When we make the effort to explain what we do, we get to see it for ourselves. This mindfulness creates a deeper relationship as well as shifts the process.
Today I realized that I teach asanas from internal actions. I am totally unwilling to just suggest the name of a pose, without tuning it. This is time consuming and results in too much talking, but it also results in a room full of poses that are dialed in from the inside and relatively comfortable and clear for the peeps attempting them.
But as I try to share these actions with the peeps in the Winter Teacher Training, I am not sharing them so that they will repeat them verbatim. I am hoping, actually, that they will use them to start to internally map within their own bodies and bring forth new language.
In attempting to assist others on the path to teaching, all we can do is share everything and hope some of it is useful.
