Saturday we had "The Joy of Yoga" workshop and this was the seminar that I was most excited about since we received our calendar of events.
Theresa from Healthy Vibrant You was our guest speaker and a fellow graduate of the Yoga school that I am attending.
We started the day performing a Lymphatic Drain Practice which she recommended we do every day in the morning to "unclog" our lymphatic system.
After lunch we did Desire Mapping which looked like this:
We then broke into little groups and each had 1 minute to explain WHY we wanted to be yoga teachers and after that minute, the other two people in our group would give us just one word based on our story. I was very personal with the ladies in my group and the two words that they gave me were "Inspired & Compassion". We then put some music on and danced our words out...it was such a beautiful release of emotion and happy tears. We laughed and said that it reminded us of Grey's Anatomy when Meredith and Cristina would "dance it out"
And now onto Sunday...
Sunday was a full day of Anatomy; our anatomy teacher Janine, is very knowledgeable and I believe she is a Surgical Nurse. As a personal trainer and health coach, I came into this thinking that I knew most of what we needed to know...yeah not so much. There's so much that we need to retain in these few months and the only way that I can describe it is, Overwhelming. Yesterday when I came home from school, the tears started to fall once I entered my apartment (they fell again in my video below).
The Yoga school that I am attending is one of the best in the country and they want to make sure that all their graduates represents them in the best light which I respect. Last week, I spoke about accepting the highs and lows in our life and this week was yet another lesson in that department.
