So, I finished up the immersion in Austin and made my way out here to Santa Monica for a week of filming at Yogaglo. Yesterday morning I taught a class called "Out with the old, In with the new" that used strong muscle energy in the legs to help facilitate twists and and to grow the Inner Light. I talked a little about how Lee would sometimes say that we should spend less time working on our "stuff" and more time focusing on our practice and our strengths so that the Light we cultivated from our Work could outshine the crap that was blocking it. Grow the Light instead of work through e darkness. Like that. (of course, as we all know, it is also true that at times you have to face the dark stuff head on, with fearless self-scrutiny and unflinching honesty. But even that work can be done in the context of Light.)
I spent the day doing a little exploring, taking a walk on the beach and getting settled. I did a great asana practice and then I made my way back to The Glo for the evening class. I taught a vinyasa- based practice called Discipleship to the Flow which was a lot of fun. There was a great turn out and we had a fun time with lots of strong work leading to some backbends.
If you do not know about Yogaglo, you should find out about it. For $18/month you get unlimited yoga classes with awesome instructors and all from the privacy of your own home. It's a great deal, a wonderful resource and a great tool for your practice and teaching. Seriously, check it out- www.yogaglo.com
Today I do some solo filming at 4:30 which will be an hourlong practice focused on body image and then I am going to take Kathyrn Budig's class and then I am teaching a class called Goodnight Sweetheart which will be totally different than last night's class. Tonight it will be gentle, sweet and soft, as the name suggests. I am looking forward to it.
I guess that is about it for today. I have some ideas percolating to write about but right now, I am needing to spend a little time prepping my classes. More soon.
