Certified Yoga Teacher + What Does the Future Hold?
Sooo I woke up this morning to an email with my certificate that I passed my Aligned Yoga teacher training! Honestly, I was worried because it had been 2 weeks since I submitted my final practicum and I was scared I didn't pass. I have battled myself and my mind all my life. It is a process to try to transform the way I think and see myself. I feel like I am not good enough or didn't do it right or that I need to know everything first before feeling confident. This causes a lot of my self consciousness and doubt. You would think training would help with all the mindset and growth we learned but I struggle with that part the most. It will be a continued journey for me.
In the meantime, I am super happy. I am not thinking of teaching or anything. I really want to keep studying. I want to learn more about anatomy and the reasons for my pain. If I can figure out what causes these pains and how to modify and move through them painless, I would be happy and would be glad to help others with what I have learned. Until then, I am going to go over all my studies when I have time and keep learning.
The funny thing is, because of the training, I started trying new workouts and found barre. I started on Thanksgiving and have not stopped practicing since. It is hard and fiery but it is probably the best workout I have ever done and I think I like it more than yoga. I have never felt stronger and I can see results like no other workout I was doing. I have been practicing yoga almost everyday for almost a year and have built some strength and seen changes in my body. But with barre, I can see it so fast in the 2 months I have been doing it. I feel this constant burn in my muscles that feel like jello through the whole day. Best feeling in the world. Tempted to take the training for this even if I don't plan to teach it I really really would love to learn more and the whys behind it. I am not sure what I will do but all I can say is if you haven't tried barre yet, you should.
And as much as I love the on demand classes, nothing beats a live one and up a level from the recorded ones. I look forward every week to my Satuday livestream classes with Adrienne. An hour of intense burn but it is the most exciting thing to my week.
