Its been on my mind lately.
As has yoga.
I am so very excited, and a wee bit nervous in a great way, to make my triumphant return to teaching yoga! This Sunday at Sage Yoga and Wellness I will be teaching their FREE Karma Yoga class from 10-11am.
Sunday we will explore the concepts of liberation in our bodies and in our yoga practice. It’ll be fun as we explore ideas like impermanence, prana, movement, liberation, creation, and JOY! All in the beautiful space of Sage Yoga Studio, above Bittercreek & Red Feather on 8th Street in downtown Boise.
Teaching yoga fell into my lap and it took me a little while to become comfortable with it. It still causes me a healthy amount of stress when considering classes, but this is a seed of my inspiration and it helps me examine the world around me, and my place in it from a yogic standpoint. Which is easily one of my favorite parts of teaching yoga. It keeps me grounded, holds me accountable, and it gives me boundless potential to observe and chose the lens from which I see the world.
Yogis do hold deep wisdoms and have gained insights through deep meditation and lifetimes of asana. But I am here to tell you that if you just start by paying attention and observing everything in your life through the eyes of a reverent artist, you too will be well on your way to becoming a yogi in my book!
But lets not forget the asanas, aka yoga poses… they have a beautiful way of expanding our reverent-artist-lens repertoire. So join me Sunday as we explore yoga together! I am very happy to take a small break in my role as student, to shift my mat to the front of the room and hold space, set intention, and maintain focus for us as we embark upon a wondrous yogic adventure together.
