How does yoga teacher training change your life?

You'll start to notice things in your body that you've never noticed before. Even better, you'll experience a new appreciation and acceptance of your body and what it can do. Yoga helps us to connect with our strengths and to recognize our limitations. Teacher training helps you to see the power and ability that you really have.

Learn to practice, modify and sequence more than 250 yoga poses in accordance with the ancient principles of Hatha Yoga. Sometimes I feel like it's the only thing that really helps me relax and let go of my (mentioned above) stress. That's why I enjoy drinking both as a celebration (“social lubrication allows me to let myself go even more”) and when I'm not feeling very well. I have struggled with binge eating and starvation in my adult years.

As a former “fitness addict”, I had a very strict and very low-calorie, regulated eating plan combined with intense hours of exercise every day. But I would eat junk food (or bread or cheese) in moments of “weakness and sadness”, and then spend the next few days punishing myself. I attributed a lot of self-esteem to my appearance, especially my weight. Every time the intense exercise and restriction stopped (whether due to a long work trip or when I moved to Bangkok or Rio de Janeiro), I gained 20 to 30 pounds, which is a LOT on a 5 foot 2 inch frame.

And he would hate me for it. Eating seemed like a test and it was failing. I was constantly thinking about food and exercise, and I hated myself for it. I've always wanted to do a quiet retreat.

Part of the YTT consisted of a 3-day silent retreat and, honestly, it was the hardest thing I've ever done in my life. I believe that the most efficient path for me to achieve this help is to obtain a license as a therapist. Now, I love giving advice on my travel blog and I love “advising my friends in their time of need”, but it could be infinitely more useful with the right training.

initialize ();. Before attending yoga teacher training, many people think of yoga as a way to strengthen their bodies and to empty or relax their minds. When I started my yoga teacher training course, I began to pay much more attention to my own practice and to better understand the concept of yoga in general. Whether it's starting a career as a yoga teacher or something else that comes from your heart, teacher training gives you time to reflect on what you've done with your life so far and what really matters to you.

The Arhanta Yoga teacher training course program gives you the opportunity to grow gradually and naturally in the role of a yoga teacher. Not only will this training empower you to teach yoga asanas in a variety of environments with confidence and ease, but it will also inculcate in you the values and principles of the yoga culture that can help improve your personal life in profound and transformative ways. It was during his 300-hour advanced teacher training at Yogamaya, with Stacey Brass Russell and Bryn Chrisman, that he found the path to bhakti. You may attend your teacher training course with a certain goal in mind and find that your thoughts and feelings about this goal evolve throughout the course.

In addition to all of the above, practicing yoga intensively throughout teacher training allows you to be more in touch with yourself. The more profound changes that occur over time are also evident, and it's something that I'm happy to see as a yoga teacher. My 200-hour yoga teacher training is open to both aspiring yoga instructors and anyone who wants to deepen their personal practice. It offers different styles of yoga and meditation classes, including Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin, Restorative, Yoga Nidra, Prana Nidra, Prana Vidya Healing, chakra meditation, and other yoga and meditation techniques.

So, it's scary to finally commit to something that you've wanted to do for years, and for me, I kept finding reasons why I shouldn't commit to teacher training. I like to think that I've always been a friendly, talkative and sociable person, but my training as a yoga teacher prompted me to take a step back and really evaluate my relationships. .
