Karina: End of a chapter for 200 hours YTT

As YTT draws to a close, I am filled with joy and excitement. I am curious to grow, to share and learn even more. This truly feels like the beginning of a yoga journey. 


One year ago, I would have never imagined taking on yoga teacher training. I was quite content only attending classes and being taught by yogi friends. I also had the assumption that it was the most ideal to take teacher training on an exotic island in Bali, Thailand or somewhere tropical as most of my yogi teacher friends trained abroad in a month long intensive course.


I’ve learned that the benefits of juggling a high pressure full time job and a 200 hour teacher training course has taught important life lessons in applying self-discipline and the importance of balanced wellbeing in the daily grind. Most of all the wonderful realisation is that it is possible to balance both and have a fulfilling life while being in the city. 


With each week of training, it has helped to shift my mindset to a positive approach to work life, to view problem solving the way I would approach learning an asana and applying pranayama breathing daily instead of holding in stress. 


I am also thankful to have met a wonderful batch of yogi classmates from all walks of life who have always been supportive of one another throughout the course. I look forward to attending their classes!
