In this episode, Rosemary introduces us to the physical as well as energetic elements for creating safe and engaging Vinyasa sequences, including pose order, the importance of learning and offering modifications, and breath cueing. She adds that teaching what you know, being adaptable, and finding a balance between trusting tradition and finding your own voice produces a balanced, grounding Vinyasa flow.
You are a teacher I turn to, again and again. As I heard you speak, I recognised so much of what you aim to create, I receive through your practice. You are an artist why paints with and within our bodies.
Hi Rosemary, this video was my first introduction to you as a teacher and what an awesome intro it was. Thank you for the guidance. It's always nice to hear something that reaffirms the way you teach but it is so incredibly helpful to hear something new or even something that points to a "bad" habit in your teaching. My favorite gem was near the end where you spoke to the creativity of Vinyasa but reassured us that as teachers we do not need to "reinvent the wheel" in every class and the reminder that it is a practice which means repetition is key. Thank you!
Thank you, Erin W ! What useful feedback! I applaud you for appreciating the guidance around "bad" habits- that's super evolved of you. ; ) And I'm heartened that the "reinventing the wheel" piece spoke to you. It seems to be a common struggle which I hope more of us can let go of. Lovely to "meet" you and eager to share more of the flow. Be well, R
