Finals: Anna

Looking back the past 4 weeks, it has been an adventure. I know it’s going to be tough but I
didn’t know it’s going to be to so intense. I almost give up at 1 point. First was Zoom lesson
and secondly teaching in class. Public speaking was never my thing. I get really nervous
when I had to speak in front of a lot of people. After my second class today, I don’t feel as
nervous as my first. I’ll always be nervous but I guess the more you do it, the more you’ll get
used to it. Teaching around your friends makes you feel a lot less stressful and I’m surprised
to say that I had fun with them today.


I’ve been practicing yoga for a long time, more than 15 years mostly with Fitness First. It’s
not great for yoga but I get most of my other workout fixes there. I did stopped yoga for
awhile though when I was trying to start a family. Real Estate doesn’t really work out for me
so why not enroll in teacher training course? I have been doing it anyways so why not learn
something new (teaching part). I’m a perfectionist, why not learn more in-depth about yoga,
learn how certain poses works, how to hold a pose and techniques to do it etc. Also, some
teachers doesn’t really care to teach the right technique and screams when there’s only 3
students in the class. I was thinking to myself, if I’m a teacher, that’s not how I’d like to
conduct my class.


Jessica has always been very cheerful and welcoming whenever we stepped into the studio.
We learnt a lot from her the past few weeks. She’s been very encouraging even though my
teaching part has gone south. What she said stuck in my head, “I’m not looking for
perfection but improvements” I’m totally the opposite, everything must be perfect,
everything must be in orderly manner. My OCD trait is there but not extreme. I give myself
lot pressure in life all the time. I’m constantly stressing and worrying about stuff. Everything
is fast paced, never really relaxed. What do u expect from someone who’s trained by SQ and
working on private jets? Perfection!


What I learnt from this YTT is that we don’t over think things, be happy and go with the
flow. I’m still trying to make changes, definitely not easy for me but will definitely try
harder. My husband will be shocked to hear this!


And to Alexis, even though you didn’t interact much with us, I know you care. Whenever we
have any doubt you will take time and answer our queries. We’re thankful for that. I’m
gonna miss all the routines and all the trainings we’ve gone through together every morning
in the studio (and eating outside by the park!) when the training ends but I’m sure we will
all stay in touch. Thanks for everything!!!
