Tomorrow starts a new era in my teaching as I am starting a 7 am Tuesday and Thursday class at Iyengar Yoga Honolulu. These will be Basic 1 level classes where students deeply learn the fundamentals of Iyengar yoga. I have subbed this group a few times and they are enthusiastic and hungry for knowledge. In addition, some of my Friday night and Saturday morning students also expressed interest in taking the class.
I enjoy teaching basic students because you can show them step by step and not have to overcome bad habits. It also gives an opportunity to revisit earlier syllabi and relearn to teach poses from a more experienced lens. I can’t wait to get more “grist for the mill” from teaching this group!
