I knew by the end of my first yoga class that I wanted to teach. For many years I had let myself get lost in relationships & in doing everything for everyone around me & nothing for myself. For six months I’d finally been on a better path to loving myself first & doing what I need to do to make myself live a happier & more mindful life. I still had bouts of anxiety & depression; I’ve been dealing with those two things since I was 13, but I was feeling pretty joyful most days. However, at the end of my first yoga class I felt something I hadn’t in SO long: I didn’t just feel good, I felt shantih. Peace. I knew immediately that I wanted to give that feeling to others in this profound way.
I finished my 200 hour training at the end of April & received my RYT with the Yoga Alliance shortly after, so now I’m just eager to start teaching! In May I went on a yoga retreat to Mexico; it was my first trip outside of the U.S., outside of the east coast, actually & I’ve definitely been bitten by the travel bug! So I really want to do as much traveling as I can & if I could have the opportunity to teach while doing so, I think I’d be one happy & grateful person!
