Immersion
 

Enrolled in Yoga teacher training for February,

it is a three week complete immersion

into the deep end of the pool.

Wondering if this old dog can learn new tricks;

or will I simply be overwhelmed and overmatched?

Ten textbooks arrived that I have been devouring;

part of a completed reading list prerequisite.

Enthralled with the wisdom of this ancient science,

I take my personal journey to a higher level.

Physically, my body doesn’t move like it once did;

some areas of flexibility are only a memory.

Understanding that a good teacher does not

have to be a perfect, but he needs the ability to lead.

Lead to union with breath, body, and mind;

to the edge of safety; to the surrender of life’s shackles.

This is my strength, my forte, my value;

ready to swim deeply in yogic waters…

immersion into the present, and into my future.
 

February 9th to the 27th
