A brief background before my amazing journey in yoga ~
After earning my bachelor’s degree in Psychology and failing my board exam, I started feeling
lost and confused. The sense of being without direction was new for me. For years in college, I would load up my semesters with the maximum allowable units and I would even attend summer classes to graduate early. I was always busy and on the go; whether it was school, friends, or responsibilities at home.. My plan was to work right after college – to get out of my hometown and experience the corporate scene. Staying at home (all day, everyday) wasn’t really an appealing activity for me.
Last November 2016, I decided to practice yoga regularly from Monday to Friday. There was a promo for unlimited classes in YogaPhilippines (a local yoga studio near my home). The results were unquestionable, not just physically, but mentally and even spiritually.
Yoga opened my mind, heart, and soul like never before. It gave life a new meaning.
It taught me a love for myself and consequentially a love for others.
I fell in love with yoga and everything it stands for. Forming a habit of practicing yoga regularly and surrounding myself with people who have the same frequency as mine, I can’t help but feel different about myself – like a new version of myself. So when I was informed that YogaPhilippines was offering a teacher training course in Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, I was convinced this was for me.
Holidays had passed and there’s still this constant battle between what I am and what I want. How was I to be a yoga teacher? I didn’t like speaking in front of people and I’ve always had a hard time expressing myself… These are the thoughts that constantly ran in my mind.
It was a new year and the last day of enrolment in Teacher Training Course. I was still hesitant on what I should do. .
Scared and anxious, I took a leap of faith and enrolled. All I can say is, it was the best decision of my life. To read more on my yoga journey, check my blog, How a Teacher Training Course on Ashtanga Yoga changed my life. I hope you like it!
