Sometimes things just happen and this week was one of those weeks when everything just falls into place. Being a teacher is not just planning the class so every bit of the body is worked, it is being able to read who is in front of you and change and adapt accordingly.
On Monday the class sang along to every single song I played raising everyone’s spirits and painting a huge smile on my face. Tuesday brought another new lady who smiled through the whole hour and we worked the whole body from top to bottom from our finger-tips to our toes and every bit in between. I wished I had (yet again) a video camera as everyone looked so happy.
At Medau we worked with 1m x1m square scarves concentrating on our feet, driving forward and moving backwards with confidence, changing directions...and turning!
It was, as they say, a good week! Everyone rose to the challenge and we ended with smiles, rosy cheeks and a great sense of personal satisfaction.
