This afternoon I taught at the Yogathon at Yoga Jones in Ventura, benefitting KidsArt.
The class was billed as a gentle yoga for meditaiton class.
I started out with a talk, thinking we had 90 minutes, then Marcia let me know we only had an hour. So things got simple quick. I was really glad Marcia was in the room. It really helps to have people you know. Melissa was there. Lori was there. And a few other peeps. Grounding points.
Since we were benefiting a kids art effort, I allowed the talking points to be inspired by Betty Edward's "Drawing from the Right Side of the Brain." I spoke on learning how to LOOK. I referenced Carol Dweck's Mindset and the Effort Effect and Gladwell and the 10,000 hours of practice.
This is the first time I have opened with a talk and not just started in and allowed the talking points to be revealed. So this was new and fun. It felt right to engage the new group who I have never met and connect.
