Tonight I got to go teach yoga to a group of girls ranging in ages from 8 to 12.
They were super cute and enthusiastic. And it was a great time. Plus, I got to get a little bit preachy about health and physical fitness. And that always makes me happy.
Total Joyful Moment experience, though it was almost deterred by the hubcap falling off of a tire on HH's car while I drove to the activity. Fortunately, I saw it and was able to hop out and get it. Never a dull moment.
Wishing you all Joyful Moments in whatever pose brings you peace!
P.S. While looking up some stuff to help inspire these young girls to a lifetime of physical activity and wellness, I came across this quote. It's from the 1800's, so the language is a little funny, but I love it!
Brigham Young, 2nd President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints:
"Instead of doing two days' work in our day, wisdom would dictate to [the Saints], that if they desire long life and good health, they must, after sufficient exertion, allow the body to rest before it is entirely exhausted. When exhausted, some argue that they need stimulants in the shape of tea, coffee, spirituous liquors, tobacco, or some of those narcotic substances which are often taken to goad on the lagging powers to greater exertions. But instead of these kind of stimulants they should recruit by rest. Work less, wear less, eat less, and we shall be a great deal wiser, healthier, and wealthier people than by taking the course we now do. "
