2 weeks ago it was my birthday. I usually love to celebrate with a big party, but since it was in the middle of the teacher training, I just organized a little get together with my friends here in LA. It was so nice for once to celebrate with them, since I’m usually in my country for this event.
I was super happy because my boyfriend came all the way from Europe to celebrate with me. I wasn’t really comfortable sharing this with my other teacher trainees, because I don’t know them that much and I didn’t think they would be interested. But in the training with me, there is my dear friend Isabel, and she’s not the kind of person who takes no for an answer.
I was suspicious that something might be organized behind my back, specially because I discovered that it was Rochelle’s (another trainee) birthday too. The D-day I received a message from Tamal, our teacher, and it became more and more obvious that something was going to happened. So when I stepped in the studio and that half of my fellow trainees came to hug me and wish me the best for this special day, I had no doubt that a cake will be involved at some point!
During our break they bring us the most delicious vegan cheesecake made by Sean, Rochelle and I were so happy. Stephen made me do acro yoga, we laughed a lot. I was really surprised by that kindness and generosity from people I’ve known for only 6 weeks! And that’s what the teacher training is about too: Bonding with some extraordinary people who share the same passion as you. I’m so grateful for that. Not only my practice is deepen in a way I couldn’t even dream of a year ago, but I hope I have found new friends for life!!
Of course Tamal quickly reminded us that it was training time, and I had the chance to practice inversions and arm balances for 2h30, and it was totally ok because I love that!!
Stay tuned for more shenanigans! Namaste.
