My boyfriend and I have been together five years today. Although I practice Ashtanga every day he has not practiced ashtanga, until recently. I had a social gathering for my students and they kept asking him why he didn't do yoga and telling him that he should. Marc is a martial artist, he has practiced martial art for 29 years and aikido for 13 years. He always felt he didn't have time for yoga aswell and I feel the same about aikido. We have always respected each others dedication. But after my students bombarded him, he felt he should give it a go. If any of my students are reading, thanks for your enthusiasm!
So the very next day, I taught him the surya namaskaras and the first two standing poses. He has practiced a few times since then. Then someone I know was unfortunately unable to make Kino's workshop next week and asked me if I knew anyone who wanted to go. Well I'm sure it wouldn't have been hard to find someone! I told Marc about this and he said he wanted to go.
I suggested he checked with Kino if she thought it was okay and she said, it would challenge and inspire him, nice one Kino. So basically we have one week to prepare him. I am really excited to be sharing this part of my life with him.
