Doggy Door Pose. This week in my people classes we worked on hamstring and hip openers. Something I'll bring into today's Barking Buddha Yoga class at The Humane Society.
Forward bending poses help open the hips and hams and also cultivate patience while calming the nervous system. I have a puppy in my current series who is also helping me cultivate patience. He is very active and vocal during class. I'm working with his person to discover new ways to introduce a puppy to the class so we are all cultivating patience and working together to learn. This dog is the youngest dog I've ever had in a class so it's been a fabulous learning opportunity for me as a teacher. With a few positive reinforcement training tools he's starting to "get" it. He's really cute and if it's o.k. with his mom I'll try to get a picture of him today to post on the blog. Happy Sunday!
....Still don't have the teacher training dates, although we've decided on either July or November. Sorry, I'm usually not this flaky with stuff, but it's a new endeavour that's taking more time then expected to figure out.
