lindsay Ashmun. I thank each and every one of them for helping steer the Crane Yoga School ship.
John O'Donohue said, "Though the human body is born complete in one moment, the birth of the human heart is an ongoing process. It is being birthed in every experience of your life. Everything that happens to you has the potential to deepen you. It brings to birth within you new territories of the heart." The experience of leading a training "birthed within" me new territories of my heart. I didn’t know I could love teaching so much. These women were focused, humble, intelligent, radiant. And I was lucky to be able to absorb some of their light as we studied together.
