Pause, rewind, playback to YTT day 1… I remember sharing with the fellow YTT friends that I aim
to eventually teach yoga one day, improve my posture and also get into handstand or any sort of
inversions that I thought I would never be able to do it. But throughout the few weeks, I find
myself achieving more than just being able to do a certain poses (well this is a bonus of course)
But I found myself understanding that Yoga is not just a physical thing, it is a union of body, mind
and soul. It coincides closely with the 8 limbs of Yoga. One of the Niyamas, particularly Santosha,
reminded me to be contented with wherever I am at now. It is never a race with anyone. It should
not be about chasing Asanas, but to really be enjoying every progress.
It might be just a 200 hours course, but I learned so much from it!!!! I gained so much knowledge,
learnt a new language (of course it got to be Sanskrit), made awesome friends and enjoyed every
painful physical process! I am proud to say that I did my YTT at The Yoga Mandala, this journey
has just begun 😀 I am so glad to say that I have experienced such a great learning process here!!!
