Apologies for the absence. I've been meaning to sit down and document my classes, but then something always distracts me. Now it's raining and the laundry pile is slowly but surely becoming smaller, so I have a bit of time to write.
Classes have been good. I'm slowly moving away from the Warrior dance flow and headed towards triangle/revolved triangle/half moon flow. Lately, we've been approaching both half moon and revolved half moon, by way of crescent twist/revolved triangle.
Last night I interrupted my own flow to demo an arm balance, and couldn't quite get the flow back after that. People began doing their own thing, and the class got a bit choppy. Talking with B about it last night and Bettina this morning, and am leaning towards thinking that a class has to be one or another--flow or inversion heavy. I tried combining the two, but the levels of both ability and interest were quite varied, and no one really bit the tripod headstand/crow/jump back to plank move. But the flow portion, the first 3/4ths of class, was quite nice and everyone moved with fluidity.
What do you guys expect from a Level 2 flow class? I have some ideas, but am curious what everyone else thinks. Arm balancing, or just a really nice flow with loads of vinyasa?
I'm thinking of ditching the whole sequence, anyhow, and starting fresh with Bird of Paradise. More balancing! I am quite liking the binding and half moon stuff we've doing, and tomorrow morning might toss in bird of paradise to see how she flies with the early bird crowd.
