Well, I taught my first class tonight! I think it was overall a very positive experience. I had seven people show up – six of them were friends or acquaintances, and one was a stranger. Seven is a lucky number, right? : )
My impression upon leaving class was as follows:
1) my throat hurts!
2) I just can’t get enough practice teaching those Sun Salutations
3) I can’t tell if I’m too fast or too slow, and I can’t tell if I’m talking too much or not enough
I can only hope that all three will improve a tiny bit each class I teach. The person in class who I did not know said it was her first yoga class and she had “a very enjoyable experience”. That’s about all a girl could ask for, right?!
One thing is worth noting – I don’t feel much different since the class. I almost feel like I just did yoga for an hour and there happened to be some people in the room doing it with me. It will be interesting to see if that sensation changes as I teach more.
That’s all for tonight – namaste,
