With love from Ida

Tomorrow is our last day of YTT… I can not believe how fast these last 5 weeks have gone past and I feel so sad that it is all over…

Graduating tomorrow is filled with mixed emotions. Relief that I made it (theory test results pending), proud of myself for working so hard and for everything that I’ve accomplished, but at the same time I’m just so sad that it’s all coming to an end.

I keep thinking about what I’m going to do with all the time I’ll have come Monday. I hope I’ll continue to practice meditation as I feel it’s so beneficial to me, and I know I’ll keep practicing my asanas. Mostly it’s the social part I’ll miss. I’ve made some fantastic friends in this short time and I’ve felt so good getting up and going away somewhere every morning, to do something for just me and my own pleasure. And it’s truly been a pleasure! I’ve learned so much, about many different aspects of yoga and what it means to be a yoga teacher, but mostly I’ve learned about myself.

I want to take this opportunity to thank my wonderful and very skilled teachers Jessica, Alexis, Sarah and Nicole; you are all lovely people who have created such a sacred space in The yoga Mandala. Not only are you extremely professional and knowledgeable, but also warm, caring and welcoming.

And to my classmates Annette, Din and Yuming; I would not have enjoyed this as much without you guys. Thank you for all the laughs, for your support and your encouragement. You are amazing friends and I know you will all make fantastic teachers! I will truly miss you!
