How to Stay Present in a Yoga Class

The most pleasant thing about being on book tour is taking a yoga class in a new and different place.  Yuko a yoga instructor at The Yoga Studio in Magnoli was lovely.  She knows how to make a guest feel warm and welcomed.  I went into the class feeling like a beginner and then it dawned on me. The best way to stay present in class is to be in unpredictable space. I watched how Yuko directed us into triangle and felt like I was doing it for the first time.  Because I didn’t know Yuko or the studio, I had to be present to participate. It was nice; and I even experienced a different version of the sun salutation. Life and yoga can be good when you don’t always know what is coming next. Thanks Seattle!
