I’ve been practicing yoga on my own for a few years now. Recently, though, my yoga practice hasn’t been serious. Still, I somehow incorporate some yoga pose into my workout at the gym when the aerobics room. I practice handstands, backbends and use some yoga poses to stretch out my muscles after a long and gruelling weight training workout. Some mornings – when I remember, meditate and chant mantras to try and jumpstart my day positively. Since finding the love of yoga a few years back, it was always in the back of my mind thatI would want to take my practice seriously and step it up a level; perhaps teach some day. I wanted to gain the knowledge of the movements, the poses and the connections created with one’s self when practicing yoga. I wanted to learn how to teach it correctly and take my practice to the next level. So when I learned about Wanderlust and that with a short 13-hour drive I had the opportunity to practice with a community of yogis and Internationally renowned instructors who taught different concentrations of yoga, I had to go.
I’m quite glad I did.
Upon returning from Wanderlust, my mind was made up. This was the year that I was going to teach. I want to earn my certification, strengthen my own practice and be earn the privilege to teach others the benefits and peace with their own yoga practice.
Starting September, I embark on this journey. I will start my 200 RYT to become a certified yoga instructor. There will definitely be more yoga/fitness and inspirational posts on here, but I’ll try to keep it informative and fun.
I’ve also partnered with Manduka for all my yoga gear needs. Click below for awesome yoga gear!
