Hey there yogis! The time between my last post and this one is the amount of time between when I had yoga class! Oh my gosh. Too long. MUCH too long. The good news, though is that tonight was teacher training and there are pretty sweet classes over the next few days. So, no complaints here (unless of course, I am prevented from going to yoga because of work… then I will be a crazy person).
Tonight we got our first real taste of teaching yoga to people. We learned about 10 poses last week and were each assigned one to teach the class. There are about 18 people in the class, so it is actually pretty close to the size of some classes. Then, we broke into groups of two and taught the poses to each other. It was a-m-a-z-i-n-g. My partner and I spent a lot of time going through the poses – teaching, learning about the ways to get each of us into the posture appropriately. It is so exciting to witness someone actually get into a pose the way it is meant to be done for the first time. The way their eyes light up is just… I cannot even describe it.
Well, this yogini is exhausted, but has a light and happy heart. Off to bed I go to dream about helping people achieve their dreams. Namaste.
