Last week-end was week-end 7 already (Time flies!!!), and we had people from outside on saturday and sunday who came to share their knowledge with us.
We actually already had an outside speaker the previous week-end, when i say outside I mean not in the training, but she’s actually a teacher at Yoga salt where the training takes place. Her name is Audra, and she was great. She talked to us about alignment, smart flow and how to build sequences. It was super interesting. She took her training with the famous Annie Carpenter, the goddess of alignment, and she was kind enough to share with us some key elements for a great yoga practice.
The firs guy who came to talked to us on Saturday, was teaching us how to act as a teacher with the students, the do and don’t, the kind of behavior you can have, how to react in certain situations…. It was kind of interesting, even tho pretty obvious most of the time. He was a yoga teacher too, but I was a little bit surprised by his way of addressing his advice to us. He was kind of aggressive, not intentionally, but it made the all thing awkward.
On the other hand on Sunday, we were lucky enough to have a 2 hours inversions workshop by the amazing Sean Gray.It was a delight, well at least for me, because I love inversions. I’ve learned so many things about handstand, forearms stand, tripod, head stand and shoulders stand, it was amazing.
I’m all for practicing Pinchamayurasana at the moment. I wasn’t practicing this inversion until my trip in New-York and my visit at the Jivamukti Yoga school. In that studio they practice serious inversions, and you’re not allowed to use the wall. It’s when I realized I had to work on my Pincha. It is a very tricky one as you are supposed to keep your forearms parallel to each other, which makes it harder.
I’m so grateful for the planning of this teacher training. I’m learning so many things at the moment, my practice is deepen, my mind is open, and I couldn’t be happier. I hope that by sharing my experience I’ll inspire the yoginis who read me to think about doing a thing like this.
In the meantime stay tuned! Namaste.
