Great class! Thank you! I liked the block modifications for prepping for lizard! Also, I'm currently studying linguistics (2nd masters) and Anja was wondering about the word crook as in crook of the elbow. Here's a word history from Etymonline:  crook (n.)

c. 1200, hook-shaped instrument or weapon; tool or utensil consisting of or having as an essential component a hook or curved piece of metal, from Old Norse krokr hook, corner, cognate with Old High German kracho hooked tool, of obscure origin but perhaps related to the widespread group of Germanic kr- words meaning bent, hooked. If there was an Old English *croc it has not been found.
From late 14c. as a bend or curved part; late 15c. as any bend, turn, or curve. From mid-15c. as a shepherd's staff with a curved top. Meaning swindler is American English, 1879, from crooked in figurative sense of dishonest, crooked in conduct (1708). Crook dishonest trick was in Middle English, especially in reference to the wiles of the Devil.

“You can do anything for 10 seconds!”
I remember holding a posture for what seemed to be forever when my instructor said these words in 2009. Those simple words packed so much power. It made me feel strong, reminded me to believe in myself and be present because time really does go by so fast. It helped me to use my mind and my body together – using my body to coach my mind and my mind to coach my body. With my instructor’s encouragement I knew that I could only progress if I believed I would and that belief kept my mind and my heart open for progress, change, and possibility.
When I decided to train to become a yoga instructor I knew I wanted my students to feel that same empowerment and faith within themselves, both on and off the mat. Every time you step on the mat, I want you to feel gratitude towards yourself for making that decision because you are making progress every time you make that step even if it is just for 15 minutes.
It doesn't matter what type of day I've had. Being in front of my students and encouraging them to find that same strength, peace and happiness that I find, whenever I’m on the mat, will always brighten my day. I hope my students know how grateful I am to see them on their personal journeys.
