This summer I decided that I wanted to become a yoga instructor. After careful consideration, I enrolled in The Body Awakening Structural Yoga Teacher Training at South Boston Yoga. This past week was our Immersion Week, seven days of practicing yoga, teaching, chanting, learning about yoga, and exploring ourselves. To say the least, it has been incredible.
One thing that I found surprising about our Immersion Week was the great deal of emotions. It makes sense, though, since most people in the program had found enlightenment and/or calm with yoga from the various problems in their lives. We shared a lot, cried a lot, and learned an enormous amount about ourselves and each other. There was nothing but love and understanding for all. I feel so very lucky to have experienced it.
Now, we meet about every other Saturday for training. It will be quite odd to not be doing yoga every morning and getting to see my new friends. I can’t wait to meet again!
