I have officially finished my placement. After 2 weeks I am so tired I think I might just die right now. I have spoken to my friends and my host teacher and it has been reveled that this is the mysterious, yet very real, Teacher Tired. It generally hits around week 5 or 6 and gets progressively worse as the term goes on. This is of course exhilarated for new teachers. To put it lightly, you end up talking to everyone and everything (this includes pets and inanimate objects) like they are a student, spelling becomes a much harder task, your bed time progressively gets earlier (started the 2 week placement going to bed at 9pm, it is 6pm right now and I am totally tucked up in bed writing this post) and finally, you hear the school bell ring in your sleep. I am so excited for a sleep in!
Anyway, back to the post. I have made these cute little salutation layouts. I would normally do the moon salutation first. I do this because I have normally just gotten out of bed and there is no way in hell I am dragging my butt on a yoga mat that early to just hate every second of my practice. I love these salutations, despite my complaints about the sun salutation, but the last thing I want to do at the end of the day is yoga (well that is until after I’ve actually sat down for the first time that day) so I practice in the morning. It is best to have a very straightforward routine that requires very little thought and you are less likely to forget what comes next and have to check.
I am currently working out a routine that is “cold season” friendly yoga routine. I am hoping to finish this off tomorrow and then it will be posted by Thursday night. I hope you enjoyed this mildly delirious post!
