Happy April Fool’s Day! I decided to have a little fun with my hot class tonight at Flow. After the chair series, I instructed the class of 50 students to find a partner, extend their arms out and give their partner a hug. The entire class looked puzzled. About one third of the students reluctantly embraced each other, some with smiles. I giggled and announced “April Fool’s” as the entire class burst out laughing. Before that moment, the class was completely serious, which wasn’t bad. Students should focus on their Drishti and breath but at the same time, why are we practicing together if we are only going to ignore each other? We have a beautiful community of practitioners and can all encourage each other to show up to our mats. I believe in laughter, and we could all use more of it.
