A Year of Yoga

Last year I taught a lot of Yoga! So much so that by November I was rather tired, exhausted even. I found that I was way out of balance, working late to keep up with the workload, waking up early when our daughter Tula wakes up. The sleep deprivation was certainly not helping re-gain my vitality.

I felt that my regular classes on Waiheke were suffering somewhat from my tiredness.

I turned up to each class of course but often with only a vague idea of what I would teach. Part of this was actually useful and interesting … how do I teach when I’m under this amount of pressure? Can I improvise class after class?

I recently took an early morning private group for yoga here on Waiheke at the Marae. It was a very beautiful start to a few days ... practicing as the sun was rising, casting a beautiful light on the ocean shore just down from where we were. We're blessed on Waiheke...
