Week 1, February 27, 2013 – What did you learn?

February 24, 2013

When my son was much younger we used to play cards together. Whenever he had lots of different cards in is hands, he’d always say with excitement, “my hand is full of possibilities.” That’s how I felt about our first class, full of possibilities. I feel like I’ve been dealt a good hand.

I learned that all of us are participating in this class for similar reasons – for a sense of community, to connect with other yoga teachers, and to learn how to become better yoga teachers.  I was recently reading John O’Donohue’s Eternal Echoes which describes our need to belong as a divine restlessness and that when we are born into this human form, we are separated from our eternal source.  O’Donohue says we seek human connections because we are really seeking to get back in touch with our eternal or original source.  A great book if you’re interested (but not a cover-to-cover read).

I like Geri’s idea about how she will structure the class with some social time to start, a few minutes of meditation to set the tone, and then a different discussion each week tailored specifically to our needs.

Also enjoyed The Five Habit of Highly Effective Yoga Teachers. Please share your thoughts.
