Teaching

As a beginner, I was so excited when the teacher introduced a new pose. I loved the challenge (& thrill) of learning something completely and utterly new. My first yoga teacher took me to places I had never been. I caught glimpses of possibilities. I found stillness and quiet for the first time in my life. I was in awe of the depth of the subject matter.

Yoga still excites me and I remain in awe of it. I have been a yogi for more than half of my life and yet I still feel like a beginner in so many respects.

It is something I will not 'master' in this lifetime and truthfully, I don't want to. I like having something truly awesome in my life. Something I can't quite ever put my finger on.

Yes, I can tell you the philosophy, the benefits & all about the asanas (poses)....but it is never quite enough. There is always so much more for me to learn and share.

I am also a full time primary school teacher. My job is to break things down and share them. To teach, to enthuse, excite, stretch, challenge, support and encourage. I share a learning journey with many little people every day.

A teacher is never 'done'. There is no end. There is always more. For myself and the people I share with.

At school and on the yoga mat, I am content if I ignite a spark, fan a flame and provide fuel for the lifelong passion that is learning.

Sorry guys...I'm afraid I have to cancel tonight's class. I'm really not feeling well.
