There is only one more day, and three more classes left in this year’s Yoga Challenge.
I spent today preparing for the party tomorrow night. Everyone has been commenting on how this month flew. And even though I didn’t experience it that way, I’m glad they did. It means that they enjoyed it.
But me? I am looking forward to getting back to my old pre-Challenge life. And that means YOGA! As in: Kath practices. Because sadly, for me, the Yoga Challenge meant that my personal practice got squeezed out. I love teaching, and teaching is a very deep sadhana for sure, but it’s not the same as having a vital and alive daily yoga practice.
If there is one thing I hope the people who participated this year experienced was that: the importance of a vital and alive daily practice.
I haven’t crunched the numbers yet, but only 3 people made it every day. (In past years there have been a dozen or more who made it every single day.)
But there were many who did A LOT of yoga. And there were people who had never done yoga before who now understand why people do it, and what the attraction is, and there were some who fell mad-crazy in love with it and I will see them in the months and years to come, I am sure.
And during this past month, two of my students got accepted into Yoga Teacher Training programs. This makes me SO HAPPY! I and excited for them and what it is going to do to their lives, and I am happy for me, because it means that I might get them to teach in my studio when they are finished.
Congratulations to those of you who practiced virtually and have checked in with this blog in the comments. I have been tracking you and I have put your names into the drawing for the mats. I will be contacting you personally if you win.
And just in case you didn’t know, it doesn’t have to end! Keep going! And if you dropped the ball a little in April, start over in May, and let me know how you’re doing, in the yoga sense, and otherwise.
Thank you, especially, to those of you who wrote posts. I loved them! And so did all the readers of this blog.
I will talk to you tomorrow. Make this last day the best! Make it the first day of a new beginning!
