Tarika

I work 3 long days in the entertainment biz, teach 3 corporate client classes and have gone back to school part-time for a physical therapy degree. This has seriously impacted my prior beloved 4 yoga class week for myself! I often have to choose between getting homework done or getting to a yoga class, and these days homework has taken precedence, much to my chagrin. As a result I've dedicated myself to developing a home practice, and while it is much different an experience than the energy of a group class & the peaceful oasis of the studio, I do find it valuable, very grounding, and brings me deeper into my practice as both student and teacher. I find if I'm deep into homework and need a break, to the mat I go! I then return to those studies relaxed, refreshed and more receptive. I also feel less resentful of the work I perform not related to yoga, ans able to see it as the fuel that allows the space for yoga and school and the pursuit of future goals.

I teach two yoga classes at a large senior citizen center in town for active adults. My greatest satisfaction is in seeing and hearing about my student"s progress in an entirely non-competitive environment. I must admit that my own personal home practice had decreased severely. Last week I resolved to make the time to practice on my own for at least a half hour a day. That half hour turned into 45 minutes one day. I felt as if I had returned to a good place where I used to be as a student. I was reminded of a phrase I occasionally say to my students in beginning relaxation:"You know how you feel before you come into this class, and you certainly know how you feel after you leave this class".
