I’m having a little victory party for myself today. I completed teaching my first yoga class and if I do say so myself it went over very well. Now of course I didn’t get all of my poses in but I was able to completely finish everything I wanted. Now that I have a framework I’m going to expand this into a workshop.
I am so excited. This is one of those areas where I was so scared that I would fail but as we talked this morning about what it’s like teaching and the attitude that you should have while teaching. The best advice our instructor gave us was to not give a fuck. To prepare well and then go in and rock that shit! It was so nice to be reminded that we will do the best we can and what others think of us while we are doing so doesn’t matter. We can still expect greatness from ourselves but being worried about what others will say about us during that class is a waste of time and energy.
I’m so happy and feel so fulfilled. Yoga was the missing movement portion of the serves and healing that I offer. Now I have breath work, meditation, reiki, and yoga to pull out of my arsenal of services that I can offer to others. Now I just want to add a couple of more skills and I’ll be able to fully support the healing of myself and my community known as the world.
Do you find yourself caring too much about what other think? How do you deal with this?
