365 Challenge Day 212 – Yoga Teacher Training

22 Jan

Today we spent the whole day at the studio.  We took the 9am class (phew!  much better than 7am for me) and the 11am class.  I was so happy I had some trail mix and some coffee to sip in between!  Well, actually I gulped it.  I could feel the whole cup sloshing in my stomach as we went into forward fold.

After class we only had a 20 minute break for lunch, and then back into the studio.  We spent a lot of time practicing teaching one on one with another teacher trainee.  We got through the whole sequence although the end is definitely a bit choppy and needs more practice.

We also spent a fair amount of time learning about the seven chakras.  This all seems totally normal to me, but I wonder what the other trainees think, there must be some there who just want to use yoga as an exercise and are wondering what the heck a chakra is.

We have two homework assignments, read another two chapters in the Bhagavad Gita, okay, and watch the movie Castaway with Tom Hanks.  Wait, what?!  The assignment has to with paying attention to his relationship to time.

Oh, and a third assignment, to send our teacher our birth information, date, time, location, so she can do our astrological charts : )
