I met with my student, Andrew Oliver, last week in the Southbay. Andrew traveled to Cabo for our Shiva Yoga 200hr Program in August. I had lunch with him and his partner, Ei Ei — they own the yoga studio, ‘Yoga Remedy’s’ together. Andrew did an incredible job in the training program in Cabo and I was excited to hear that he’s now teaching 2 classes a week at Yoga Remedy’s. He told me that several people in his life came up to him when he returned from Cabo and asked him what he had started doing recently because they noticed this really positive shift in him, and one friend even said it was like he was a whole different person. This yoga technology will change your life. There is no more important relationship you will have than the relationship with yourself. When you change this relationship, it changes your relationship to everything. Proud of you, Andrew!Read More
We finished our second last weekend in my Hanuman Yoga 200hr Teacher Training Program last night. I can't believe there's just one more weekend left. I'm so proud of all of the trainees. What a special group. Their level of understanding of yoga practice and yoga philosophy is getting pretty incredible and it's been so inspiring to watch them each grow so much this past year.
This weekend we delved deeper into Patanjali's Yoga Sutras and the Meditation Section of the manual. One of the things that I have loved about leading this training and that I love about teaching in general is that I am learning new things all the time along with my students.
The process of teaching is such a profound teacher in itself. My trainees have been doing exercises throughout the training where they are practice teaching, practicing their dharma talks on each other, giving presentations on philosophy, doing mock debates with each other,...etc...etc. This process of having to teach each other this material is such a huge teacher for them.
