Life is Full of Little Miracles | Yoga at the Waterfall
So today was a great day! I held two classes one at a loveal gym for beginners and my HOT Rock Your Abs at Yoga 4 Love, then came home to teach my fave class, Outdoor Yoga at the Waterfall with Amy and Christina, co teaching with me!
Christina Cathey and Amy Middleton came from far N Dallas to guest teach with me for the first time ever!
On the way home from my studio, I stopped at the little store by my house that they are remodeling. Rich has been eyeing this huge pile of gravel and wanted to see if we could ask if we can have some to fill our driveway. I saw workers there and asked the guy. He didn’t speak English so got his boss. I tally know the dude, Ted, from Aspen’s old soccer team. He said that we could have the piles of rock but even better… his neighbor, George, just called and he recently bought a brand new tractor. He wanted to come play in is dirt pile and said that he would dump it in our driveway for us! Well, I showed him the 1/10 mile drive that has this huge hump in the middle and my car bottoms out, then under our carport where the river washed out the rock and it is uber bumpy. He said he would start there and see if he had some left to put up at the street where my car bottoms out when I turn in.
Several of the yoginins brought their kids. We went down to the creek to go teach the class and had a really great turnout. Christina started the flow, Amy did a crescent warrior series and ended in fish pose. Kids in the creek, playing, birds singing, blue sky, puffy clouds, the waterfall. So nice. It was really wonderful, the energy was so great, having three teachers. We were able to move around the group and do hands on adjustments, while the other was teaching, and then also keep an eye on the kiddos. In the middle of the class the three littlest boys came near us and I heard them go HEY GUYS LOOK AT THE SPHYDERS! Then said THOSE ARENT SPHYDERS THOSE ARE TARANTHULASTH!
Christina went on mom duty, wading in the river with the kids, and hung with them so they would calm down. She had them all on a huge rock teaching them how to OM. The mini yogini girls said that they did a girl power OM. Too cute.
The construction guys came and I saw them looking for me. I went up the path while Amy was teaching, and then saw that George had totally went to town on our entire driveway! He cleared the whole thing and started grading it with a blade, making it even.
I returned as Amy was wrapping up her flow and led the group through a guided Reiki Chakra meditation in Savasana.
The kids and went to play in the water while we took some pix. Amy stated that this is the beauty of yoga, being able to be a moms and teach a class. Integration of all parts of our lives into one happy cocktail makes a very balanced Yogi.
We had a lovely brunch with a Champagne and Pinot toast, interesting conversation and made new friends. Rich connected with the group and enjoyed talking to a guy from N Dallas, originally from Iran, that came with Amy and Christina, who made some culinary delights for the group!
I showed the mini yoginis my organic garden and how to harvest veggies. we all picked fresh lettuce and spinach for everyone to take bags of salad home with them.
Everyone left and George continued getting more rock and then even topped it off with a bunch of loads of dirt! He smoothed it over, taking about 4 hours! We sat on the back of Ted’s pickup with old timer, Mr West. I offered them a few beers and they stayed to talk to Rich while George had a blast tearing up the land. This is such a blessing, as we had this work estimated a year or two ago and it would have been several thousand $ dollars! We hung out, me having a few more glass of Champagne as they talked about guy stuff and had another beer or two.
It looks amazing.
Later, went to pick up Aspen from a friend’s and the girls got on the car as we were leaving, they did an OM rap seated on the top of my car. Too funny.
Life is full of little miracles.
I am so grateful that I live the life of my Truth, walking in alignment with my Creator. I am thankful that I am led by Source to bring happiness and joy to my community through the Gifts given of leadership, teaching and direct connection to the Universal Flow + the ability to share that Energy for Light, Love and Peace.
