How Teacher Training Changes Lives!
I finally decided to go for it. After going back and forth about it for a long time, I finally decided to sign up for teacher training at Hot 8 Yoga. I had no idea what to expect, I had no idea if I even wanted to teach, but I knew that it was time and that I was ready.
The first thing I noticed from being in training was how much deeper I got into my practice. I was able to understand things about the way my body moved. Every posture we broke down had a purpose, and had multiple benefits. I was able to then practice in a smarter and safer way. And I was always so excited to take class because I couldn’t wait to physically apply what I learned!
Beyond everything I learned while in training, which was so much, I made such deep connections with my fellow trainees and my training leads. We met outside of training to practice teaching, we took class together, and we supported one another. I think that had to be the most special part about training at Hot 8. Not everyone in the training had the intention of teaching. However, a group of people with all different yoga backgrounds were still able to come together to experience this journey we were all on as one solid unit.
Training at Hot 8 Yoga has giving me the kind of confidence I never knew I had. It helped me find my voice. But most of all, because of teacher training, I know this is what I want to do. When my training came to a close, I wanted more. I wanted to keep learning, keep growing. In just a few short days, I will be venturing into my second teacher training and I couldn’t be more excited. I know I’ve just scratched the surface with what I know now. And I also know that the practice of yoga will be a lifelong journey for me. I will always be grateful that yoga found me.
