Spin Your Back Foot Flat.....

Last Saturday, prepping for yoga teaching, I found myself bringing people into Warrior I posture with the cue "Bring your right foot forward, spin your left foot flat" (I was leading a Sun Salutation B sequence). The trainees I was practicing with commented on that cue - that they liked it.

Yesterday, working with Marcia, I realized that I got it from her. After class I gave her some props and thanks; she said it's a Shiva Rea thing....

Yoga teaching seems more and more like some sort of ancient knowledge - passed down from teacher to student, and each new teacher an amalgam of all of their teachers and influences.

Wonderful to feel as if I am part of this tapestry.....
