Defying Gravity

Something has changed within me
Something is not the same
I'm through with playing by the rules
Of someone else's game
Too late for second-guessing
Too late to go back to sleep
It's time to trust my instincts
Close my eyes and leap
- Defying Gravity / Wicked

I taught two yoga classes today - a gentle class this noon, and an intro class tonight. Both subbing for other teachers; the noon class planned, tonight's somewhat last minute, although I had a day to prep.

Just very powerful - to stand in the center of a room with students all around in a deep restorative posture. To teach two good sized classes, 10-15 students. To feel my energy resonate in the room, come back to me from students. To open my heart to the classes, to put it out there.

I am blessed with these opportunities. I am blessed with teachers from whom I have been able to learn. I am exhilarated, and scared silly at the awesome responsibility placed in my hands.
