One Simple Way to Say I Love You Without Saying I Love You

One Simple Way to Say I Love You Without Saying I Love You

Let me ask you - 

Is there someone in your life that for some reason or another, you have difficulty saying "I love you" to them? And you want to. But the words just refuse to come out of your lips.

This is not a review of the Baptiste level 3 training. Instead I share with you my learnings, my discoveries, my experiences and my reflections from this yoga life teacher training. Warning: It’s a very long post.
