About 1:45am Saturday night….drip…drip…DRIP…DRIIIP…DRIIIIIP…the sounds of water coming down woke me up out of my sleep.
Nature’s first green is gold
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.

One of the many ways yoga teachers describe the body is through the elements of earth, water, fire, air and space. A rough topography…the earth element is manifest in the feet and legs of the body. Water swishes in the pelvis, fire abodes in the solar plexus, air rises from the top of the heart through the throat and up to the third eye. Space opens the third eye to the crown of the head.
This way of construing the constitution also describes principles of psychology and it is through this bodyscape that I am beginning to understand my own hot headedness.
Does completing a 200‐hour yoga teacher training (TT) program make you a yoga teacher? I can say with certainty that many teacher trainings don’t teach much about teaching. In all fairness to the trainings, at the very least, teacher trainees are taught how to consistently practice, which is no small feat in itself.
