Yoga Challenges

I have been teaching in some new ways lately.  Sort of going off the grid with yoga teaching in order to try and capture some interest from some new people.  It is interesting and kind of fun.

Some teenagers I work with make up their own yoga challenges for us to try in class.  If one of them can accomplish the feat, we all try it.  It makes yoga more of a game.

I am teaching one on one in a more corporate environment, too.  Getting people to just try that has been tricky.  So I started decorating and putting up a little stick figure yoga lesson on the dry erase board so that there is some sort of curriculum.  It met with some good response.

Yoga is so much fun.  It exposes so much about us to ourselves.  It is just a great way to observe the way we act and think and approach life.  And then, as we change our habitual postural patterns on the mat, those attitudes and beliefs might get adjusted or discarded, too.

In the book about Ayurveda and Yoga that I am reading, it talks about the importance of a healthy body as the basis for being able to transform consciousness to a higher level. (This book is mostly over my head, but that just means I will read it three times and finally understand it for real.)  And that is the main goal of life as far as Yoga is concerned.  Transform consciousness so you are radiating more like a god energy.  So you are less selfish and more compassionate.  So you are more helpful because that is what you want to be.  Not because you read it and grandma says you should.  But because you actually want to. 

I like helping people get healthier bodies.  I like working with lots of other people who also like helping people get healthier bodies.  It is cool to help people get better.

Jaeger-LeCoultre -- This Grande Reverso Extra Lean Duoface appears to be almost like it truly is intended for some sort of ladies arm.
