U Morning Yoga: A Teacher's Perspective

From Monday to Friday, face the cold and just in the morning, a larger group of states full of yogurts stumbled through my classroom bag. It's 6 hours Time for the bad maneuver, the stiff muscles, and all the joy on the day of yoga praying for yoga.

In the last couple of months he has understood to be true that early schoolchildren are a different race. The thing that is too much for a day does not work a day before it is ready to go home and come back again and the rest of us started working. There is a certain amount of tired strain that permeates aria and often musculus semiculate, "what do you think?"

In the morning, it's full of people who ran to their own reluctance. It's 5:45 they got me to walk on the door. Many are on 4:30 just to make the time. With pillow lines that enhance your breasts and many come in Pemama (literally), stumble upon our mother and hope that in any case, the balance of the office will be better than the domains. Oh, and do not forget, when they finish when they have spent eight days working in front of your beam.

This is a group whose process of dedication, and maybe a little insanity. Generally not the mother or retreat of football (it comes to me at 9am class); These are a race that must be the work of new and hope to sleep when today. I am writing from Columbus, Ohio, where the alejandro's altitude of temperatures shot at the point fired. The sun is not upright until 7:30 and is released long before the most part of the business. It's a climate that says: "You've had an extended hibernate and a child."

However, this morning's resignation seems to have taken place in the game and in a team that seemed unimaginable as the sole developed. I have not been based on the fact that they would be more flexible (which certainly are shown by two students tapping their head to their feet for the first time in the last week). This pair of group looks at the big yogic beats. Maybe their practices help see the truth of yoga. I guess I mean to say, they see that yoga is something bigger than we do in a yoga class … it is much larger than what you do about your yoga mat.

This many of the righteous humble is good. About a few days before our first class, the group of daughters had created a group of brothers and sisters. A couple of younger, many elderly, they were staying to find many more than one lean balance that any other day would be too simple to discuss. When a new student walks asleep at the door of the class, check it quickly right away and give a few words of support. The class begins and for ninety minutes persists, disciplines, and the will to supervise the pledge (with the usual comedy that comes with proof to stretch to 6ori).

Finish with the traditional few minutes of calmness and silence. A shavasana to be restored, recycled and relaxed; a brief interlude before the personal day. But this is where the true difference is found in the morning.

While most people want stress class, lo, to recover from all the stress of the day. The army of the day is watching the fire in a different fire.

Several traditional yoga definitions can be summed up as "steadying the mind" … and that's exactly how this group is. For them, yoga is not the result of stress, is stress prevention, perhaps even the elimination of stress. I fight early morning and class before going through them all day. For them, yoga is not stese, or rest, or relaxing. It is practical for the rigors of day-to-day life.

Rise when you can sleep. Face the cold when your home is always warm. It is transformed into the classroom while others find it with their coffee. Pull, push, twist, breath, sweat. Now, do all that and finish with the smile in your face and the sense of calmness in your core. Something of this practice in the morning is simply to have a different effect. Every skirt in the morning seems to stop making the rest of your day so easy.

The class in the morning is not for everyone, but for 10 days from June, the sun shakes with the sole from the domain, I would like to thank you, because always forever, I remind you of the true yoga.
