We don’t do yoga to get better at yoga, we do yoga to get better at life’.
Have you heard that saying? I’ve been using my yoga breath a lot this summer, so I think it’s true.
My kids are teens now so they require different care from me than they did in summers before. Living with them now feels like I’m living with raccoons. They are either nowhere to be found throughout the day, or lively and freely rummaging through our fridge at night.
I take deep breaths to help manage my annoyance of waking up to a sink full of dirty dishes each morning, but it’s not just the mess, late-night snacking is not good for them. The yoga teacher in me can’t help but remind them that this will only lead to poor digestion.
I teach them that twisting helps stimulate digestion, and that the descending colon is on their left side, so start there.
I’m thankful for all the anatomy I learned in my YTT, because as you know, good yoga teachers need to teach much more than asana. They need to help students understand the meaning behind the movements by understanding the body and the effects of practice.
Since the anatomy party can be a tricky thing to teach, we did it for you.
