a brief background before my amazing yoga journey ~
After earning my bachelor’s degree in psychology and failing my board exam. . . I started feeling
lost and confused. I didnt know what my next step was and that 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 even earlier! my plan was to work right after college – to get out of my hometown and experience the corporate scene as a completely different setting to what I used to. I was used to be always busy with something; whether it was school, friends, or responsibilities at home.. and staying at home (all day, everyday) wasnt really exciting for me.
Last November 2016, I decided to practice yoga regularly as there was a promo for unlimited classes in YogaPhilippines (a local yoga studio). I was motivated to make the most out of my money. and from there, you can say that I got addicted with the results. 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 and it taught me a love for myself and then consequentially a love for others.
I fell in love with yoga and everything it stands for. while practicing yoga regularly and surrounding myself with people who has the same belief, I cant help but feel different about myself – like a new version of myself. so when I was told 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 didnt like speaking in front of people and I’ve always had a hard time expressing myself. but should I limit myself?? hmm. . . I don’t think so.
It was a new year and the last day of enrolment. I was still hesitant on what I should do. .
Scared and anxious, I took a leap of faith and enrolled. 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!
