This is not the end, it is the beginning of a new yoga journey
We graduated. Diploma’s, kisses, hugs and everything. It was intense, an emotional and physical roller coaster and bubble that now ceases to exist.
Today I taught my first class! I have never ever experienced such focus, for a full 94 (oh oh…) minutes. I was in another zone, only there to serve my students with my words, presence and energy. How did it go?
No clue….It flew by. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to teach right away, fresh from training. I can bring everything I have learned immediately into practice. My feedback remains the same; more dialogue! Sometimes I was looking for words, to keep them in certain postures, other postures went smooth. Ryan advised me to study two postures after each class I teach; tonight it will be Trikanassana & Sassangasana. I think it went good for a first class.
Tomorrow, the day after and the day after that I have a chance to improve. And all the remaining days after that!
I felt shaky, not sure whether to cry or laugh. I came home and even threw up; all this tension just had to get out I suppose…. Crying and laughing at the same time.
5 Weeks ago I embarked on immersion training, now I’m transforming into a teacher. How exciting!
I would like to express my gratitude to my fellow trainees, to Zefea, Mark, Toddy, Pien and Christian. They have supported me so much to find my inner teacher, gain a deeper understanding of the series and postures. The training has been the best investment I have ever spent!
