After finishing up the first 100 hours of my Yoga teacher training, I needed a BREAK. It was a lot of information to process, and the trip itself was mentally and physically exhausting. After having a few weeks to process everything, I am starting to feel like my normal self, although I know I still have so much more to learn. With that being said, I have already signed up for the last half of my 200 hr RYT training that begins in August! I think a few months break to recuperate and practice in between training will be extremely beneficial – I plan on soaking in as much information on anatomy, teaching inversions and putting together new sequences as possible. Reading, practicing, taking workshops, etc.
One workshop I signed up for is with Kino Macgregor – she is teaching a 3-day workshop at Yoga on High in July! All about ashtanga, handstands & sun salutations. Is anyone else attending her workshop? I would love to practice with my fellow Columbus Yogis!
Between working 50+ hours a week, learning to play the guitar, taking care of my bunny, spending time with friends/family, running, and even finding time for my own yoga practice… It’s pretty much impossible to commit to teaching at a studio (although – yoga classes at a local studio in the works, so stay tuned!! ;)). I’ve been teaching a few classes at my house with some friends, and have been starting to teach private lessons as well – including teaching yoga to my mom & my 86 year old grandmother! And guess what… I LOVE it! I am learning so much, and the intimacy of working with people one-on-one is so different than teaching an entire class. Besides helping those new to yoga, or just anyone that wants to improve their current practice, I learn so much from teaching. I am so grateful to be able to meet so many people, and every encounter I walk away with a full heart, a more open mind, and a new friend. So for any local Yogis in Columbus – if you are interested in working with me, want to practice some Yoga, or maybe even learn how to handstand – check out my “Work With Me” page here 🙂
