Can you believe that at this time next week I'll be a 200-RYT? Yes, a registered yoga teacher! Like last week, this week flew by. And despite my struggles with inversions last week, I'm have more faith (I actually got up this week!), and know that with practice they will happen.
Can you believe I'm already half way through? In just two weeks, I'll be a 200 hour certified yoga teacher! Even though the afternoons seemed long, this week actually flew by. The change of perspective I had towards the end of last week about the training (see week 1 post) really helped me dive in each day and take in as much as I can this week. I love it and the more I learn, the more I want to teach.
When I signed up for the YogaWorks Intensive Teacher Training with Chrissy Carter, I knew it was going to be like a bootcamp, but I had no idea how much work was really involved. Four weeks of a 200 hour teacher training, as opposed to a five month period (which is what many do) appealed to me, because like most New Yorkers, I like checking things off of my list and moving forward. Thanks anxiety. My intentions going into the training were to put yoga first, but of course still keep up my full time freelance career (pitching, writing, pitching, writing), blog and health coaching homework (I graduate IIN in March). With those expectations set for myself, I came home three nights this week full of tears.
