Many years ago when I first began to teach yoga, I would make class notes and never veer from them.........most often these days, even though I make class notes, they are often pushed aside.
I have learned to listen to the students as they walk through the door, and then teach or at least try to teach what they need for that day. I am a much better teacher for trusting my instincts.
Often I find that I think I am teaching what the students needs and it turns out to be what I needed too. That was the case today......for my second class I taught a heart opening class.......turns out I needed the heart opening as much as everyone else did. I am as guilty as anyone when it comes to compassion for myself........I have loads of it for others and some days none for me. I found a little for myself in class today.
It is Friday, closure for what has been a good, trying, stressful, sad, happy week......to top it off, Rick had a root canal today......and the forty degree temps the weather guys promised for tomorrow.......Ha! they were only teasing........lows back in the teens tonight, highs in the mid-thirties tomorrow and rain Sunday. Wow, am I glad I now have a car with heated seats.
Wishing you all a weekend that is grand in every way......a fun filled Saturday, a peaceful Sunday......and many hugs in between.
Goodnight, Sweet dreams
