Namaste Steph. I liked the lightness and the ease and well roundedness of the 1st day. I was excited to do this as I have time on my hands during the day to do so right now and am recovering from a major illness so I thought this is the perfect way to reconnect to my once strong practice. I need to give you some feedback though and it will make you seem like such a better instructor even though not everyone will know why if you do this One thing: use "your" when describing any and all body parts, breath, spirit, soul, mind,'s always "your" not "THE" It's so impersonal to use "the feet" "the heart" when describing "our" body parts. The reason we need yoga is to connect to ourselves and the use of "the" to describe "my" body parts just disconnects me more and it sounds like the teacher is trying too hard to sound important whenever I hear it. I have been teaching for 16 years now and it always used to be "your" foot, "your" heart, "your breath" this immediately makes the student feel you are speaking directly to them but "the" sounds haughty and if you want us to be playful then it shouldn't sound so impersonal, formal and snooty. This is something I hope will stop all this "the", "this" , "that" which is becoming epidemic amongst yoga instructors all over the West. I am so sad that these recordings are full of it as every time I hear it I disconnect and I was so looking forward to little yoga tea breaks every day. Sometimes you use "your" interspersed between the "the's" of our random, disconnected, generic body parts. On the same note, when instructors use "our toes" instead of "your" this can sound like kindergarten teaching and doesn't have the same potency either. I appreciate all yoga and thank you for your sweet energy and nice pointers in the postures. I hope next time what I've shared might make a difference. I hope the use of "the" to describe "my" gets halted if more of we instructors begin to make the yoga more organic and personal again. I like when my yoga instructor sounds like they are talking to me and not just generic "them". Know what I mean? Om Shanti <3
