Ideas that won’t leave you

Yesterday I got an idea for a 5-session yoga series I want to offer as part of my YTT internship hours in October.

My mind found this particular idea irresistible, and I had a hard time NOT thinking about it. Ironically enough it is a course on “yoga for over-thinkers.” It seems a perfect offering for myself as well, so the irony was not lost on me.

Richard Bach said that “you teach best what you most want to learn.” Before now, I had been aware of the phrase, but not the attribution. So I was compelled to look up a little more about Bach, since I had heard of one of his books.

More than that, the idea of teaching in order to fully master a topic is something that has been present for much of my life in various opportunities.

Over-thinking is common to a lot of our lives and it’s a theme I was seeing in my coaching clients as well as others I have mentored on their careers as well.

So I will embrace this idea, and walk fully into it with the vulnerability and with the attention that this course requires. May I share some learning with my students, and more fully embrace the lessons as well.

Are you also an over-thinker?

    1. I think we get a lot of cultural reinforcement for over-thinking, and “living in our minds” rather than in our bodies. But I’ve found that when I come back to the body more often, my life works so much better. Thanks for your comment, Becky!
