My conversation with fellow blogger scheez over a cup of tea yesterday at coffee bean and tea leaf took lots of turns. One of the veins of that conversation was how a yogi (a yoga practitioner) eventually looses oneself in the pose, finding bliss and a relaxed state of mind—an idea which an officemate clearly enunciated just the other day, as being “in the zone” (click here for an “in the zone” article on yoga I wrote some months back). This officemate also paved the way for one potential “raket” of being a yoga teacher to a co-employee, whose previous exposure to yoga was les mills and fitness first’s body balance program. The program, a mix of tai-chi and yoga poses, was also my introduction to this ancient Indian practice, but I can say that I’ve diversified since then; I’ve gone on to learn and discover for myself other poses not taught in those classes, by reading yoga related articles found on journals and the internet. My three-year yoga love affair is still in its infancy so I am both thrilled and nervous that someone would want me to teach and inspire her. I’m still waiting for feedback/ confirmation from this co-employee from the other department; nonetheless, thinking of endless possibilities that this opportunity will open for me never fail to excite me and leave me exhilarated the rest of the day.
