Teaching prep – Laura, RYT200

To round up our YTT journey, we are expected to teach two 60-minute community classes. This
includes everything from sequencing, to selecting music, to preparing to independently lead the
classes through the 60-minutes.

I find myself extremely fortunate to be so loved and supported by my friends and family, such
that there was an overwhelming number of sign ups to attend my community class. Leading up
to the class however, I feel unprepared and undeserving of the amount of the support that I
received. Whilst this caused me to be in a momentary state of panic, I’ve come to realize (of
course, with lots of encouragement from Jess, my YTT classmates, and my family) that
everyone starts somewhere. The primary reason for feeling this way is due to the expectations
that I’ve placed on myself – and not from anyone else. Teaching my first class is a battle that I
need to fight and overcome with myself – and not with anyone else. No one feels 100%
confident teaching their first class, and likewise this is an expectation that I have of myself which
I need to let go of in order to truly do my best for my students.

A very different kind of lesson from my personal practice, but I dare say the biggest challenge
for me which I will overcome!
