Last night’s yoga classes were full of discussion about what was being experienced in postures or what was not being experienced due to restrictions in the body. My intention when I teach is to allow students to find their own experience but from last night what I heard was that students would like more guidance and feedback. In not wanting to be goal-oriented or place expectations on individuals I think I have gone too far the other way and made practices rather loose – perhaps more sukha than sthira.
Next week we will continue with the practice of engagement and bringing awareness to the breath and the relationship with the body. To deepen the experience we need more time working with a posture. I will teach fewer shapes and let’s see what evolves.
Life’s full of learning. Thank you for being engaged – completely in line with our theme for this term!
