Yoga Update (Peaceful Fulfillment)

by on Apr.07, 2009, under Yoga

Couple of new items in my progress as a student and teacher of yoga: a couple of folks at the Ashtanga studio where I study made some remarks over the weekend about me teaching there some day. Since I have the utmost respect for the the teachers at the Shala, this is a high compliment indeed. I am also on tap for teaching another yoga class at the local gym–the one I substituted at last week. I found it a little daunting, since it was a more advanced class (still mixed level, to some degree) and some of the students were skilled practitioners whom I’ve practiced with, so, a tough audience. I must’ve acquitted myself well then.

On a more physical front, I’m really feeling the power and serenity of a strong breath during my practice. I’ve heard people say something like “the breath will lead you through the poses,” but its another thing entirely to really feel it, like I’ve been doing lately. Perhaps it is a milestone, or just an isolated phenomenon; I’m not trying to analyze it…I’m just enjoying the feeling and being fully present at that moment.
