I am a bit of a chatter bug. I over share. I talk a lot. It is just the way I am wired. I like silence. I like to sit in silence and I find long quiet walks in the woods lovely. But if someone is there with me I talk and talk and talk.
When it comes to yoga I have lots to say. I find the whole subject matter fascinating. Yoga has helped me so much in my life. What I am realizing though is that my chattering isn’t really necessary in a yoga class. In fact it is completely unnecessary. Yoga isn’t a lecture hall. It is a shared space for people to sit with themselves and their bodies. It is a place where exploration can occur. It is a place for quietness. I am going to work on talking less in my classes. Empty space is good. Silence is golden.
