A yoga teacher training update

Hi friends! Hope you’re having a wonderful afternoon. I’m so glad to hear I’m not the only one who was feeling meh about Three Wishes. Farewell, book. Starting something new tonight! (I have quite a few on the Kindle I haven’t cracked open yet.) I got my Invisalign aligners today -more on that to come, but I am so happy with them so far- and am getting ready for afternoon BODYPUMP. I’ve had a few requests for an update on yoga teacher training, so I thought I’d do a little post since we’re about halfway through the 200-hour program. When I finish, I’ll write a final recap and will include details on teacher training if you’re local and interested, and also teaching details… because I’ve decided that I do want to teach.

When I first signed up, I was really excited because it’s something I’ve always wanted to do to deepen my own practice. I desired to learn more about the spiritual aspect of yoga, in addition to the correct alignment for all of my favorite poses. I figured that going through yoga teacher training would help me as a group fitness instructor and trainer, and that I’d be able to take the learning points off the mat and into my own life. So far, that’s exactly what has happened.
