Yoga Teacher Training

What is yoga?

Before my first yoga teacher training, I first started doing yoga as a workout. I enjoy stretching and movement-based workouts, so yoga was a great way to enjoy burning the calories. 

Around the world – Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Regina, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Toronto, Hamilton, Halifax or MontrealSt John’s or even aboard Adelaide, Perth, Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney, Bali, Thailand, New Zealand, London, Tokyo, Rio de Janeiro  and Tel Avivas you deepened my practice, you start to notice this rush of relaxation that always happens after my class. 

Mind

Yoga, defined by my own knowledge, is the practice of uniting the mind, soul, and body to achieve an expansion of awareness within ourselves. 

It is the practice of being present in life, never living in the past or future, to stop the mind from wandering aimlessly through thoughts, and instead practice silence, allowing new information to enter. 

Child

Yoga helps us return to the child within us, never worried about anything other than the now, and creates this curiosity for the simple things in life. Such as nature, laughter, and sometimes even the texture and colours of flowers and blankets. 

This practice is also a natural way to unwind, to release the tension and stress built up in the crazy lives we live in today’s day. Through the movements, I find you are able to let go of anything that happened in your day or week. 

Favorite

My favorite thing to say to myself at the beginning of my yoga routine is “breathe it in, and let it go”. With every movement that follows, I find it becomes easier and easier to release these negative/worrisome/aggravated thoughts

I just lose yourself in the tranquility of your mind, sensing every inch of your body until you find this inner peace that you rarely see in the day to day. 

As we learn in yoga teacher training, yoga is there to help you learn this feeling more and more so that you can truly live a purely happy life. 

Yoga is also an incredible workout, and requires lots of effort from your body. Practicing yoga creates strength, mentally and physically. 

Improve

The more you practice, the more both of these improve, and personally I believe yogis are some of the healthiest people I ever meet, because they have taken the time to work on themselves and become a better version of themselves. 

Yoga helps guide you to a better version of yourself. It is a tool for us as people to use to achieve this higher spirituality and consciousness

All in all, yoga is a ritual practice that allows you to connect your mind, soul, and body to gain an insight of yourself and therefore expand your awareness of perhaps who you are and what your purpose in life is. 

Benefits

Regardless of where you live, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Regina, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Toronto, Hamilton, Halifax or MontrealSt John’s or even aboard Adelaide, Perth, Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney, Bali, Thailand, New Zealand, London, Tokyo, Rio de Janeiro  and Tel Aviv, yoga is a beneficial workout that allows your mental noise to quiet, and allow the world to slow down for a couple minutes/hours. 

Yoga is breathing deeply, exhaling anything negative, and inhaling positivity. All of these statements go hand in hand for me, they are all intertwined with one another, all just as important as the next. Yoga is a very unique activity, and it is hard to find something that IS all of this.
