Rae, “I want to convey to you how much I appreciate your guidance and practice in helping us focus inward and listen to our bodies. I push myself constantly at work and in my work outs and when I first tried yoga I learned that slowing down is hard, that “pushing” isn’t always the answer, and that yoga (unlike most other things in life) is not something you can muscle your way through. The benefits of yoga, and a teacher with the patience to guide us type A’s through the practice, have changed my life. I am more able to relax both on and off the mat and am more in tune with my body. Yoga continually surprises me. For example, when you placed blocks under my knees the other day in class and my initial thought was, “I don’t need those,” but once the blocks were there my body relaxed deeply, almost instantly, and once again I was humbled. Yoga challenges me to accept that my brain is not always in charge and to trust and listen to my body. Thank you Rae for guiding me in that practice you have a true gift. Namaste — Nicole”
