Before Yoga Teacher Training Q & A

Next week kicks-off my 6 month yoga teacher training.  The teacher’s asked us to answer a few questions before our first meeting.

What made you decide to take teacher training?

Teacher training is a deep dive in to developing my personal practice while laying the foundation to teach when I’m ready.

I’m committed healing the wounds left by my traumatic early childhood and living a life of contentment and joy. Therapy has been a wonderful partner in this work. I read “The Body Keeps The Score” by Bessel van der Kolk and discovered yoga as an avenue for deeper healing.

What are your areas of interest related to training?

I’m excited to explore and discover where this experience leads me. My goal is to come out with a solid foundation for my personal practice and perhaps the confidence to teach. I would like to gain a better understanding of the spiritual, emotional, psychological experience of yoga.

What would you like to do with your knowledge from training?

I’m interested in teaching yoga as a tool for self-compassion for survivors of childhood trauma, sexual trauma, and PTSD.
