Teaching yoga

10-23-13

I was teaching a very large class of what seemed like first year college student age. We were supposed to be practicing yoga, but they were absolutely terrible at taking direction. I was trying to get them to line up in several horizontal lines across the room, but they were incapable of figuring that out.

I gave up on that and just tried to get them each to just spread out enough to find their own space to move. That seemed well enough. Next I began working on a sun salute sequence with them. They were totally incapable of following the sequence, even when I described in detail every movement. So I tried to focus just on raising the arms over the head and then bending over to touch the toes. That was all right.

The kids were kind of babbling some type of weird language amongst themselves. I thought maybe we just weren't speaking the same language.

One girl stopped me and asked me why her lower back would hurt, in English. I instructed the class to continue reaching up and stretching the side body, and then dropping the torso forward with a straight back, reaching for the toes. I demonstrated. They tried. Then I began to teach her about the arch she had in her lower back. As I did so, I didn't notice that the class all began to bring their desks back to the center of the room and line them all up horizontally, just like I had asked them to stand.

When I brought my attention back to the class, they were all seated and waiting for me. I laughed. Then I said, "Fine. We'll just do seated yoga. Everyone reach your arms up over your head…"
