This week off from work has been weird. I've been trying to have no expectations but I have to admit that I expected to feel a tad different than I do about this week leading up to teacher training. I expected to feel more anxious, more frantic, more worried. But instead I feel calm, elated, excited and calm. I think calm really sums everything up. I have just been plugging along making lists and thinking of what I need to do next, I just can't seem to think of anyone to do.
But this week has gone by entirely too fast. I have to be honest that Ive been feeling pretty emotional as of late.
That's all the blog posting I could muster last week and I send many apologies to anyone who was waiting with baited breath as to how my last week at home was working out. So sorry to disappoint. hahaha. Well, I am here! At BYTT! And I can't believe it! Feels like a long time in the making because it was. Not only was it a year or so to plan and save for TT, but I also feel like my whole practice (about 8 years worth) has lead me to this point. Sneaky little bastard. As hard it was for me to leave my fam and life routine for 9 weeks, I am so very very glad I am here. I flew in yesterday and orientation/registration began at 1. It was def a long emotional day for me yeasterday. But I came and concurred. Met some online people and can barely remember their names, but that's ok cause I have 9 whole glorious weeks to do just that. I can certainly see how other trainees said that the days went by quickly cause yesterday feels like a total blur. I've gotten some good sleep and feel like I got some good food yesterday and I am prepared as I will be for this whole journey. My poor little roomie really can sleep through anything! As I am pounding away, she is dead to the world. Good for her, she needs it. Poor little poppin is all jacked up on time warp coming from Australia. But I have a feeling things will sort out well for her soon.
I just continue to be in awe of this whole experience so far. I'm pretty nervous about the classes but I have to say right now I am excited for them. My body and mind are craving them in a huge way. Plus I kinda want to just get it over with already you know. So thankful that today is a later start with yoga class at 5 and lecture at 10, it gave me a bit of time to sleep in and write this post. I'm feeling the bug to get some more dialogue under my belt and I'm thinking we will be able to do some studying today. I'm really glad that my roomie is from another country cause it is good check in with the rest of the world you know. They were telling us yesterday to try as much as possible to keep your experience at training all to your little yoga bubble, and that makes sense to me right now. And I'm not sure how much I will want to blog during training. But I'm sure I will be checking in at least once a week or so.
Gosh I feel like I had something else but I guess not. Thanks so much people for all your strength love and support. I certainly wouldn't have wanted to do this without it. I feel all that much more prepared because of it. Thanks so very very much.
