You’re thinking about taking a yoga teacher training and you’re expecting to learn philosophy, the details of the poses and their alignment, sequencing, assisting, and maybe even a sprinkle of the history.
These days, it seems more and more people are choosing to immerse themselves into a teacher training. One of the reasons why so many are doing it is because a yoga teacher training can impact us in ways we never imagined when we signed up.
1. You will make a beautiful and loving connection with your body.
By devoting more time to asana it will help you realize how strong and magnificent your body is. Our body hears everything our mind says to it. In teacher training you practice positive vibes and kind words to your body. It’s your home, your best friend.
2. You will create new friendships and leave with a new yoga tribe.
Teacher trainings are incredible bonding experiences. They are safe places where people realize we are all going through similar challenges in life.
3. You will deepen your level of gratitude.
With all the time you spend in asana and meditation, it will allow you the time to realize how lucky you are. And to see all the miracles happening around you.
4. You will take with you a home meditation practice.
By being asked to meditate each day and seeing the difference it can make, you will want to continue to do it. At teacher trainings you will discover different ways that it can be done and you’ll find a method that resonates with you.
5. You will eat cleaner.
During teacher training you will be practicing positive reinforcement for your heart, mind, and body. Unhealthy foods may no longer look appetizing or you will want to nourish your body with life giving foods.
6. Yoga teacher training opens new doors.
You will leave feeling confident, energized, and a zest for life. With the law of attraction in effect, you will be drawn towards amazing new opportunities.
7. You will give up old habits.
The daily yoga and meditation will generate awareness in your life where you may be stuck in habits that don’t serve you. It will give you the opportunity and strength to let these go and to instead fill your life with new healthy habits.
8. You will gain confidence in yourself.
By doing something out of your comfort zone i.e. yoga teacher training it will empower you to have faith and belief in yourself. You leave feeling empowered from all the effort you put towards being a better version of you.
9. It will enhance your love of yoga.
By surrounding yourself with other people who love yoga, the love becomes infectious. Hearing other people’s story about why they do yoga and reminding yourself why you do it will magnify your appreciation for the practice.
10. It will change your life.
By stepping away from your day-to-day life, immersing into yoga will allow you to gain a new perspective on life. It gives you time to focus on what is really important to you and the life you want to live. And as a bonus, it gives you the opportunity to share this life changing practice with others.
