Wow, I have been a Yoga teacher for over ten years. I study yoga every day. I study philosophy, alignment, and sequencing. I have been a certified yoga instructor for over 7 years and teach 6-8 classes a week.

Last month I attended my training to complete my 200hr certification, going in to this a little nervous, “What if I’ve been doing it wrong?.  “ What if I’m not a good instructor?” Even with all these questions in my head, I was very excited to have this opportunity.  The instructor walked in…a very petite lovely lady with the softest yoga voice I have ever heard. Her name is Nancy Wile with the Yoga Education Institute in Weston, Florida and I would like to thank her for this most magnificent experience.

6 of us spent 7 days together, working, laughing, learning and sometimes crying. I learned about Yoga, I learned about people, I learned about myself. I learned that as long as I care, believe and gain knowledge that I will never do it “wrong”. I learned how to help my students get the most out of their individual practice. I learned that to be a good Yoga teacher means to listen to your students and your heart, and that expressing your individual yoga voice is what being a good teacher means.

I came away from teacher training with more new knowledge than I could have hoped for, not just about proper alignment or sequencing a practice I came away with something I will carry with me forever a glimpse of my soul.

That’s what learned in teacher training.
