Why I write...

I love going to a yoga class where the words conveyed by the teacher is dancing with the flow we are doing. I love to tune into the sensations that is being created by the mixture, and so I love it when I can do the same in my own teaching. When I can make the students feel what I felt when I made the sequence or theme for the class. And even better, when I can awaken something that makes them open for growth, perhaps something that inspire them to challenge themselves, or to take the next step towards themselves...

So I write. When I hear something beautiful in a class I attended. Or in an online video. I take note of it. Sometimes I take notes after watching a movie at the cinema, because there were words resonating with me. Maybe the words come from a conversation, or simply a thought process. It doesn't matter. I write it all down. 

When I practice on my mat. At home. I always have a book next to me to write down any sensations. Any thoughts that come up. Anything new I discover on the journey. And all of these things become my own journey to discovering my own voice. My own way of getting it out. All the things I want to share. And so I can go back to my book. When I have a theme in mind for a yoga class, or perhaps looking through my book I discover a theme for a class. 

I also write because for me writing itself becomes a sort of therapy off the mat. I write when there are certain things going on in my life that I can't control. I write when there are certain things I don't understand. Or if there are thoughts I am trying to put together. Thoughts I am trying to make sense of. I breath. So I write. And as I write, often things become clearer...
