Nice touch Coach Al.

Even in ancient times, Yoga practice was much more than an exercise class. Many of the quickie fitness organizations missed the boat and sent poorly trained exercise instructors off to the slaughter. The truth is you have to take the time to study Yoga, continue to study, and observe the needs of your students. The end of a Yoga class is not a group high five and hugging Billy Blanks on the way out the door.

The little extras make a Yoga class worth coming to. Recently, I visited the new Aura Wellness Center in Attleboro. It was a mid-day Saturday class. Paul was doing an all day Yoga teacher workshop and Marie was teaching a Pilates / Yoga mix. Everything runs seamlessly, the lighting, aroma, and how they exchanged rooms was like I was in a Yoga park.

Marie ended her class with a foot massage after meditation. We had a choice: Orange/ ginger lotion for those who would be active or Lavender lotion for those who wanted to wind down.

I chose Ginger and had a vegetarian lunch with the visiting Yoga teachers. I didn't want that day to end and hung out with the other teachers until 3:00 in the afternoon.

You are on to something here Coach, but the person who is a host or hostess must love people. Otherwise, it will be a frustration. Those who seek quick money from Yoga will not be teaching Yoga classes for long.

Om Shanti
