Last Saturday's BackMitra event had a great turnout, even though…
I feel like I’ve neglecting you as it’s been ages since I posted anything in English. I apologize for that! Here’s a little recap as to what I’ve been up to:
In July I launched my first ever online anatomy course (in Spanish) and I’ve been putting all my energy there, making sure things run smoothly and that everyone is happy and cared for. So far, it’s been a really positive and fun experience. I thoroughly enjoy delivering the classes and interacting with my students online.
I’m so pleased with our group’s diversity: we’ve got a majority of long time yoga teachers who bring a wealth of knowledge and personal experience to the table. We’ve also got an acupuncture student and a massage therapist in the mix. I’m enjoying getting to know everyone and seeing how the group’s interactions are unfolding in our private facebook group. (We’ve got a facebook group that serves as a forum to share our homework and anatomy-related information).
Some of the people who’ve signed up for the course are from Barcelona and Catalonia, while others log in to our virtual conference room from as far away as Madrid and San Sebastian. It’s exciting to meet people from all over without leaving the house. It’s also nice to see familiar faces and to engage with people I’ve known for ages but whom I don’t usually get to see very often.
Another thing I quite like about the online format is the amount of freedom that it grants us. We can communicate easily and fluidly via email, voice memos and Skype. Those who cannot attend the “live” weekly classes have access to video-recordings of each session. That way everyone moves forward at their own pace while remaining connected to and encouraged by the group’s progress.
This versatility is a game-changer for me. I didn’t realize how many people wanted to attend my classes but couldn’t, due to travel time, scheduling, work and family commitments. It’s actually quite hard to find a time and a place that works for everyone but it seems as though the internet -and all it’s nifty tools- has given us a respite and made life easier for everybody.
So, what’s next?
I’m eager to launch this same course in English. I’m curious to see what I can offer to the English-speaking yoga & bodywork community. I also love the convenience of reaching people far away without all the overhead costs of travelling! I’ll be offering up some dates soon!! Stay tuned 🙂
In the meantime, I’d love to know what I can help you with. What are your anatomy needs? What issues would you like to have clarity about? What do you want to learn? Email me!
Have a great week!
