I’m going to be a yoga instructor
After a lot of thought and consideration I have decided to try and become a certified yoga instructor. I’ve taken yoga classes on and off for the past seven years, often taking breaks when I prefer running as my activity of choice. In fact, the past three weeks I’ve been running more aggressively, and I actually lost seven pounds (ALCOHOL!), but I want to incorporate a more holistic and well-rounded physical routine into my daily life and feel that yoga will do the trick.
My preference has always been Hatha yoga, because it focuses primarily on breathing and meditation techniques, and for someone like me who has a lot of anxiety, it proves to be rather useful. I also enjoy Hot Ashtanga yoga in a controlled room of about 41 degrees Celsius.
Lisa is currently taking yoga teacher training and it has had a positive impact on her mind and body. She has sent me some links to aid in my research and I believe that I have selected the right school for me. However, before I apply, I’m going to spend the next six months taking classes more earnestly before I commit to such an extensive program. At $3,000 it’s not cheap either, so it can’t be an impulse decision.
I’m well aware that it won’t be easy and I have a lot to learn about yoga in general, but I want to commit myself to something that takes me away from the confines of a desk job, and considering that I enjoy yoga so much, why not let it guide me into a brighter future?
