When I was in high school I went to the dance program – and I guess our school were a bit into contemporary/modern dance, in our training as well as in our dance history lessons as in the performances we went to see every week.
Since then I’ve loved to see all kinds of contemporary pieces. Some of them are brilliant – some of them are super weird – some of them are both!
Today I had one of the most successful dancers/choreographers on the swedish contemporary scene I’d say – and I’ve seen a lot of her work through the years.
Before class she said; I’ve pulled a hamstring so I’m gonna be super careful and take it really easy in all the forward folds.
During class, her super careful and easy was a lot more flexible then most people in class, with healthy hamstrings.
Which once again made it clear – everything is relative.
My truth isn’t necessary your truth. Especially in yoga.
That’s what I like about it, among other things.
I teach yoga in a gym environment – majority of the participants are not 100% dedicated yogis and yoginis.
But, the past months I’ve seen such a huge improvement in class when it comes to work on its own terms – and work on the level that benefits you at the most.
Self-discovery, understanding and development.
For that, I’m grateful, happy and proud.
