Do Your Homework and Then Let Go!

I’m looking forward to teaching a workshop in Corlette in beautiful Port Stephens (NSW) on Sunday sponsored by Nikki Schilling of Yoga Sphere.
I tend to be well-prepared for a seminar that I’m leading. My husband, who is the king of the ‘winging it’ type of presenters, would probably say that I over-prepare.
In the past, the amount of time and effort I put into planning a workshop was usually fuelled by concerns that I wouldn’t do a good enough job.
I don’t know why it took me so long to figure this out (maybe a couple of decades) – if you are worrying about not doing well in leading a group, then you won’t enjoy the teaching experience. And, it naturally follows that the workshop participants won’t have a great time either.
So, I believe I’ve planned the most important ingredient into Sunday’s event, enjoyment, and that everything else will follow.
