This is a group shot of all the women in my Kripalu YogaDance teacher training, part one. It felt like an auspicious day to post it, because I just finished signing up for part two, which will run from December 6th through the 11th. At the end of that week, we graduate!
(I am in the back, standing row, wearing white.)
When I signed up for this class, it was a risk -- a risk to my complacent comfort.
I still wonder what drove me to finally do it. I had thought for many years of going to a Yoga teacher training, and I always backed out.
Dance being a component of this training obviously helped drive me forward.
Yet I wonder what gives people the courage to risk?
While there, I took risks daily. Some part of me had decided that to do this, I was going to go full out. No stopping. No standing on the side lines.
I did things that week, pushed boundaries, without hesitation.
The real lesson will come when I am doing that on a daily basis in my "real" life.
