The journey of becoming a yoga teacher.
This weekend, as we delved deeper into assisting, I am grateful for the knowledge and patience of others in the class. As we work together, helping each other with assisting, we get glimpses into our own strengths and weaknesses and those of our classmates.
My partner this week was especially patient and helpful, as we assisted each other in various poses. There is so much to remember in terms of what assists to do for each pose, the degree of pressure to use, and which direction to push or pull or lift.
So, practicing with each other is invaluable and I’m so glad we get ample class time to do this.
Lauren’s focus on energy work keeps us grounded and relaxed. Her grace and ease at demonstrating assists remind us that, in time, they will come as naturally to us as they do to her. But that is hard to fathom, as we are so new at it. Looking forward to more weekends of learning and practicing assisting, to hone my skills and boost my confidence.
