When I first set foot into Anja's Sunday evening Open XL class from outer space, it seemed like everybody else in the room was a) female, b) only half my age, and c) a former ballet dancer (not that I will ever complain …). It was embarrassing to say the least. I felt completely out of place. But despite all the embarrassment I stayed, practiced, and even went on to become a teacher. Since then a lot of time has passed, and I remain forever indebted to my teachers Anja, Dechen, Sharon & David and last but not least Petros, who showed me so many times, that with great love everything is possible.
