It's been nice to have a break on Sunday mornings, especially as the first couple of months back in my "real" job are always stressful. 70 new students to welcome into my ESOL classes has been more than enough of a challenge for me. Brian (my husband) welcomed my Sundays off with a celebratory bottle of wine on Saturday nights (difficult to do when you're leading a yoga class the following morning). But half term and, with the Om Yoga Show finished for another year, this seemed like the best time to bring the bandstand classes back.
I'm really glad I did because this morning was fantastic! Fellow Dru Teacher, Rachel, joined me today and led the activations and Energy Block release sequences. I love Rachel's gentle and clear style of teaching. She also has another life as a teacher - she is what I think of as a "proper" teacher in a Primary School and her clear instructions definitely reflected this. The Rock 'n Roll accompanied activations had us dipping, rocking and hand jiving. Thanks Rachel, it was wonderful!
The park itself was beautiful today - the trees a blaze of autumnal majesty. I was worried the bandstand might be lost in the heavy mist we had woken to a few a hours before but I needn't have worried. The air cleared by 10.30am and the sun even managed to make an appearance. We began with seated stretches, followed by Rachel's sections, then back to me for Earth Saluation, Flowing Tree and Bridge.
Thanks to the six yogis who joined me today and proved you can practise yoga outside in the winter. If you're thinking about it, why wait - join us next month on 6th December. You're very welcome and I promise you'll feel fantastic afterwards!
