Strong foundations

Last night's class was a wonderful surprise. We had 11 students total, which is a record for that location. I definitely will bring more props from home for future classes just in case everyone returns for more fun.

I did have one student inquire about an advanced class I might be teaching. I hope I addressed that student's questions fully. After a little reflection, this is what I would like to say in general about my classes.

If you attend on a regular basis, you will not only receive individual attention to what you need to work on in your Yoga practice,
you will also receive instructions on how to improve your flexibility, strength, and stamina while learning about anatomy and proper alignment.

What is wonderful about working with a teacher on a regular basis is that you can see the teacher's progression within the asana to help the student receive more profound instructions.
I know this to be a fact for me, personally.

 I attend as many Yoga workshops as I can with senior level teachers Judith Lasater and Doug Keller. Videos can be helpful but nothing compares to a direct connection to a teacher who can give you immediate feedback. What those teachers (and many others in the past) have given to me is priceless.

Again, I really enjoyed the energy of last night's class. 
Thank you to all who attended.

I look forward to seeing you on the mat.
