Tuesday’s are epic teaching days for me, and most times I make the self practice at 1pm over at Wake Up Yoga. Yesterday after teaching my first class instead of running to practice I needed to eat something, and that was the end of that. No practice yesterday. Which even as I am writing this could be the #1 reason I was overcome with frustration, and couldn’t really find my rhythm for the remainder of the day.
I think that in all areas of my life I hold the bar really high. So, after teaching last night’s usually very inspiring class I felt like I let the whole lot of students down. I couldn’t say what I wanted to say, I was stumbling and fumbling around searching for the way to weave the whole class together. I missed the mark precisely because I wasn’t sure what I was aiming at.
I dream of other jobs. Jobs that are just that jobs. A place to go to work, and when your are not at work, your not at work. I fantasize about health care, steady paychecks, paid vacation, Saturday and Sunday. My husband swears I couldn’t do it. He reassures me that this is what I not only love, but in a way what I was designed to do. Is this my dharma?
Today will be clearer because there will be practice. Practice = clarity.
My drop backs workshop is filling up! If you are interested you should come because who knows when I’ll change it all up, and relinquish my teacher role, and get my self a real job…..a job that requires shoes.
