“Be the drummer” (4/6)

When it came to teaching sequences during our Yoga Teacher Training it got messy. So much to think of:

  • Name of the pose
  • Verbal instructions to give
  • Demo the pose
  • Give options (regression/progression)
  • Physical adjustments
  • Keep an eye on the watch

Jessica summarized this situation of complete mental overload quite well: “You have to be the drummer!” So many things to watch and keep in mind at the same time.

Finger crossed I will not completely lose my mind during my class about left/right foot; open to the right/left side; etc.

Slowly I start getting nervous.

A Yoga Teacher friend of mine once said: If anything goes wrong, remind your class to deeply breath in and out.
