Personally I was never a person who enjoyed yoga and was never able to get into the flow. When I joined Misty’s class in September 2020 I was skeptical and apprehensive of the process. Since the start of class I have found increased mobility and flexibility especially in my hips and shoulders. Misty, has an easy and adaptable way of describing the positions and expectations for the each student.
I just want to take the opportunity to thank you for going on this yoga practice journey with me. When I began, I was unsure if I would be able to “do" yoga. When I think about that now, three months later, I chuckle; I had this TV picture in my head about what yoga “needed" to look like and quite frankly, the intimidation of what that looked like kept me from trying for a long time.
Thank you for providing a safe space and atmosphere to practice; being patient with me and teaching me that what I can do that day, is ok and enough; for breaking down and explaining the components of the poses; for adapting the pose when I am struggling; for encouraging me to try a new pose when I don’t think I can do it; for reminding me that it’s ok to take time for myself and to be present. Your guidance has been invaluable and I am so glad you are my teacher as I continue with my yoga practice.
So a quick shout out to Misty. Tonight for the first time in all my yoga time I felt confident enough to lock myself in a room, turn on some music, light a couple of candles and run a yoga session. I forgot warm ups and went back a did them, but I did it and stretched out by sore back too. Thanks Misty for being such a great teacher and giving me the confidence to try.
Misty is an extraordinary teacher, from the moment she comes online and welcomes participants to class, she establishes an environment of kindness, trust and gratitude...She eases the students into poses, step by step; clearly explaining the purpose of the pose, what area of the body will benefit and why it is important to overall health and wellness. Each pose is demonstrated with adaptations to suit individual levels of student experience, ability and body composition...I've learned so much from this amazing woman!
