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 still remember the first time I was finally dragged along to do yoga with my mother. I was in my second year of university and experiencing crippling levels of anxiety. After struggling for far too long, my mother exclaimed, “that’s it, you are coming to yoga with me, you need to relax.”
I was adamant I wasn’t going to enjoy it. It would be too slow, far too boring, and I wouldn’t get anything from it. And then I tried it. I practiced yoga in a small dark room with 8 other women at times with a yoga teacher I loved. And then week after week I looked forward to that experience. I would drive home and have the best sleep of the week.
Slowly, I totally got my ass handed to me when we did a flow vinyasa that left me sweating before the heaters were even turned on. That was it, I was hooked and I have been practicing yoga ever since.
My head has seriously been spinning as of late. I recently moved apartments and I couldn’t think straight, between boxes everywhere, packing, unpacking, getting my period, familiarising myself with a new area and home, like’s felt chaotic. Not to mention finishing the Beautiful Business Mastermind and starting my Yoga Teacher Training soon, as well as going full time within my own business it’s safe to say I was all over the place, couldn’t figure out my up from down and generally feeling funky.
This showed up in life as a short fuse, complaining about everything, being restless, but not being able to stop and take a break.
I couldn’t shake it.
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?
