This post was held up in my draft posts. I guess I never finalized in published it. Although I intend to keep the original publication date, the two month mark is now way behind us; it’s now nearly eight months since Erika left us. Mojdeh is no longer “our new teacher”. She is simply “our teacher.”
Today marks the two month mark since my teacher, Erika, formally announced she was leaving the studio. A lot can happen in two months. A lot of emotions. A lot of healing too.
We recently learned that Mojdeh, the yoga teacher who has been holding space for us in the interim, has agreed to stay on as our regular teacher. I am grateful and receptive to a new way of teaching the ashtanga yoga method that has become such an integral part of my life.
