The longer it takes the luckier you are because then it lasts forever. -Jim Kallett
The things that we struggle with, the harder it is for us, the more we will learn and the longer the adventure lasts. For instance, this is true both in my practice (5 years) and the time it’s taken to get me to teacher training since I made up my mind to go (1.5 years). That’s not as long as for some, but it’s definitely a longer curve than for many. But I’ve benefited from it–I know more about what to expect from teaching, I have a better foundation, I’ve learned more about the postures and myself.
I’ve been lucky enough to hear Jim speak before when he did a clinic at my studio last spring (thanks Darla and Abhi!), and it was both inspiring and informative then. Today’s afternoon lecture was no different! Filled to the brim with quotes, insights, advice, philosophy, history of yoga, ALL of it! I’m so happy this time around, I took notes (8 pages). So looking forward to putting it all into practice….. right now, to be exact.
