Comparison

“Mandy shows us how much the power of laughter and love can transform! Her classes are always fun and meaningful.”

When I read a testimonial about my teaching my heart swells. Sometimes I am very hard on myself. Sometimes I compare myself to others. Sometimes I wonder if I should be teaching yoga at all, after all I’ve never even read the yoga sutras.

I read somewhere once that comparison is the thief of joy. I recite it often in class, probably for my own benefit as much as for my students.

Over the past few years my relationship with Yoga has shifted dramatically. There is less comparison and more joy. Collaboration, with others who inspire me and with myself, is paramount.
