Monday I was looking at Facebook which had suggested a "memory" from my past. On July 11, 2012 I posted that I had taught my first yoga class! Four years ago! Since then I have taught floor and chair yoga on a regular basis! Sometimes 3 times a day. I am probably more confident than that day 4 years ago, but some things don't change. As back then, I rely on God to help me plan my lessons and to teach. I still need to read, learn and practice yoga. I still look at my teaching, assessing for changes....like our personal yoga practice, teaching yoga is a growing process. My yoga teaching practices grow all the time. I love when I come up with a new way to describe a newance in a pose. I love to learn new poses or new combinations of poses.
Lately, I have been assessing where I would like to go from here. I have decided not to pursue a 500 hour certificate as I have not found one that I like. So, I will take training in specialty areas. Would like to find training in Laughter Yoga, Yoga Nidra, and yoga for people with special needs.
Recently, I have reconnected with Kathy and Jess who graduated from Kind Yoga with me. They are taking some of yoga classes at the YMCA! I enjoy having them in class but it seems a bit weird to teach them!
Praying that God will guide me in my teaching in the next year.
I enjoy yoga as it brings peace to my life. Teaching yoga has brought joy to my life and given me a chance to encourage others in learning yoga.
