So I taught my "official" first yoga class today at the gym. It was a good sized class (around 13 people)
Had some things to get used to (the cd player, lights, air)
I made a good attempt to remind students about the principles of yoga (the foundation) being the breath, listening to your body, going over any injuries.
We worked on sun salutations, a lot of forward folds and a few hip openers. Lots of modifications and it was all around fun; with the only negative comment made was about the loud music from the body sculpt class next door in the aerobics room. Which is to be expected. They were rockin' out! :)
After class everyone clapped; which was different :)
I did close the class with Namaste'. After class I had a few students ask questions about DVDs, Books and if I taught somewhere else.
It was a good experience and I really enjoyed it.
This just solidifies the fact that this is what I love to do and I really really want to do for as long as I possibly can. :)
I also have the books for the Stephanie Keach's 230 hour. So I can start reading and prepare myself. In case (cross my fingers) I can afford to do the 230 hour later this year or next year.
I need to clean the house and not much else! Tomorrow we are planning to go to Zazen then to see a movie.
I hope everyone else is having a great weekend!
