One of the best decisions I've made in a long time is to work one-on-one with a yoga/meditation teacher on a weekly basis. My intention for this was two fold; a) develop a greater understanding of yoga as a whole to be a better teacher and educator, b) provide an opportunity for my personal practice to be more full.
Each week I come away with a greater depth of knowledge toward this wonderful practice. And that's exactly what it is, a practice. I say this because there truly is no end point. There is an infinite number of explorations one could take. Anything from anatomy, philosophy, sequencing, dharma, meditation, variations, breath work, base of support coupled with series of actions. All of this has helped me learn more about how I move, how I think, how I breathe, how I act.
This photo represents much of what I am learning. The stick figures help create a visual layout of variations of poses in a way for me to explore progressions. This incorporated with breath work and meditation have helped my practice become more full.
I would love to share what I've learned with you.
