I remember calling a number recommended by a friend. A lovely voice answers and after a brief chat this lady ends the conversation with ‘if it is meant to be, it will be.’
‘I’ve got to make this happen’ I thought to myself. Little did I know what I had gotten myself into, and little did I know how absolutely life changing this course was going to be for me.
The things that shifted and aligned so that I could attend was amazing.
I didn’t tell many people, and off I went, on and off for months spending long weekends, doing retreats, loads of travelling in Byron Bay and Caboolture. I didn’t want to become a yoga teacher, I told everyone that, even the teachers and the other pupils. I didn’t really know why I was there at the time, but I was about to find out.
I turn up to the first day of training, these yogis were in touch with their emotions, they cried, they touched arms when they talked and hugged each other. What have I done, I thought to myself. Let’s just say loads changed for me during this training. What I know is that before it, I could barely hug people, I didn’t know how to deal with my emotions very well, I was pretty sarcastic and blunt with people, and I sure as hell rarely cried.
Taking an inward journey and realizing the good and bad qualities, was quite a daunting experience, and very challenging physically and emotionally with some days including hours of yoga. There were moments I wanted to quit, especially when I didn’t pass my first practical exam. But the knowledge, confidence and strength I obtained, the amazing people I met and the laughs we all had, I am so glad I persevered. I’m not sure where or what I would be doing right now if I hadn’t had done it, but I definitely know, I wouldn’t want to be doing anything else.
I still get lost all the time, but I’ve learnt to love myself a little bit more, I found a part of myself, I learnt when my ego is speaking to me instead of my heart, I learnt I know the answers if I quieten my mind enough, I learnt so many incredible life practices.
Do yourself a favor, dive in to the training course, it will change your life.
