I am in the middle of the first week of my yoga teacher training. So far, we have worked on the sequence a little, getting through the integration. I have practiced almost every night guiding someone through that. I am more comfortable with it, and am beginning to get a feel for this.
We are required to take 10 classes at the studio during this course. I managed to get one in today. Now, only 9 more to go.
We learned some about the theory of Vinyasa sequencing. I have a better concept of what to put together to create a good flow. That will take some time and experimentation, but we have a sequence to start out with, which I can always change up a little once I start teaching.
We also started looking at Chakras. We started off that course of study doing a guided meditation, looking at each of our chakras. I didn't see anything, but others in the class had more success. I honestly think Tuesday nights are going to be the hardest (Chakra nights) because I will have already put in a full day at work. So far we have learned about the first chakra, the root chakra. Maybe I will do a post on that in a couple of days to see if I can process the information a little more.
For tomorrow, we have to memorize the Sun A section of the sequence so that we can lead it without a book. That will be a little more difficult. I feel like my memory is shot anymore. I already did my little bit of homework we had, responding to a question that was posted in our forum after reading an article.
For Sunday, I need to answer some questions about the book How Yoga Works. We will be having our first book club. I completed the book, so I just need to go back through it some to refresh my memory.
Until next time,
