Before starting training, I felt really burnt out about yoga. I had recently injured my hand and couldn’t practice for some time. I just felt unsatisfied with yoga and myself. I also found yoga to be unfulfilling in that moment. I was questioning myself about choosing the right path for myself and if yoga fit into that path. I was burnt out and uninspired. Waiting for the strike of inspiration can be difficult. I finally found it when I met so many amazing girls and women doing the teacher training program. Their stories, dispositions and goals really inspired me as a person and as a yoga teacher in training. I found myself and my path again through the help of others. I would like to know if you’ve ever been burnt out in your profession before, if so how did you regain that fire and inspiration again?
Today was my first day of teacher training and I have to say that some parts of it were tough but overall it was such a great class. I have the loveliest and awesome teachers who really care about you and what your going to learn. Today I learned about breathing and how important breath is to a yoga practice. I also leaned about freedom of movement or as my teacher calls it permission to move. My homework for this week is to write down my intentions either for this time of training which is 2 months or for the entire year. My intentions and goals are to be able to do an unassisted handstand and forearm stand, to deepen my practice and the find inner peach and love within myself. What are your intentions? I’d love to hear them.
I haven’t danced in two years. And relearning how to dance choreography and picking up movement at a quick pace is hard to me all over again. Hip hop today was challenging at some points but fun at others. I know that with practice comes progress and improvement so I must practice practice practice and keep thinking positive!
