Yoginis at Seraphina
Had a nice day today with the students. Morning started off with Sun Salutation with Zana. It was refreshing to start at 6.30am, sun rays coming through the windows. We flowed with all the warrior and balancing poses. I think it’s not so much about how long we hold the poses that makes yoga enjoyable. It’s the friendship and the company you keep as both teacher and students. I love the flow of Sun Salutation even if I have done it a 100 times in one week. Perhaps Zana feels the same way too, she has such focus and endless energy to hold the pose. I like her grace when she does it.
Then came afternoon session with the beginners. I had Mei King and Sidah. It was good to run through in details on the poses. I got to work them through the ones they weren’t too sure about. We also got to look through Iyenger’s Light On Yoga. Telling them about the 8 limbs of yoga, and how it all relates to ourselves outside the class. It was a good chit chat before and during the session. I should call it Little Tea Time Yoga !
I decided to go full steam ahead with the 5.30pm session with the Intermediates. They did a lot of balances and poses that works with the heart chakra. I think I was the one that was puffed out cause I had my words all jumbled after 30 minutes. My brain, I think, was a little steam train trying to keep up with pace the students were doing.
Ahhhh, now I am looking forward to a relaxing weekend. Hmmm, maybe Pete will prepare a nice breakfast on Sunday….you think? …………Sigh
