I know it does. But it will fly by in the blink of an eye.
The more I teach, the more I see the need for integration. For space to digest, to share about what is present, or take some time to journal about it.
I have thought about making these sessions 90 minutes in duration, but I know I would be doing all of us a disservice.
With the work I intend to share with you, we’d likely not have enough time for you to truly reap the benefits of the exercises and practices we’ll explore.
As an example: an Opening to Grace practice is most beneficial when it takes around 75 minutes, to shorten this to less time will change the impact this practice may have on you. Add 15 minute of Expressive Writing to this, and we’ve already maxed out our time together. When we add some cushioning to this, so we can check-in on how everyone’s doing at the start of practice, and enjoy a guided visualization or some soothing breathwork at the end of practice, you’ll be able to feel complete, nourished, and have had time to connect with those around you, as well as the magic being inside of you.
The last thing I’d want is for you to feel a sense of rush, like there’s too much stuffed into each session, or that we’d consistently run overtime – which would mean not honouring our time and commitment to one another.
So while we may not always fill 2 hours, I will always make sure we will be complete within those two hours. That you’ve had time to Bring and Be with All of You, and can step off the mat feeling ready for a good night’s rest.
