In my hospital job, it is customary for my manager Nora to print out letters of appreciation that we occasionally receive from our patients. In honor of that tradition, and as yoga teachers we know it is even less frequent, I am posting a recent email I received from a student. To all the yoga teachers and health care providers, take it in.

Hi Laura,
Thanks for that amazing class. I feel like I had a massage, stretch, and was brought into balance. So far so good. Hope I can hold onto that feeling. Opening up and twisting is so good for the soul. Eric’s horizon imagery was powerful. It is a memorable image and all around lesson, reminding us not to take the present for granted.
