Week 8: THANK GOD!

Week eight is done! Bring on Week 9!


  1. You are radiant!I don't think it is possible for you to be a 'strict dialogue no energy teacher'. You have so much to offer. Cheers.

  2. Firstly you look really great:) and yes i also agree about being a great teacher is more than dialogue as I have had class with teacher who did that and I did not like it or have a good class...I like teachers with energy who also do dialogue but also techniques and personality and also make it personal with the students(eg telling yes thats correct posture/no u need adjust posture) etc .....
    CONGRATS FOR GETTING THIS FAR...please blog when you graduate and before u start teaching.

  3. You are so fricking awesome. You will be great when you go back to training as a visiting teacher. (Oh yes!!!)

    I maintain that there are three things that make a great teacher: Dialogue, Energy, and Love. ALL OF THESE ARE ABSOLUTELY MANDATORY. Caps locks cannot express how strongly I feel about this. Hee. You've got it all going on. Have so much fun when you start to TEACH!!

    Oh and P.S. don't stress the timing too much. That all falls into place pretty easily when you've got the dialogue going on. Just buy a watch with a second hand (I highly recommend this!) and then get in there. :)

  4. Love... I didn't even think about that one, J! Thank you!!

  5. I just wanted to tell you what an inspiration you have been for me and many others! I have LOVED your blog and video each week. I am doing the 60 day challenge and started it around the same time TT started, so it has been fun to watch you grow as a teacher, as I grew with my practice! I will finally be done with my challenge next week :) Whenever I was down on myself for going to class everyday, I would always think that it could be worse and I could be doing two everyday! Realizing how difficult TT must be, I have all the respect in the world for you and wish you the BEST OF LUCK! Sad because my sister practiced at the studio you will be at on Bloor, and just moved to Calgary
    :( Thank you for sharing your experience and keep blogging my friend!!

  7. Aww!!! Thanks Mrs. Harl! The two classes a day ended up being the easiest things we did here. It's insane!

    Sarah!!!! Squee!!!! I didn't intend to put the product placement there... But it does look intentional, huh?
