I really enjoyed leading the Yoga warm up and the "Niky Training" on Sund Dec.23rd. Leading both of them made me more actively engaged.
In the Niky training, I was constantly checking to see if Gabe and Elizabeth were with the activity and if I was giving them enough time within each exercise. I wasn't able to as fully give myself to the Niky training as I normally do, because my attention was divided between doing the exercises and verbally leading them. I would watch the others during the verbal pauses while still doing the exercises myself, and I attempted to kinesthetically feel when it felt like it was time to change into something new.
I would like to practice leading the Yoga warm-up by myself at home, to get the language down to be clearer, so that I can be more present to everyone who is following my lead. I feel like I'm still getting used to verbalizing what is happening while also doing the poses, and it's a little bit jerky.
I found that I wanted to merge more Yoga and Linklater like I did when I was in acting school. I did love Andrea Haring's class and would like to also practice the vocal warm ups that Elizabeth Malone had us do last Sunday. It was also great to do some of the new RT exercises (Gabe) and blend them in with the stuff that we have already been doing.
