So I started off the "weekend" doing a yoga triple, one class at work and then two at 3 Sisters Yoga + Fitness; one class was with one of the sisters (Courtney) the other was a community donation class with Jen teaching.
I taught one of these classes a few weeks ago and will be teaching it again. It's a great opportunity offered by 3Sisters. We get practice teaching, people get to try yoga very inexpensively (for free if you don't donate), and any funds raised get donated to a local charity. What a great win-win opportunity. Thank you 3 Sisters.
Also taught my normal Fitworks class on Saturday. I was point blank asked by one of the students where or when I taught during the week. Two other women said "thanks, you are favorite 'love to hate teacher'!" Followed by "Oh, that's a compliment!" I got a chuckle out of that.
Welcome to this week's Tao Te Ching verse. See here for what this is all about.
- Verse 15
- The ancient Masters were profound and subtle.
- Their wisdom unfathomable.
- There is no way to describe it;
- all we can describe is their appearance.
- They were careful
- as someon crossing over an iced-over stream.
- Alert as a warrior in enemy territory.
- Courteous as a guest.
- Fluid as melting ice.
- Shapable as a block of wood.
- Receptive as a valley.
- Clear as a glass of water.
- Do you have the patience to wait
- till you mud settles and the water is clear?
- Can you remain unmoving
- till the right action arises by itself?
- The Master does not seek fulfillment.
- Not seeking, not expecting,
- she is present, and can welcome all things.
