When you step outside your comfort zone for your higher purpose, the universe supports you in every way. In fact, for me, it felt like all available doors shut, and the only one open to me at that time was yoga teacher training. I wasn’t even sure why I was doing it, let alone, actually seeing myself teaching a group yoga class at the end of training. But my teachers cleared the path for me, planted seeds, and believed in my capabilities, even when I didn’t myself. I’m not going to say it was easy, for it was the hardest thing I’ve done yet. I believed in the process, trusted my teacher, and walked “blind” into the process of really learning about yoga, or so I thought, for really, yoga teacher training is learning about yourself. Of healing old hurts, that you think you have forgotten, but the “scab” is still there, waiting for the yoga to remove it.
The yoga asana is like “reversing” your wiring, like going back to a younger version of yourself, but only better, because now you have a younger feeling body, but with the wisdom gained of your years.
What is holding you back from your dreams? Our mind can come up with LOTS of reasons why it’s not the right time for yoga teacher training. I can’t tell you how many doubts I had, but my inner voice that signed me up was just a little stronger. Some of my doubts about teacher training…..
- It’s a lot of money, what happens if I don’t teach?
Trust me, even if you don’t teach, you will learn a whole new way of living your life in harmony and that information alone is invaluable.
- How can I teach when I can’t do a lot of poses?
After my teacher training, I gained more strength and flexibility in the next 6 months than the previous 3 years of taking yoga. Guess what? Yoga works.
- What happens if I don’t pass the test?
My job is to make sure I clear the path for you, just as my teacher did for me. You do have to show up, and do the work, but my job is to help you succeed.
- I have all these other commitments…how can I possibly take this time for myself?
When I took teacher training it was a month during the summer, and my kids were 12, 9 and 6. Everyone stepped in, and helped me out, taking kids where they needed to go, and the world did not fall apart when I took time for me, in fact, everyone thrived because I had shifted to a better place.
Excuses are really self abuses”. What if all of those doubts disappeared? What if you thrived, instead of living in doubt? What if you decide to take the next step, and the next step, and before you know it, you are in the experience, and are truly empowering your life! You have that option, and no, it’s not too late.
When we make a firm decision within, the Universe moves everything in order to support us, and make our decision an actual reality. It really does!
I’m excited to start this journey with you.
