«I was taking some kind of «Relax Year» after finishing my career (I started working as a Journalist when I was studying) and I want to take a year off to relax and learn English (I didn’t know any English on that time, just the regular grammar of the public school).
Someone called me and asked me to teach a yoga class in a Hotel in the area, they needed a yoga instructor for that day and it was a kind of «emergency», because their instructor was sick or something like that.
I just did it and It was my first yoga class (I didn’t know English and they didn’t know Spanish, I remember that my only vocabulary was: Left, right, up, down, thank you and tips – hahaha) We had a fun time and they were so happy with the class. I still teach yoga for that Hotel».
