haha..I wish! I mean their DVDs. My order finally arrived, so I watched these two senior teachers do their thing on my laptop just now.
I got both David Swenson's first and second/third series..and its really eye opening watching third series. Its definitely gravity defying. I don't know if I'd get there...well probably one day in the far far future maybe. I loved David's encouraging words and pacing. I have fast breaths and his counts were comfortable for me. He's also very comforting and encouraging..asking the viewers to take things easy and concentrate on the breath.
John Scott on the other hand has a more clinical approach to the way he teaches..on this DVD anyway. And I found myself giggling over the way he likes to say "inhaale.. exhaaaaale..." Anyhow again its eye opening to see how he practices and all those handstand vinyasas.
I practiced primary along with David's DVD. Its great..and I think it might be the one I'd most like to practice with in the future. I've also got Richard Freeman's as well, but Richard although gives some great alignment and tips, has a pace thats WAY too slow for me.
On another note, my classes today at the gym were great! I taught a hot class in the morning..which is very beginnerish, and then a flow/vinyasa type class after. I love teaching this particualar flow class, mainly because the people who come are already very experienced and have been practising for a while. I'm really honored that they decide to come to my class, considering that I'm such a new/junior teacher. These people have amazing abilities, and I get to do all sorts of stuff in class that I typically cannot teach in other classes, even if they are flow or Ashtanga classes.
Ahem..and since my recent "almost" proficiency in koundinyasana, I also decided to teach it as an option in class today..good thing I didn't fall out of it while demoing;P However, I'm running dry in ideas on new stuff to teach nowadays, especially since the run of the mill stuff has been taught over and over already. Got to find some new material soon...
Okie, I'm going out karaokeing tonite..so my post ends here...
