Can You Ever Learn Too Much About Yoga?
Did you know that the challenges yoga instructors face in their own yoga practice are no different from the challenges that yoga students encounter regardless of their level of experience? Finding the “sweet spot” in some of the poses, exploring various ways to approach the asanas – both physically and mentally – and being challenged to tackle the ones that are a bit out of reach require work and effort.
Working with an instructor helps you “see” through someone else’s eyes, what you cannot see for yourself. Whether you are just beginning a yoga practice, or have studied for years, that may sound familiar! If you are not in a yoga class at the moment, come give our instructors a try! And if you are participating in a yoga class, maybe a yoga workshop would serve as the “eyes” for seeing yoga in a fresh way.
Cindy Dollar, owner of One Center Yoga in Asheville, NC, author of the book, Yoga Your Way, and Certified Junior Intermediate I Iyengar Yoga Instructor, will lead her annual workshop here at Sunrise Yoga Studio on November 15th-17th. Instructors from our studio will be attending as will instructors and students from all over the Triad. And, just so you’ll know, Cindy has a teacher, and also works to refine her physical practice and strengthen the mental discipline that is associated with yoga. And her teacher has a teacher, and so on and so on.
So beginners, take heart. Whether you have taken one class, or one thousand, the process is the same. And, we all look to mentors and instructors to help us along our way as we discover the many rewards that yoga has to offer.
