Why You Should Do Yoga Teacher Training

Updated on May 17, 2019

Hey guys! Have you always wanted to do YTT, but came up with a bunch of lame excuses why you couldn't or shouldn't? That was me for about 7 years up until 7 weeks ago. Now I am 2 weeks away from getting my RYT 200hr teacher certification and with this post I am going to try and explain to you just how awesome it feels. I have a pretty fulfilling life, not one of those awesome lives you see on IG or FB, but a really great life that I loved and still do. But something was missing, I was always daydreaming about one "cool" job or another. I was always longing for something else, day after day, month after month and even year after year I would always tell myself to "get it together!" but just couldn't find the motivation to do so. Everyone's time will come when they are ready, its all about timing.

I had always done yoga off and on for the last 7 years, but in November of 2018 I started doing yoga daily and it was the only form of exercise I was doing. I'll give you the short version, I had 2 dogs that were my entire world for a combined 13 years, we did everything together. We were a packaged deal, if my dogs couldn't come then you need not expect me to come. Parker, my boston passed in August of 2017 and then Ruby, my pit mix passed in October of 2018. I was completely lost without them and found myself living in the past, all I could think about was our time together and how I didn't have them anymore. All the while I was ignoring the present, I still had 2 other dogs (they are my boyfriends, so still mine, but def not the same) I found myself going down a path I did not want to enter. I know that its ok to mourn loved ones, but I didn't want to just be sad and ignore the present to stay in the past, I wanted to heal myself... I turned to yoga and it changed me in so many ways, there are too many to explain in one blog post.

Fast forward to 7 weeks ago. I found myself being tired of wasting my potential at a dead end job and was done fantasizing about some awesome cool job that I was never going to have because I never applied myself at anything I did. I was just kind of going with the flow. Now going to yoga and opening my heart and soul was 100 percent a big part of this push to want to do better at life and myself. I was so open to love and change from all of the yoga that I needed more and was finally willing to work towards something. Now taking the plunge to sign up wasn't that easy though, I talked myself out of it 3 times before I signed up and ended up signing up 2 days before training started, TWO!! I do not regret signing up for one second, I also don't regret trying to talk myself out of it either. It is all about the process and what you do to get there, being difficult was my path that I chose to get there. But now I can see the finish line and let me tell you, it is so beautiful and it is the clearest thing I have ever seen in my life.I lied to myself for too long about not wanting to be a yoga teacher and why I couldn't sign up for training. I am so thankful that I finally took the plunge!!! I am 2 weeks away and I couldn't be more excited. Am I scared, you better effing believe it am I nervous, for sure... But if you aren't scared of something you want for fear of failing, do you even want it???
