Teacher's Practice?

As a new teacher, finding my way along this path I've chosen and hold so dear, I am challenged with finding my time to practice.

I used to look at my yoga teachers and think, man, they must live in a constant state of bliss--they're doing yoga all the time.

Not so much.

Sure, I practice along with my students but my "practice" is merely movements. I can call the breath but I cannot breathe it myself which is elemental in yoga.

So, this is me, carving out space for yoga. I'm learning bit by bit. Tonight, I moved through a few sun salutations and practiced yin yoga in several hip openers, closing with a brief meditation.

Tonight I was a student again--but in a big way, I suppose I always will be.

Thank goodness...
