Two weekends ago I attended a 3 day training with Rainbow Kids Yoga. I came home buzzing with excitement and inspiration, having met such nice people and been introduced to so many new ideas. I loved that the teaching method was all about getting us to play as many of the games as possible, and learn by doing, rather than just reading course material.
My favourite part of the training was the fact that we got to participate in a community class, given by Cayetana, and we saw for ourselves how well the Rainbow Kids Yoga approach works, especially when delivered with confidence and love <3. It was lovely to see the kids having so much fun through their imaginations and with their parents. I feel we all had so much trust in each other, despite having only met a few days before. So I'd like to thank RKY, Caye and all of the other students that attended to make it such a special 3 days.
It reminded me how playful we can all be once we drop our ideas of how we should behave, and how we should have fun. On that playful note, I also attended my first acroyoga class last week, and had a blast! Like their slogan says at www.acrobaticyoga.ie, "because it's fun to get turned upside down". I can vouch for that.
In my classes we've started trying out handstands, and like Tiffany Cruikshank was explaining at her workshop the other work, inversions can be so enjoyable thanks to the way that they pull you right into the present. You can't think about anything else when you're trying to balance upside down on your hands! And so they allow you this focus, a heightened awareness of everything that's going on in your body as you begin to orientate yourself from this new perspective.
