i'm thinking about reading this short story to the TT class for the beginning of my 'lead the om.' (on feb. 3rd)
the lead the om is basically a 20 minute "opening" to a vinyasa class. we are all required to lead the om as a practice for becoming a teacher.
i want to read this story and relate it to the yama: aparigraha (non-hoarding, non-possessiveness). i think it works. i need to think on this, but i think it would be cool to tie this traditional story with a positive ending to yoga.
just a thought..
also, we have an open class plan due on jan. 20th and i started to plan mine yesterday. i'm going to practice it today and see if it flows and makes sense. i only got the standing parts done, when we get to the floor i'm not sure about how to put shoulder stand into the sequence. i need to talk to my mentor. or jill. yeah, that's what i gots to do. xo
