Yoga Day USA

Yoga Day USA was this past Saturday.

Studios all over the country held free yoga classes and San Antonio was no exception.

I wasn't able to participate as a student in any classes, but that's ok, because I taught 3 classes that day.

The first class was my normal Spectrum class that I'm enjoying very much. That room is a challenge to speak audibly in, but I'm working on it. I have to avoid the temptation to minimize the words I say because I have a lot to teach. I just have to get comfortable projecting my voice or break down and use the microphone. Should I just use the microphone? It seems like a yoga teacher faux pas, but I could be crazy.

Then I went to Two Hearts Yoga and team taught 2 yoga classes with my friend, Stephanie. We were in teacher training together and she's a good friend. I've been going to her Rockin' Vinyasa class on Fridays and really enjoying it. I'm familiar with how she teaches, but she's not that familiar with how I teach, but she does know that I'm pretty into Ashtanga. It was a fun day, and I was a little sore from all the demonstrating.

Since our classes were official yoga meetups, we got rated by some of the students after class. Right now we have 5 ratings with 5 stars. People said such nice things. It's pretty exciting to see that.

“ I really enjoyed this Meetup!!! ”

“ If you want to learn Yoga, this is the place, ”

“I enjoy the classes very much, and look forward to continuing yoga practices. ”

“Stephanie and Becky complimented each other in their teaching styles. The class was excellent!”
