This post is way overdue.
What a great trip back to New England. I have spent a lot of time (and continue to do so) with some pretty amazing students. I have also maintained a pretty intense practice schedule myself in spite of being all over the place driving around in my little red rental Fiat.
I continue to feel the enormity of this practice, this method and lineage. I spent last week teaching at a lovely yoga studio in Bridgewater Massachusetts. I felt like I was back in Mysore India. everyday I was up on the south side of 5am teaching in a pretty crowed sweaty room. I am continually impressed by the dedication of students who do not have daily access to a Mysore class….yes! you can keep practicing.
This week I am back at Providence’s Motion Center. The room is filled with many familiar faces and some very new students. It is only Monday and I can tell it is going to be a pretty awesome week. Providence is a city I feel very at home in. Lunching with friends, grabbing coffee with fellow yoga teachers and driving the little Fiat without any need for the GPS.
Over the past month I have been really struggling with where I fit in with the big picture of yoga, and practice, and Farmville and teaching. I hope in the coming weeks…..more time in Philly and time with my teacher….I will have, if not some answers, a better sense of direction…..maybe I can feel at home too in my body and drive around sans GPS.
