To prep everyone and set the tone for my yoga class I created some fundamentals to follow.
➡️😃This extra extroverted gal is going to be herself as a yoga instructor. Yes you got it!
And for those that know me, or who have come to my
dance fitness classes would you expect any less? 🤷♀️😂
😌1) Be yourself.
This is a private studio. A relaxed space. It’s ok to laugh, make a joke or two, or even swear. Just be yourself. If in the future I decide to host a movement meditation or healing class I’ll be clear what type of atmosphere to expect. For this beginner class, be comfortable- be you!
It’s true. I learnt it in my training. As we stretch and move we get our organs going especially our bowels. Sometimes a fart just comes out. And if you smell someone’s else’s... well this is a great time to practice mindfulness and turn off your sense of smell and turn on other senses.
😭3)Exhale the bullshit.
We are told at our workplace “leave it at the door”. It’s easier said than done. We are humans, not robots 🤖 . We have emotions that can’t always be switched off. Exercise is healing. If your laughing or crying it’s healing. In my class, don’t be afraid to shed a tear or to giggle. I will be joining you..lol.
❤️4)Be kind to yourself and others.
First, be kind to yourself. Your body does amazing things for you everyday! It’s because of your body that you can go enjoy life! Don’t get angry if you can’t get a move right. Sometimes it just takes practice. Focus on the positive of what you can do, and look at everything else as a healthy challenge.
Be kind to others. We are all here sharing this space. Let’s be positive and encourage each other.
😴5)It’s ok to fall asleep during meditation.
Be prepared for 10 min of meditation/resting. It’s a sacred, safe and blessed space-you might be so relaxed you fall asleep. And that’s ok.
I will make sure to have yoga mat cleaner handy for people who drool like myself.
I am really looking forward to learning and growing as a yoga instructor. And I am so happy to share this time with all of you.
I’d like to do a special shout out to Sheri Boyce Evolve Spiritual Services. I am very thankful for the studio space 🙏. And I’d like to thank Sheri for teaching me to be authentic and just be me.
If anyone is interested in Sheri’s Spiritual Development Courses please message her for details.
