My 2021 year in review29 December 2021
Since May 17th 2021 when the government lifted its restrictions to allow in-person yoga classes I have taught over 170 classes and 129 yogis. I honestly can not believe it. When I completed my yoga teacher training and then subsequent specialised trainings, I had no idea who, if anyone would come along!
I scheduled a Beginners Course and that sold out within three days, so I arranged another one and the same thing happened. I think in those first six weeks I ran three Beginners Courses concurrently trying to keep up with demand. One thing I was adamant about was not having a large number of people in my classes. When I have attended classes myself and there is a high volume of people, the personal attention from the teacher is lost.
I have met some truly inspirational people, they have formed my yogi tribe and I am absolutely honoured they continue to practise with me.
We have laughed, mixed up our left and right (me more than them!) and have practised together and bonded. I have certainly grown as a teacher, they have increased their confidence, strength, flexibility and mobility. I see the differences in each and every one and this has made me so fulfilled and filled up my happy cup as my daughter likes to say. I know they feel these changes in how their body moves and also I know many of them are experiencing the benefits. A few have remarked their back pain has disappeared, or they are feeling muscle groups they didn’t realise they had and also they are sleeping better too!
What more could I ask for as a yoga teacher?(more…)
