An email from a student practicing yoga and journeying toward her teacher certification recently attended my classes as the hip pain experienced for 18 years and now back pain, is not alleviated in her current practice which is one that involves moving quickly through poses, not focused on alignment. In her words, …”I won’t try to go “deeper” which really is annoying because that is what all the yogi’s that I’m around seem to want.” She is now most confused as how to teach her students and I believe that this is the place where we truly become our own students and teachers. Now the real learning and then the teaching begins.
