In four weeks, I didn’t always want to but you required me to show up everyday for morning practice and demonstrated the power of commitment, determination and dedication. You also demonstrated the power, of a fit body and clear mind.
All I can say is: Core, baby!
You attracted all the colourful people I like to be around and made me feel welcome and accepted.
When things got tough, you encouraged me to go for it, making me believe I could do it, and… I did do it!
You made me laugh with your commentary on life and remember that we’re in this together. “Ri-iight!!” ~Jesse
Because in life you gotta play to keep your spirit alive!
You let me see your radiant light and sometimes your shadow.
You taught me the building blocks for how to create my own acro moves and all the amazing possibilities from which you can be inspired. Just like you when you created Acroyoga!
Eug, thanks for bringing the B-boy, the music and mostly, the yogi to the practice.
Jesse, your keen observation of the special qualities in others told me you saw the best in us while keeping it real.
Each of us in some way was brought to our knees when life’s difficulties collided into our holy time together. And that was a part of our training this round. (Love you Jill)
And during those times, we all had to find a bigger part of ourselves to carry on.
We each taught something to one another and we were each other’s student.
Thank you Heidi for your grace in movement.
When the day ended, we sometimes found each other to play, to laugh, to cry, to be together a little longer. (The pool was awesome, thanks super-host Mac)
You gave me loving care when I needed it. (Lulu, love your artistry in thai massage)
You inspired me with your love of Acroyoga, your story and your life! (that’s for Everyone- yes, YOU)
We all are changed in some way from having known each other and I’m grateful for what I learned.
In your words, Eug:
Let my heart turn to practice
Let my practice become a path
Let this path dissolve confusion
Let confusion become wisdom
And may our asses have got thoroughly kicked but also, patted for a job well done!
