One of the things I've realized while being home is that I think you could plop me in nearly any yoga studio in the world and I would feel at home. Sure, the teachers are different, but the incense smells the same, the props are familiar and the feeling I get from practicing is just as good.
I've even heard from people who have taken class in a different language while traveling that it's surprisingly easy.
To me, that's amazing. Yoga is so universal.
Another thing I'm noticing is that it's nice to take a step back and just be a student for a while. When something that you love also becomes your job, there's certainly a potential for burnout. I felt it just before I left Sydney. I was disillusioned and took a big step back from yoga world.
Thanks to this time in Vancouver, I'm feeling re-energized and inspired to come back and teach in Sydney. Today, I even had the pleasure of meeting this wise lady, who I'm looking forward to studying with in the future. Life is good.
