Yoga Teacher Training Musings with an 11-year old
Anatomy: Wait..so the funny bone isn’t a bone?
Philosophy/Yoga Sutras: Yoga explores dual AND non-dual realities (which is very confusing).
Sanskrit: Pizzasana; Snapchatasana; just add a’sana and you’ve got a sanskrit name for a yoga pose!
How to cue a’sana poses: Just make an L with your left hand to remember which side is left. Also, messing up is okay because we are human and we mess up sometimes! By being gentle with myself when I mess up, I can teach others to do the same.
Restorative Yoga: Zzzzzzzzz.
Prenatal Yoga: Always remember: pregnant women shouldn’t do savasana/final resting pose on their backs, but instead on their sides. I also learned that the baby is pushing on everything in there!
Kundalini Yoga: Chanting got me like..Ooooommmmmm! This is one of the few types of yoga that sometimes encourages inhaling through the mouth (rather than the nostrils).
Aerial Yoga: Just hangin’ out.
Vinyasa Yoga: Sweaty Yoga.
Acro/Partner Yoga: Please don’t fart on me.
Sup Yoga: Splash-a’sana.
Overall: Yoga Teacher Training was a great experience.
Thank you to everyone who supported me through it.
On this journey, I have become more aware of my resilience and inner-strength.
