The first yoga class I ever taught was on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day 2 years ago. I remember being SO nervous, my palms were sweaty and I had repeated the sequence over in my head a thousand and one times. I made the perfect playlist and tried my best to keep cool. It didn’t really work, my voice was shaking the entire time.
There’s not a lot of things I’ll repeat from that initial class, but one thing I’m going to do the exact same is share Dr. Kings final speech on April 3rd 1968 - in savasana. Maybe it’s kind of weird to do in a yoga class, but personally, I think it’s the perfect time to hear it, and it’s the perfect time to remind people to keep the faith, always fight for what’s right, and never lose hope in unconditional love.

if you can’t run, then walk,
if you can’t walk, then crawl,
but whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward.”
