The Gift of Mentoring
"It's humbling and takes more bravery to not have an answer," says Morrice, who respects Lasater for engaging her students in conversations on topics that don't have clear conclusions.
Ultimately, the best mentors tend to be those who see the role as a service to the yoga community, rather than as a chance to feel important or disperse their workload. Morrice now has assistants of her own, and she sums up the experience this way: "I was given a gift. I'm just happy to pass that gift along."
