"Eli's words began to dance throughout her yoga instruction, her words were what I needed to hear in that moment. The statement that stuck was "get over yourself" (said in a playful and relatable manner). I immediately became present and looked at her. I wanted to get off my mat and give her a hug. A week of self-loathing and all I needed to hear was "stop"! Step away from being so self-involved, and BE! I'd been a helicopter mom, nagging myself for a week straight and Eli dropped in to tell that piece of myself, to chill out!
I'd gained much from the workshop."
