Okay, so I’ve calmed down considerably since my last entry. It was refreshing to know that I’m not the only person who had a meltdown. Just about everyone did. LOL Most of the trainees are promising that they’re going to cry through the entire course. It’s probably true. It’s a lot to take in.
The course is moving quickly (8 weeks) so we’re cramming in a lot of information and learning a lot about poses in a very short amount of time. In between the course lectures and posture clinics, we have to log 45 yoga classes outside of the program and journal our observations. So far, I’ve only done one class. Crap. I’m going to take one (two?) tonight, and see if I can make up for lost time.
My body is either going to be amazing, or I’m going to die. I haven’t decided yet. After 3 (4?) hours of yoga yesterday, I ache from the top of my head to the bottom of my feet. I had to be helped out of bed this morning. I think my body is reminding me that I’m no longer 25. I hear it… loud and clear.
Throughout this course they emphasize that you MUST take care of yourself. I can see why. We do a LOT of yoga. We’re learning a ton of stuff, and we still have to go about the business of conducting our daily lives. Some of my classmates have children, businesses, and other careers to attend to. I love the energy and I respect the multi-tasking spirit. Many of the trainees make my life look like one of leisure, and that’s saying something.
So far, so very good. It’s a lot, but I’m up for the challenge. We’ll see how it all goes. I’ll keep you updated as we traipse along!
