Ugh – boy do I have it. Life lately has been rather insane. Mostly it’s insane with good stuff – yoga teacher training, the yoga festival, meeting friends for supper, visiting the parents, doing yoga observation hours, exercising, reading, making water kefir, cooking, working on the garden, planting flowers. These are all things I love to do, but Jesus Christ, it all takes so much time!
And there is so much more that I WANT to do. So many more books to read, things to paint or draw, blankets and coozies to crochet, walks to take, podcasts to listen to, friends to keep in touch with, writing to do. But I just don’t have time. I really need to just quit my job. That’s the only way to get my life back in balance again. 🙂 But, unfortunately, I don’t think that can happen any time soon. There are too many classes I want to take, too many yoga clothes I want to buy, and too much eating out that I want to do. Hopefully yoga will help me reign in all these wants, and I will eventually find that I have just enough hours in the day to accomplish everything that I need to do to make me happy.
ANYWAY, had another great day at YTT today. We learned how to teach a stress management class that you can do in a corporate setting. This is something that I am very interested in, since it’s the world I live in every day. I’m surrounded by people who are even more busy and more stressed out than I am, and I would love to get them a little relief. These people SOOOOO need yoga. Well, everyone needs yoga, but these people that I care about and work with daily would be so much happier with some yoga in their lives. I’m going to ask HR if I can do some free 30 minute lunch hour sessions. It will help me get my practice hours, and it will also help me gauge the level of interest at the bank for these kinds of things in the future.
The rest of the day was spent learning about how to use the wall to teach people correct alignment in asanas, learning about adjustments for certain postures, and in doing some practice teaching. Oh, and in getting free strawberry plants, sugar cookies cut out in asana shapes, and handmade chapstick. Awesome. This is the kind of people we have in our YTT group.
But now I am severely beat. Severely. I ran this morning for 3 miles, which I used to do with regularity and almost without effect. However, I don’t run as much as I used to due to the aforementioned disease of business. So when I do run, crap, am I ever beat afterwards!
Anyway, I hope you are having an excellent weekend! Tell me, if the company you worked for offered free lunch-time yoga classes, would you go? And if so, what would you want to learn/do??
