I have been doing more teaching than training for the last month. I am finding that teaching karate classes are quite suited to my personality. I get to boss people around, they obey… it is quite fantastic. It also has me using my creativity, making sure people remain engaged while still learning their material and constantly improving. SO yeah, teaching is apparently my thing. I always seem to end up in that sort of Matron role.
The problem with teaching, I am not training as much! Four hours of my evening time, that was once devoted to my own training has now become teaching time. The reality is that teaching is no where near training. Not if you want to do so properly. To combat this, I have been arriving to class early, staying late but it is still not quite enough.
Finding time to train is becoming difficult. My day is filled with work obligations, I am trying to create so much new content on a regular basis. As well as doing phone sessions, Skype sessions, chat sessions… you get the idea. Basically, there are not enough hours in the day. And I am really at a loss on how to combat this conundrum. While I want to continue teaching, and love doing so, I also have my own material to work on. A lot of material to work on. My ambition for Nidan this October will likely not come into fruition but I still have so much work to do.
My ideal practice is 2 hours a day. Where am I going to find those extra hours. It was suggested that I spend my mornings practicing. But I love my mornings. My morning are completely about me. I ritualistically make coffee, sit on my balcony and just let my mind wonder. There may be a book involved too. I need that time and am not willing to sacrifice it. Perhaps it is time to change my ideal time to something more reasonable. An hour would probably suffice. Finding an hour during the day is far less daunting a task than two hours.
How much time do you devote to training, working out, running, etc a day?
Something I can never stress enough is posture in Femdom sessions. It may seem silly. Something that really does not seem important at first glace. Posture in Femdom? What does that mean? A slave, while inferior should always strive to achieve the best possible posture in any position his Mistress puts him in. Slouching, humped back, rolled shoulders, these are completely unacceptable for any slave of Mine. Inferiority does not equate small or meek. Okay, in some ways it does. But this should not be reflected in how you hold yourself. Especially in how you hold yourself around Me.
Whether our sessions are in person, over the phone, via Skype, texting, poor posture in Femdom is inexcusable. I understand that your knees hurt, your back aches, your arms are tired, insert other excuse but there is no reason to present yourself poorly in My presence. Kneeling is a crucial component to My sessions. I like My slaves and subs kneeling for Me, either for short bursts of time or extended throughout the entire session.
Those aches and pains you feel, the tired muscles and sore joints are a significant part of your training. Posture in Femdom is a sacrifice. you are sacrificing your comfort to show Me that you are proud to serve. That I am making an effort to control you and therefor you are willing to endure any minor pains that may come up during the session.
This does not only apply to masochists. The pain is part of your training. It is symbolic of your willingness to submit yourself to Me and My will. your back is straight, your chest out, shoulders squared but relaxed. The amount of time you spend in this position will increase as time goes by and you will notice a difference in how long you can hold positions. In turn this embrace of proper posture will be reflected in your daily life, even while not worshiping Me. It will be a positive change in your life.
Practice kneeling for Me, with proper posture and tell Me how it feels.
