We had our yoga teacher training graduation yesterday. It was really lovely. The best part for me is seeing how much people really "get" yoga if you give them the teachings and then sort of just leave them with that. The way we did the course allows people to go to the source of yoga. So it's not being taught from the outside in, but from the inside out. It's really cool.
This year we did way more sharing as I've found in the past people didn't really get a chance to share as much as I would have liked. We also gave full-on homework in the yamas and niyamas, and that's really where you can find yoga. In the Olden Days you couldn't even start yoga postures until you'd been working the do's and don'ts of yoga.
So yoga is way more about tools for living than postural alignment details. The yamas and niyamas are like alignment details for our lives (they're in the sidebar to the right).
I'm proud. And tired!
