So all this new yoga information that i’m trying to cram into my head is starting to clarify a little bit. I’ve read so much in such a short space of time it’s hard to remember everything. I know that there is a great deal i need to know to be a yoga teacher, but it’s all so overwhelming. I know that i’m not expected to know everything and i will learn more and more over the years. I think i’m ok with the history of yoga and all the hundreds of little stories about different Gods and all the important yogis and yoginis. I just cannot remember everyones names, but i’m enjoying reading about all of them. I cannot remember all the real names for the asanas (yoga postures), there are just too many. They just don’t seem to stick in my head, what am i to do, do i just continue with lets do a tree or a downward peeing dog or perhaps some sort of restorative pose with a bolster… I know it will get easier, i just need to learn some patience.
Patience is not my strongest point, i’ve always been like i want everything and i want it now. This needs to stop and i need to stop getting annoyed when the world doesn’t move at the speed i expect it to. I need to learn how to just be in the moment
On a lighter side, because not everything i want to write about needs to be deep !
I made the best french crèpes today, i followed a recipe from Martha Stewart, basically you just put all the ingredients in a blender and blend, can’t be easier than than, oh and the pan needs to be really hot and it’s not a bad idea to rub a but of oil on it with a paper towel before pouring the batter onto the pan. Here is a list of the ingredients, i’m sure for all the vegan non gluten people you can just substitute some of the ingredients.
1 cup of flour
1 and a half cups of milk
3 tablespoons of melted butter or oil
1 tablespoon of sugar
¼ of a teaspoon of salt
