Big Day!

Starting my internship today at Life Centers of Kirkland. I’ve really been looking forward to it – but of course the first day anywhere is full of uncertainties – as least in *my* experience.

To shake off the jitters, I’m going to start the day out right with a 6:15 a.m. class. I have promised myself to get in as much yoga as I can while in WA.  I have to make the internship the priority of course, but I should also be able to get back on my mat a whole lot more than I have lately. I don’t know this teacher, so I hope I like her, for the 6:15 a.m class is perfect for my schedule. I am literally minutes from the studio at bestie’s house.  I am truly blessed to be staying with her.

There is this silly little voice in my head telling me that in 7 weeks I’ll regain my former fear of public speaking and teaching will once again be stressful. I hope that isn’t the case of course.  I’m probably being silly, for I’ve gotten to a place where I’m quite comfortable in the role and teaching a wide variety of styles, multi-level. I must hold onto the idea that I will return to NM a better teacher, one who has rested her voice for a little bit. It is good to be the student, and let someone else do the thinking. It’s interesting to hear other teachers cues, and to steal their ideas that speak to me.  Lol. I’m a phrase thief!
