I have a client who came looking for stress relief. So we began our sessions with simple and gentle postures and breathing.
But in the third lesson I was moved to have him explore standing poses and in the fourth lesson, we started to flow. He is now totally hooked. The stronger vinyasa practice has met and grabbed him. And what more can a teacher do but set up the conditions for her student to get excited and be drawn in.
Sweat pours off of him as he struggles to step his foot forward from down dog and he loves it! I laugh at myself cuz my mind would never have lead us here. I am so lucky to have him as my teacher.
