After a weekend surrounded by wonderful yogis, teachers & students I got to thinking, about a groups energy & power vs. our own individual power. In a group there is support & a sharing of energy as opposed to just relying on yourself for everything.
So Have I missed the boat on some things? Why train alone – we are a community. Building together energizing and supporting one another is so much stronger than standing alone. I realized I always train alone & I rely on yoga to fulfill the support and energy flow with other that a yoga class can offer. Then why not bring that into the rest of my training.
It’s like being is a yoga pose standing in place alone. When you are instructed in a class or adjusted in class you have someone leading you & guiding you into a better physical & mental place. You have someone pushing you further than your mental capability believes it can go, finding that deeper place.
Maybe it’s time to look for strength not only in our selves but also to reach out to like minded friends and support one another –coming back to building own personal training communities.
