Heavily Meditated


200 Hours Later

I’ve been teaching yoga for years, and I’ve certainly gotten comfortable in the style in which I teach.  If you know me, you know I don’t like staying comfortable for long, so when I set my goals at the beginning of 2017, I added 200 RYT to my list.

When I started researching my options for teacher training, I was floored when I saw the number of studios that offer 200 hour programs.  It’s pretty amazing to see how yoga has impacted so many people.  I thought the choices might overwhelm me, but actually, when I started making calls and visits to local providers, the decision was easy to make.

CorePower Yoga felt like home immediately.  I started my 200 hour teacher training program late February and in 8 weeks I took 62 yoga classes, plus 72 hours of lectures and practice teaching, plus an undetermined amount of self-study, reading and writing about yoga.

This was a lot to fit in, no doubt.  On top of training full time and remembering to feed and water my 2 kids, there were definite moments of panic.

Me, 8 weeks ago:

Nonetheless, each day made a little more sense.  Pockets of time that I didn’t know existed were uncovered and the friendships and connections made on this journey were invaluable.  We were all making the most of every minute of every day.  One very apparent benefit of taking that many yoga classes: You are constantly being guided to set an intention, remember to breathe, and meditate for at least a few minutes every day.  It was almost like an intense training program for chilling out.  Who doesn’t need that.

Me, 8 weeks later:

Of course, even though the completion of this course is just the beginning, it is very hard to say goodbye to the wonderful people I met through teacher training.  I hope that we stay connected with each other <3

Now that I’m done, I’m ready to share what I’ve learned with you!  I’m looking forward to adding  new elements to the online programs and cannot wait to share new adjustments and sequences with you in studio.

Why Yoga?

Yoga can be something different for everyone.  You may start for one reason and a completely different purpose may be uncovered a day, week, year or years later.  It doesn’t matter if you are flexible or have good balance.  It doesn’t matter if you’re young or old.  It’s accessible to everyone in some form.

Below is a brief sequence designed to help you build a home practice.  It includes some basic elements that lengthen you body (front, back, sides and even you feet).  It  massages your organs and relaxes your posture.  This is a great way to start your day, end it or perk up in the afternoon.  After you follow the video a few times, you’ll likely have it memorized and be able to practice it wherever you are 🙂

 

Shout out to my amazing TT group!  Love you all!!

    I am really loving the theme/design of your site. Do you ever run into any browser compatibility problems? A few of my blog visitors have complained about my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera. Do you have any advice to help fix this issue?

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    Hi there! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when browsing from my iphone. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this problem. If you have any recommendations, please share. With thanks!

    Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
