My Story: How I Became A Yoga Teacher
Never in my life had I ever thought of becoming a yoga teacher except when out of the blue I was presented the opportunity to teach yoga. I began practicing yoga at the YMCA when they started offering it to the members. I was interested in yoga and started taking a beginners class. I was hooked after the first class. I found it to be just the exercise I needed. I loved everything about it. I went to class twice a week and then started practicing at home. I never missed a class. The teacher was very inspiring.
After a few years, my teacher was going to move and she needed a replacement.
She asked me to do a triangle pose and a couple of other poses and said would I like to train to be a yoga instructor. I hesitated because I had never taught adults before. I had always been a teacher of children. But my instincts told me to take the chance and so I did and never looked back. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. She mentored me and I took training classes for certification.
I started teaching classes in all areas of yoga at the beginner and intermediate level from hatha yoga to flow yoga to gentle and restorative and then yin yoga. I loved doing all of it.
Now I’ve gone back to my roots and am also teaching Kids Yoga.
Yoga has made me more healthy both in mind , spirit, and body and I hope through my teaching I have helped others become healthier and have through yoga brought more meaning to their lives.
