I hope you are having a great Spring Break. We will meet up on Monday. We have six weeks to go before graduation. I have some updates for you and some minor changes.
You can turn in your homework on Wed. However if you haven't finished it all I am going to give you an extra week. I have not been able to get all of the homework graded as my family has all been home for Spring Break and we have had a week long volunteer commitment at the local music festival and in the midst of this I have a wretched eye infection. My plan in to sit in the office / classroom and grade papers and catch up the following Monday. With only six weeks to go if everyone makes all the classes, 13 in all each of you should graduate on time.
Also please make sure all your accounts are paid in full by April 30th, in order to graduate accounts have to be fully paid.
Changes: I do not think it is possible to get through every pose in the book before you practice teach, so I am going to take out a few that are likely not going to be taught in a general population class. You are still welcome to go over them and study them and I encourage you to do that on your own.
March 28th, Light on Yoga worksheet, chart poses
3/30: Chart poses, work on homework together
Topics I will cover during our hour morning meeting time:
Yogic Diet, The Business of doing Yoga (will take several days), Children's yoga. And we have a movie to watch.
Each of you will need to pick out a meditation to read, we will take turns teaching meditation, also you will take turns reading from the Sutra's each day. We will get into a pattern over the next two weeks of reading the Sutra's, Morning Yogic Discussion, Lunch, Afternoon physical practice and charting poses.
