I did what I set out to do with my Warrior Cool workshop. When it was over I was satisfied. I wasn't ecstatic like 'oh my god I can't believe it'. I had more of a sense of alert accomplishment and calm. I had taken this idea and put it into words AND THEN I brought it into a real-time experience with other people. How cool.
I was well-prepared. I had practiced telling the story to a friend, and I told my rabbits the story of Virabhadra. I also recorded myself a few times, and tried to stop saying "you know" so much. And I also told the story of the warrior that the warrior poses are named after to Kuan Yin, and then to Kuan Yin and Nataraja, together with my flyer for the workshop. It all helped by focusing my attention, giving me context, and reminding me of my intention and purpose. So when it came time to speak, I could do it.
I also had prepared the sequense of poses, and researched and reviewed info on Virabhadrasana One, Two and Three.
And I had practiced in preparation to present this program at Yogaview.
The people showed up, and I was ready.
