1. What inspired you to make the decision to get your certification?
I made the decision quite early on when I started my own practice, that I wanted to learn how to teach Yoga. It was never even a question for me, I knew this was what I wanted. I fell in love with it, how it helped me in so many aspects of my body, mind and spirit! I wanted to share that with others, and help them to discover how Yoga can improve their way of life.
2. What surprised you the most about this program?
How wonderful it is to be a part of a Yoga community! It wasn't something I was really aware of, and I so enjoyed meeting new people, becoming friends and feeling welcomed by some really great people.
3. What have you learned about yourself?
I've learned what I really can be capable of. I was pushed mentally, emotionally and physically, all while feeling safe and supported. I've learned new ways to work through things, as well as recognizing root causes of my reactions towards different situations.
4. What’s the most impactful piece you have taken away from this program?
Each day during and after training has been a reminder that I am capable of teaching, That I have knowledge now I can impart to others. To own that and have confidence in it!
5. Any plans on how you might like to use your Yoga Alliance 200hr certification?
I've already started teaching private lessons, and group lessons in home. A great teaching opportunity has also come from a local gym that I'm really excited about. I hope to eventually open a Yoga studio, and become a community builder for my area.
