Sing a Song of Ujjayi

That's what our teacher trainer S. said during practice yesterday. He said, "Let the breath become a lullaby that sings to everybody in the room." Isn't that a lovely image?

I completed my first full day of yoga teacher training yesterday, and it was awesome!

I'll write more when I have time, as right now I'm on my way to the second session. I'll just say that the energy and dedication in the studio was amazing. I am filled with joy at the opportunity to learn and experience yoga at a different level.

Thankfully, we did much more instruction and listening than poses. I was worried that we would be doing non-stop asanas. The focus was more on developing a philosophy and understanding of yoga and of partner work.
