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.
