I'm very excited to announce that I am officially a certified yoga teacher! When I started this journey back in August, my goal was simply to deepen my practice and learn more about myself and my body. Little did I know...
There are so many amazing things about attending yoga teacher training. Learning more about the asanas, the proper alignments, the modifications I can make in my own body and offer to others - so fascinating! I think the biggest change for me, though, has been in my heart.
I came to yoga teacher training feeling a little lost. I knew something was missing in my life, but I wasn't sure what. I have a beautiful family, a good job, a nice place to live. What could be missing? The answer is: passion. I've been stuck in a rut.
Enter yoga teacher training. Since my journey began eight months ago, I have learned so much about myself. During the course of the eight months of teacher training, my eyes and heart were opened to a whole lot of new information and ideas. The yamas and niyamas (the ethical guidelines of yoga) have had a huge impact on me, as well as the story of the Bhagavad Gita.
The teacher training I took was called dharma. Integrative Yoga Teacher Training. I had no idea how much impact the study of dharma would have on my life, but I'm taking the concept and running with it! Big changes are coming, and I'm so excited to see where my journey will lead me! More to come soon...
