“We learn through experience and experiencing, and no one teaches us anything. If the environment permits it, anyone can learn whatever he chooses to learn; and if the individual permits it, the environment will teach him everything it has to teach.” Viola Spolin
This has been a re-occurring thought for me recently. We learn by experience. It is something Eric and I have always done and Marin Power Yoga is a GREAT example of how we learn. We are small enough to develop new good habits and nimble enough to shed the habits that do not serve the community. Every day, the studio and the community open our minds and fill it with knowledge. Whether it is how to run the business, improve the schedule or clean the bathroom – we approach each task with arms wide open to embrace the opportunity.
Why am I sharing this with you? It is my wish for you and your yoga practice. We are creating a space for you to explore yoga. Whether you come for the physical “workout” or for the mental “space” or for the company…just show up. Walk thru the door and learn by experience. Deepen your relationship with your body and you will experience stronger connections with every person you are with – from your family to co-workers to friends.
I spend a lot of time at the studio. Why? Because I have a lot to learn. Every day I am experiencing this with you. I am on my mat, practicing what we preach. Doing the work. Growing. What do you have to do? Just show up.
