In fact, I found myself returning to my mat over and over again. More than I ever had before. I realized that as my father was losing control of his body, I wanted to take control of my own. I knew deep down that the only way to accelerate my practice, and ultimately the connection I had with body, was to jump into teacher training.
Upon entering a 200 hour program, I had no desire to teach. To my surprise, the more I stood in front of the room, the more comfortable I became. I began to love teaching others how to drop in and connect with their own bodies. The gratitude from seeing my students' contentment after class was my new passion.
I was beyond elated to take my first gig at Blossom to teach a new community class, open to the public. Every Tuesday night is a new experience for me. Every class I teach I feel strong, confident, and all of the negative thoughts in my head disappear for that hour. There are some things in life that are out of our control. In my case, for everything else, there is yoga.
