I am not because I think.
I was reading the blog of a very inspiring woman who is recording her experience as she trains for an Iron Man Triathlon in November. She described a breatkthrough in her running when she began to separate her breathing from the rhythm of her running legs. She said she would focus on taking long yoga breaths as if the top half of her body was relaxing doing yoga while her legs were kicking up the dust at a very fast pace.
I could relate that to my trying to divorce myself from the rhythm of the classroom situation around me. If my mind can stay still like calm water, regardless of what I encounter in my day... that could be powerful.
