… check out the yoga blog. I wrote about teaching my very own yoga class this last Saturday.
I am, rather unsurprisingly, at home in the teacher role though I recognize my newbie-ness. Teaching something new is a challenge and my innate ability only carries me so far.
Tonight I start restorative and I think that rehab, stress relief and just overall coaxing people into better habits, mindsets and onto the mat in general as a lifestyle is probably my yoga teacher calling.
Cat, my Yoga Works instructor, talked about how exhausting teaching could be. And it is. I was dog tired Saturday night, but I went to class yesterday afternoon and plan to attend the Sattva class that follows my restorative tonight.
If all goes according to plan (and nothing of the kind has happened for a good two months now so I am not holding my breath for this or anything), I will teach four classes a week and attend 5 yoga classes on my own.
Ambitious? Perhaps. But I have plans.
