If you haven’t read my last two recaps post yoga teacher training you can find them here and here. Today I am diving deeper into actually teaching post yoga training and setting up my own studio space. So if you dream of becoming a yoga teacher, opening your own studio or perhaps are just super nosy you are going to love today’s blog post.
If you missed the first recap of my Yoga Teacher Training you can find the recap here it runs through the entire Yoga experience, who I trained with, how I prepped, the highs, the lows, what I think you need to know and how to prepare for your own experience. Safe to say it’s choc full of insights. But the conversation was barely scratching the surface, I knew I wanted to dive deeper into this conversation so I am so excited for the next instalment of this recap outlined below.
It’s safe to say I sat down for 40mins (pomodoro style) and the words literally flowed out of me. So here we are diving deeper into the spiritual lessons and mainly the big differences I noticed in myself post teacher training.
Over 4,000 words written so far and it’s safe to say there is still another blog post in me. Next I want to speak more about how I have gone with the teaching part of yoga post teacher training. And that’s a crazy fun, full of lessons journey within itself. But for right now, let’s dive in!
I see that important project you want to launch out into the world sitting on your computer desk. Maybe it’s half finished, maybe you’re afraid to press publish or maybe it’s still an idea in your head. I bet you thought you were being lazy. That you don’t want it bad enough, it’s not your time or simply you don’t have your shit together – clue it’s not that.
You procrastinate, put it off, make excuses, decide that the dishwasher definitely needs to be unpacked right now and cannot wait another minute. But guess what you aren’t lazy, you’re not procrastinating. Did you ever stop to think that your procrastinating is actually because you are terrified of your own perfectionist tendencies and they are holding you back.
Let me paint the scene.
Fear can stop you doing a lot of things.
It can stop you taking a month off your coaching business while you complete a yoga teacher training because you fear that everyone will forget about you and all of your clients will disappear.
It can tell you that you have to keep working every second of every day, and if you do stop then you will be left behind and forgotten. So don’t stop working. Don’t rest and don’t take a pause.
It can paralyse you with recent world events, maybe you want to contribute but you fear to say the wrong thing, how can you help?
It’s a little taboo isn’t is, there’s some things that are simply off topic. You know, just not ‘appropriate’ to speak about? But I really want to bring to light a conversation that I hope might help you.
First let me paint the scene, I had just quit my part time job. It was official I was going full time in my business – it was time.Then a couple of days later my partner was off on a weekend away and I was left crying on the couch, despaired.
How am I actually going to do this?
How am I going to earn money from this?
I mean enough to pay my bills?
