What an exciting week! Last last Tuesday I announced my first online anatomy course (in Spanish) and was taken aback by the response. Within the first hour of posting my newsletter I received 3 inquiries from people as far away as Brussels and the Canary Islands. Even more exciting has been the enthusiasm and encouragement received from people near and far. It was an unexpected and wonderful surprise and I want to say thank you!
Launching a new project is always a bit scary. My main fear is that of making a fool of myself in “public”. Maybe it’s because I can’t see the actual people on the other end of the screen so I imagine a slew of ugly trolls waiting to launch their poisonous comments at me. And this fear holds me back when it’s time to advertise a new project.
What helped me overcome my reserve was the encouragement of a group of strangers at a local meetup. At this particular meeting, each of us was expected to present a project and ask for feedback. My project was this online course. The observations I received in return, unanimously conceded that my hesitation was coming from fear, rather than from an actual obstacle. Ha! Again and again I see that my imaginary trolls are my greatest limitation.
So now that the ice is broken, and the trolls are contained, I’d love to know this: who is interested in an English version of my anatomy course?
A little bit about the course:
I originally designed this course for yoga practitioners in my local community with the intention of introducing them to the subject of anatomy. A lot of yogis want to know their body better but are daunted by the vast and complex subject of human anatomy. The course I’ve designed is intended to introduce yoga practitioners to anatomy in a simple, easy to understand manner. You will learn the names and location of some of the main muscles and bones of the human body as well as their implication for movement.
Sound interesting? I’d love to hear your thoughts and comments! Please write me at email@example.com
