Again. And even the ‘killer’ led class at that. 😉
Because practitioners start at the same time, so there are no rushing energies that tend to disrupt the flow of the class. I do not understand why during mysore, when students come at their own convenience, they still enter the shala panicky? anxious?
Because it promotes discipline. Do as you are instructed. No leaving of posts to drink, go to the restroom, or chat at the bar. Therefore, unnecessary movements are minimized.
Because it forces you to focus–on the breath, on what the teacher is saying, on your movement. Ergo, there are less opportunities for the mind to wander.
Because it brings you out of your comfort zone and thus expands your limits. Sure, it is not easy to adjust to YT’s rhythm, which is not necessarily in sync with your own (which, admittedly, was my initial reaction to that killer class, ha!), but that’s where you get the stretch.
Led class causes me mat burn. Seriously. But so what?
Side note: It’s not in the mat. It’s not in the brand of yoga outfit nor the facilities of the shala/studio either. Photos were taken during the practice of the UP Pep Squad. Go batchmates, haha! 😛
