Such a Joy Being a Student Again

Standard

It is such a joy
being a student again.

Tonight
I didn’t have to speak–
I could listen
I didn’t have to watch
anyone else–
I could watch myself.
I didn’t have to plan a class
or walk around
making sure everyone
was focusing on their practice–
I could focus on my own practice,
my own body, my own breath.

It felt like a vacation!
I laughed,
I felt delighted.
It all felt so playful and free.

It is such a joy
being a student again.

  1. Lorien, I used to teach yoga and when I decided to stop it was because of all those reasons you posted on. It’s a huge responsibility to be a yoga teacher — I always thought of it as giving yoga rather than taking yoga.
