'As teachers we can open the door, and point the way, but you have to make the journey.'
First class of the new term at Hindolveston today, and as always it is a pleasure to catch up with friends we haven't seen for a month, and of course new faces. in my case its my first full class back since breaking both legs in June, and first day out without the reassurance of a walking stick (unless you count a spear) and despite being a bit wobbly on deep single weighted stances, it was good for me.
Another nice thing was to see the progress many people have made in the time I was off, There was evidently a lot of time spent on form with Gloria, and despite having a month off I could see the difference.
Its a funny thing but when it was my job to supervise all of the NAES Tai Chi and Yoga classes, I got used to seeing a lot of the same faces, in different classes, always looking for the same thing, never finding it, perhaps it was because they were always looking to their teachers to give it to them instead of finding it in their practice?
' always looking for the same thing, never finding it,'
Today at our first class of the new term, we took things gently, Standing pole Qigong and Short Tai Chi hand form, its nice when you see people getting something worthwhile from their practice, discovering something new, perhaps about Tai Chi, or perhaps about themselves. As teachers we can open the door, and point the way, but you have to make the journey.
