My emotional limits were tested during lecture at the end of the week from the fascia guy. Lesson of that lecture, and for future trainees, don't let him steal your peace. His opinions were very intriguing and interesting and I appreciate and even agree with his baseline opinions but not his extremist beliefs. To each their own, I guess. I'm not a big fan of extremist of any type. It's like what Emmy Cleaves told us, to not expect yoga to heal or cure everything cause it won't. That pretty much sums up my attitude for life. Approaching all our journeys in life with a multitude of tools is the best way to go. But, then again, that's my opinion.
So, in the midst of my "fuck week 6" attitude, I've learned something! I've been digging my heels in and fighting the teacher training process to my utmost capability and it has definitely cause the experience here to be more difficult than need be. Wow! Kinda like yoga, right. When I fight the yoga process it's harder to do class. When I practice yoga from my brain rather than my heart it makes class a lot less fun. And I know a yoga practice is not supposed to be fun and easy always, but your heart is better capable to fight those battles than your mind is. Let it go. Turn it over. Don't listen to that voice that tells you to sit this one out. Cause your brain is usually wrong anyways.
That's about all I have to say for this week and I hope this post makes sense cause I feel like it's really hard to formulate and express my thoughts right now. There's just so much dialogue and emotions and "stuff" in there right now. Another fun thing is that I'm teaching my French Swiss friend, Val, loads of American slang and it's oh so much fun. Guess it's a good trade for her trying to teach me French. She loves the American language and loves learning and using the slang. It's the cutest and coolest thing in the world to hear her say "hella" or "rad". So totally rad! hahaha. Thanks so much for following my blog everyone! It truly means a lot to me! Here are some fun pics from the week. I hope they make you laugh and smile as much as they were to take them.
