Why everyone should take yoga teacher training

After attending 16 yoga classes, doing 3 class observations, spending 172 hours with my yogi cohort (or kula, as it’s referred to in yoga) on weekends over 10 weeks, spending 35-ish hours reading textbooks, working on research assignments and writing blog posts, and after having many eye-opening, ah-ha and emotional self-discovery moments, I’ve completed the in-class portion of yoga teacher training at MokSana Yoga Center. And it was worth every second.

I still have one more observation to do as well as my practicum, which involves shadowing the teacher, assisting by handing out props and then teaching the warm up over three consecutive Foundations classes before I take my final certification class. I’ve scheduled my certification class for February 18, so I have lots of time to practice my cues. (more…)

Run. Lift. Yoga teacher training!

Remember how I was going to go to grad school this fall, but then got engaged, realized I canโ€™t afford both an MBA program and a wedding next year, and then also realized I was feeling burnt out and decided to take a year of rest?

And then more horrible things happened in the United States (and everywhere, really), and I made a commitment to use my various platforms to speak up and be the light?

Well, somehow the events over the past year have finally lead me to do what Iโ€™ve been thinking about doing for a while now โ€“ and closes the loop, so to speak, on the Run Lift Yoga brand I dreamed up four years ago when I started taking blogging, writing and fitness a bit more seriously.

Iโ€™m doing yoga teacher training this fall! (more…)
