Today was the last class of yoga teacher Nancy Leigh-Smith at Alameda Yoga Station. Yoga classes start and end and teachers move around but this class was special. For 7.5 years Nancy lovingly sang and danced us into various Asanas, and we loved the fun.
What is so heartfelt about the end of this era is that many of the students in the class have been together for more than 7.5 years. We've arrived, departed and returned to see each other on Saturdays from 8:30-10:00am. Before Nancy, we were people taking a class and with Nancy we became a community.
Thankfully, we have plans to see each other again and our yoga practices continue both at AYS and beyond.
I am grateful that this yoga community has become my home.
