#yogastory: week two of my evolation yoga teacher training

Mid-week, nervous about (well possibly more anxious) actually teaching the standing series. I know I need to trust Gary and Francisco (and myself) when they say that we know more than we think; that all of the dialogue is truly in our heads.

Not feeling any butterflies yet, instead more of an anxious feeling. Anxious to get started; to immerse myself in all that is yoga. (All that is within me). What is yoga? A feeling? A movement? Way of life? Understanding? LOVE?

I feel like yoga can be a lot of these things – it’s what it does for me, how it changes me, shapes me, radiates ...

#yogastory: patience, practice and passion

Day 14

Monday morning, week 3 of my evolation yoga teacher training!! WOW, half way through. Hard to believe. This has been quite the journey. I have learned so much about my practice and myself, my practice has changed immensely. I thought I was nailing the postures and little did I know so many of mine are out of alignment. So I have learned to make my self-practice slow ...
