My first time trying to give instruction in yoga to my classmates. It was a good experience.
When we are practicing ourselves , we know what we are doing. When we are giving instructions to lead a class, is totally different.
Instruction has to be clear and precise. Counting of breathe is important, duration of breath has to be consistant. All the small details will lead to a pleasant and enjoyable class. It was my first time, I felt very nervous and afraid to make mistake. Later, I tell myself to calm down, take a deep breath, imagine I am teaching my fellow friends. Everyone learns from mistake.
Learning is a journey. It will never end.
