Two short months ago, I started yoga teacher training at CorePower. I knew that by the time we finished it would be spring (although, it’s currently winter again in Minnesota).
If you’ve been around since Everme started, you’ve probably heard me talk about a creatively designed life. Signing up for yoga teacher training is a part of actively living my creatively designed life.
There are many reasons why I wanted to go through teacher training but here are a few of the main reasons:
I love learning. I am a dedicated, lifelong learner and this was an opportunity that brought together several of my highest values: mental and physical health, expanding my knowledge and deep connection with others.
I like following the rules. Although there are no rules in yoga, a mental roadblock I couldn’t get past while in class was “am I doing this right?” Being married to a personal trainer has made me super aware of alignment and safety during physical movement.
I wanted to see if I could do something without requiring it to be a step toward something else. I am the queen of achievement and planning and goal setting and visioning. I am a joker at just being. Well, not comptetely but you understand. Embarking on a journey that wasn’t tied to an outcome was so liberating. I was able to simply learn and enjoy rather than feel the pressure of ‘what’s next?’.
So, what’s your version of yoga teacher training? How can you embrace the creatively designed life(style)?
P.S. I graduate on Saturday April 13 and would love to immediately start working with beginners / people newer to yoga. Let me know if you know of anyone!
