we each had two opportunities to teach. on saturday, i taught how to be in tadasana and transition to urdhva hastasana. we had to include benefits and alignments. i rocked the house! (at least i think so.) today, everyone got to teach one half of a lunging surya namaskara. i'm so glad that i practiced this a bunch on my own and a little with some of my fellow TT mates. i had so much fun teaching this. i really felt like this is it. i want to do this. i want to teach yoga. it was super empowering. i can't even believe how much i learned this weekend.
this morning, while using my neti pot, i had taken out my septum piercing and decided that during our early morning pranayama practice, i would leave it out. during nadi shodhana, i had this realization that i didn't want my septum ring anymore. i finally really connected with my breath and it was so amazing. i just had this moment where i thought, you're not putting that metal back in your nose. so i didn't. i feel free.
i enjoyed learning dinacharya (daily rituals). we all started using our dry brushes and oils this weekend before showering. it feels delightful! i only neti pot when i need to, as i don't want to overdo it. but i did neti pot today because i've been having bad allergies in the morning.
i'm soooo tired. i have so much to do already again. have to write a paper for wednesday and start really reading all the books that are in store for the rest of this program.
ok. goodnight folks.
