“This teacher training goes way beyond poses and breathing. Rina puts you face to face with yourself–but what and how much you see is up to you. How close are you willing to look inside? Learning to observe yourself and making mindful choices based on what you see are the first steps in deepening your practice. By doing so, you will be able to observe your students and respond to their needs to make your class a wonderful experience. Whether or not you’re planning on teaching yoga, this awareness goes way beyond the mat. Again, only to the degree that you’re willing to take it.
You may find yourself looking at the relationships, habits and activities in your life with new eyes. All of sudden you will notice discomfort in the routines that make up your comfort zone. The beautiful thing is at the same time you’re opening up a fresh and exciting set of possibilities for yourself. Absolutely it is scary. You might be hesitating just reading this. Don’t! In the words of my fellow trainee, “Decide that you want it more than you are afraid of it.” Use this opportunity to go all in. You have the invaluable support of your family of trainees.
When you feel yourself pulling away, resisting the changes, remember that obstacles are the surest sign of growth. I once read, “Anxiety is a glimpse of your own daring.” Be bold! Share what is on the tip of your tongue. Ask the question you’re not asking. There was some longing in your heart for this experience. Honor that longing and commit to exploring with a real sense of curiosity about yourself and your practice. You’ll be so glad you did. Namaste’.”
