feedback from 3rd graders

back again with the cuteness….

my yoga practice and my propensity for wanting to teach others a yoga practice has taken me to some pretty interesting places – from yoga practice in meeting rooms of local churches on indy’s east side to yoga practice with celebrities at the democratic national convention, it’s been a wild ride. but, one of the experiences i cherish the most is bringing yoga classes into my children’s school.  kids are gifted yogis; often hilarity ensues, and they give the best feedback.

“dear mrs. daugherty, i hope you have had a nice year. i really do like yoga. i never knew that i liked yoga. i like to stretch and that was one of my favorite parts. but, my favorite part was the relaxing part at the end. i was almost asleep. sincerely, zoe”

“dear mrs. daugherty, thank you so much for teaching us yoga. the funnest thing was when we layed down and relaxed at the end. you are awesome. sincerely, george”

“dear mrs. daugherty, i loved doing the warrior poses. they were fun. the crow pose was very comfortable. i am going to try to sign up for yoga.  thanks for coming. sincerely, avery”

“dear mrs. daugherty, thank you for letting us do yoga. it was the best relaxing time. we want to do it some time again. sincerely, ben”

“dear mrs. daugherty, thank you for coming in to teach us yoga. it helped me in soccer. sincerely, ethan”

“dear mrs. daugherty, i liked doing the yoga. i wish we could have tried to do the splits. you are the best yoga teacher. sincerely, mitchell”

“dear mrs. daugherty, thank you for taking your time to teach us. my favorite part was when we got to lay down for rest time. i have never ever in my entire life seen someone do yoga better than that. sincerely, owen”

“dear mrs. daugherty, i love yoga so much. my favorite part was when we lay down and close our eyes and you ring the bell. i do yoga at home. i like the hard poses because they are really cool. sincerely, carson”

“dear mrs. daugherty, thank you so much for the yoga. the part i liked best was when i was laying down and you rung the chimes.  it was so quiet that it surprised me! i loved it. love, parker”

“dear mrs. daugherty, i can’t wait until our next yoga lesson. i loved all the moves, especially the arabesque. yoga is a fun way to exercise. sincerely, ainsley”

“dear mrs. daugherty, thank you for showing me some new things about yoga. i am going to do some of it every night. there were a lot of things that i liked, even the pose where you had to touch your toes. thank you for teaching me some new tricks. sincerely, arrion”

and finally…..

“dear mrs. daugherty, i really liked yoga even though we didn’t do the candlestick pose. some of the poses were very easy, some were kind of hard.  i liked the tree best of all. i also liked laying down and resting. it felt like i was actually asleep. sincerely, lee-ann”

needless to say, i am quite blessed. cheers! love, lisa d
