Teaching yoga, class 2

Second class, group B today. The class was so full that I had to give up my spot and just walk around and do poses where ever as I said them. I think at one point, each of my hands and feet were on different mats. Thank goodness for flexible yogis who are comfortable enough for me to do that. I wasn't as nervous this class. In fact, it was such a rush to spread what is such a joyful experience for me. I even had it together enough to play Krishna Das on my iPhone from my Pandora app during savasana. What conference room? It's now a bona fide yoga studio. Okay, maybe not, but I did convince building operations to move out a unused bookshelf and filing cabinet so I could fit in some more yogis. Hoping I can fit in 6 more. Never knew that I would start out teaching 15 students in a class.

Now if only I could convince my company to give me a budget to buy props for restorative poses. How lovely would be to relax back into supta baddha konasana in the middle of your work day? Like chocolate.
