Any yoga teacher knows the feeling when no one shows up to your yoga class. It’s disappointing, annoying, & heartbreaking. You immediately think, “No one likes me anymore….. Maybe everyone thinks I’m awful at teaching…..or in my own personal case I think….. It’s because I’m fat. ” First, I know I’m not fat I’m thick and deliciously attractive looking. But, the thought still crosses my mind in certain situations. Well, I didn’t have anyone show up for one of my classes tonight and I felt all these feelings. And well I’m broke (Thank you federal taxes) and really needed the money. But, just my luck…. no one showed up. But, my mom came with me to help me setup and take class. While I setup the room she goes for a walk around the building. As the time got to 7pm, it was only my mom and I in the room. So, when it became 7:02PM I turn to my mom and said, “Do you want a private yoga session?” My mom finally agreed to it, I turned the music on, and away the session went. So, for the next 40 minutes I helped my mom into different restorative yoga possess. Side note, my mom has a bad back, bad rotator cuff, and is blind in one eye. She never sits down and is hard for her to relax. So, after the yoga session she helped me pack up and was generous enough to fill up my gas tank (I was running on empty). It turned out to be a nice night…. Even though I didn’t have anyone show up to my class. So I guess the moral of the story is even though mothers are a pain in the asana we love them anyway.
Have a great week and I will see you on your mat!
