This is a love note to O2 Yoga Somerville. Since beginning teacher training, I have been pretty much off the schedule in Somerville except for the Friday night intensives. My husband and I worked out a schedule for March and April where I am working Friday-Sunday (teacher training) and then he is down in Cambridge Monday-Thursday working on the new studio. In order to stay focused on my family I needed to come off the schedule during the week.
I have to tell you, it has been really difficult. I miss teaching my regular classes and seeing all of your smiling faces. We just got word from the city of Cambridge that we have been approved to open our new location on Mass Avenue! I am incredibly excited and also, of course, a bit overwhelmed. There is so much to do in the next couple months. That said, I finish up teacher training at the end of April and look forward to get back to teaching in Somerville on Thursday nights (my new time slot!). I will be teaching a Power and a Basics.
We will also be organizing another work party in Cambridge in the next few weeks so if you are interested in helping out, please let me know!
I received this email from one of the very special students, Tim Darr. Tim and his lovely wife Charlotte have been coming to O2 for years. They have always created a wonderful and warm presence in class. You may not realize this but, we teachers really love it when we can get smiles out of you guys! Sometimes everyone looks so serious. Anyway, Tim and Charlotte came to help paint a few weeks ago. They have also been checking in with me to see how things are progressing, and always offering help.
Congratulations!! Cambridge is known for it’s very tough zoning board. Again, let me know if there is anything we can do to help you out. You have a lot of hands reaching out to hold you up around here. Lots of people in the studio love you very much. TD”
I have read that 3 times and every time I tear up. Thank you Tim. And thanks to all of you dedicated Somerville students. It means a lot to me! My friends often get on my case about not asking for help. I promise to try to be better at it. There will be plenty of help needed in the coming weeks!
With Love and gratitude, Mimi
