Gumsaba Yoga is has kicked off with a couple of great sessions. I am honored to teach this very unique and wonderful group of kind people. One of the participants came to me after class last week and explained that she had a mental shift after just one yoga class. She realized that she was listening more actively. What an amazing outcome from just one hour of commitment! Sometimes we forget the power of listening; I am guilty of it myself, tapping away at my electronic media of choice while Chad is trying to get my attention. I get so immersed – like most humans I have become an expert at multi tasking. So let us step back in time and learn a little bit about the ART OF LISTENING.

Listening is at the heart of a very important communication skill called empathy and is one of the most integral parts of our growth and learning. Unlike hearing, listening is focused and active. It can be applied to sound and feeling. Listening has been built into our genetics through storytelling. Notice how I started this piece with a story… there is a reason why and it was to get your attention! Maybe I should try starting every class with a story!

Happy Fun Friday everyone! Gumsaba LOVES YOU and loves to listen to your feedback. Give it to us through our survey or talk to coaches about what you are loving and what you aren’t so that we can be the best healthy community possible!
