Staying the cosmic course

I’ve been taking a nine month, 200-hour yoga teacher training course. Since, what was it, November?

 I didn’t want to be a teacher. I just wanted to dive into the yoga, I don’t want to say “dive deep” or any other buzz phras.  Because I want it to not be so easy.  I want to be mindful, put effort, into the words. 

 A dying art maybe.  But words, every word, word by word and bird by bird, every word counts. (Hey, there’s a reason I named my freelance company exactly that after I was shit-canned).

 I digress.  

I decided to take the plunge, spend the time (which I had) and the bucks (which I sort of didn’t) not really to immerse myself in the physical aspect, but to learn more about the spiritual, the philosophical, the ancientness of the yoga.

The class has been giving me so much more.

It’s  a long, intense weekend once a month. I love-hated it — scratch that, I adored it – from the start.  But didn’t think it would/could continue in these COVID times. Because it wasn’t just a matter of doing yoga, but of conn3ecting  with my fellow yogis it training, my teachers,  sweat and mind and soul — and just a glance across the  room at another person who understood.   

But Michelle (I’m going to start calling her Poohbah Michelle)  posted earlier this week that  we would meet, we would persevere, keep it virtually real.   And so, or course, we continue.

We’re ZOOM’ing  Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I will be passing along wisdom, as I know there will be plenty. 

 Stay tuned, and six feet apart.

 

Namaste
