YTT flew past just like that; what an incredible experience. I am definitely not the first to say that I’ve enjoyed myself so very much, the learning, the sweat, the growth, and most importantly, the company. The early weekends and long hours were painful, or were they really on hindsight? I wonder if we will wake up feeling empty on weekends after graduation. I’ve grown to really appreciate this course, not only for the knowledge I’ve gained, but the growth; from a clueless yoga practitioner, to giving the instructions confidently for sun salutations effortlessly, conducting our very own classes, creating our own styles, building our own special rapport with our students, and becoming the unique yoga teacher that we each are. Some bonds were also built out of the class, away from the sweat; many were built upon conversations ranging from the work, food, love and life, while some were built upon sharing the same performance anxiety, same eye for perfection, same nua-ness, same love for the singing bowl and lululemon yoga mat, same taste in red angpow coloured sports bras, and some, same pain of a miscarriage. It truly has been a unique experience, shared with a special bunch and while I’m at it, I aim to savour these moments while they last, holding these memories, and friends, close to my heart.
