Yoga Journal #10: Tiny Progress

Taught husband his second yoga lesson last night and can already see such a huge difference in how his body is responding to the postures as his mind gets a bit more used to the positions – especially downward dog. (I’m not even kidding). Did some meditation with some crystals next to me this morning…

Yoga Journal #9: Man Teaching

Taught Warr Surya Namaskara A and Surya Namaskara B last night – he did SO well – am so impressed! It is quite difficult teaching someone who is so tight because it is much harder to make adjustments on a body that feels locked – or at least there are less adjustments and more modifications.…

Yoga Journal #8: No Worms.

Only got out of bed late this morning – maybe my body needs it after a full weekend of yoga (or maybe I’m just being lazy). It’s definitely way more physically taxing than I thought – always feel so irritated with myself when I get out of bed late. Either need to change my thinking…

Yoga Journal #7: Speaking in Public

Raoul’s yoga class was such a workout – quite amazing that two yoga classes with essentially the same postures can be so different in the way that they feel. I like them both – but am wondering where my own personal teaching style will fit into along this scale! We had to teach one posture…

Yoga Journal #6: Sleek Physique

The day seemed to go really quickly today – felt like there was a big emphasis on the Savasana which was AWESOME. It feels good to just be. Had an anatomy test in class today and knew all of it – which was reassuring since I hadn’t learnt anything (although the quick revision on the…

Yoga Journal #5: The Universe

No Yoga this morn but did 15 min meditation using Headspace. I went to a YouTube workshop last night – in the “luck factor” book it talks about being “open” and about striking up conversations with strangers wherever you go – in the grocery queue, on the train, at the bus station, waiting for coffee –…

Yoga Journal #4: Social Destruction

Did a longer yoga session last night and felt good – 3 Sun Salutations A and 3 Sun Salutations B – followed by a bit of playing around on the mat. Woke up at 6 early this morn and went straight to twitter and wasted an hour of my life. Just before 7 felt a…

Yoga Journal #3: Luck Factor

Did a bit of evening yoga last night  – waiting for Warren to get home – definitely have more energy in the evenings. Woke up and read in bed this morning (rather than look at my phone first thing) Did two quick sun salutation then sat for a 15 min meditation – felt way more…

Yoga Journal #2: Mornings

Woke up at 6am and decided to do a sun salutation – I’m not a morning person at all – so really have to motivate myself to practice at this time! I did about 3 Surya Namaskaras and then my body decided it was done. (Mostly it was my mind though) so I lay down…

Yoga Journal #1: insecurities.

[fusion_text] First full weekend of training done – so super excited! On the Sunday of training we were required to teach someone a basic sun salutation and I must say that I froze up a bit. With the exception of the odd class here and there – the majority of the yoga practice that I…
