Yoga Teacher Training is a Good Way to Look at Your Life

The title just about says all that I mean to ramble on about here. The yoga teacher training is a good way to look at your life. It's a time to reflect on the yamas and niyamas (see sidebar for quick explanations) and to see what our life alignment is like. At least, that's how I see it. If your internal alignment is off and you don't even know how to find it, your external poses won't be of much value.

So our group is starting to heat up. Kat and I are helping keep the structure together, to support the container that people are doing their work in. It's hot for us too.

Co-teaching is a pose as well. Many yoga teachers rarely get a chance to co-lead a class or a workshop for a variety of reasons including that working with someone else mean you're working with another person and people have stuff! In my co-leader, Kat, I've found someone I can be totally myself around and I can let her be as she is and we share our knowledge and our space and I think if I had to be in space ship with anyone where I'd have to spend years with someone, she'd be in it. Oh wait, I am on a space ship called Earth and she is in it and so are you and all of the other people...I'm hearing a voice from Kids in the Hall or some show say this :)

Anyhow, the teacher training is in full-swing. If you ever want to take a look at your life and you don't even want to be a yoga teacher, I think a yoga teacher training would be a good way to do it.

I was very tempted to do the summer intensive program, but decided in the end to enrol in the teacher training program this fall (at Rama Lotus). I like your writings about it here, and hope you will post more about your experience with the summer intensive. Looking forward to looking at my life more in depth this fall!

Hey Ninja!

I look forward to meeting you in the fall then. The summer program has its own sweetness because of the intensity but the fall one is awesome too and really does the trick :)

Really Yoga is a wonderful exercise that gives all the energy you need and the workout without any side effects. It is also the best way to burn extra calories. I also use Yoga for morning workout. It helps for a better start of the day and to burn extra fat. It keeps me in shape and good health. On YA really you can share the health tips too. I like it!!
