Does this describe YOU?

If you practice yoga almost every day…if your car’s full of yoga mats, water bottles and gym bags…if you plan your social life around your yoga classes…I think it’s a safe bet that yoga’s really important to you.

In fact, you may be wondering how you can incorporate more yoga into your life, but aren’t sure how to do it.

Don’t worry, we’ve all felt this way!

Even though I had a successful career in finance, I often wished I didn’t work such long hours so I could attend more yoga classes. Eventually, I realized that my personal priorities were changing. Yoga provided me with the personal fulfillment and growth I’d been seeking, and there was no point in denying it any more!

This is when I made the decision to become a certified yoga teacher.

I still remember my first teacher training class. Even though I’d been practicing yoga for three years, I could tell that some of the other students had been practicing for a lot longer. But the biggest surprise of all was that training to become a yoga teacher actually helped me become a much better student!

After just four weeks immersed in yoga study and lifestyle, I felt stronger and healthier than ever—better than when I was a professional athlete! I was 100% prepared to teach, and that’s exactly what I’ve been doing ever since!

I wanted to get deeper into my practice; I never expected the
life-changing experience that I ended up getting.

The best thing that I have EVER done was to take this step and
open myself up to a new realm of possibilities and self-expansion.

Of course I appreciate the Academy for enabling me to do what I love (teach yoga). But what I took away from my time in training was much more personal than just a certificate. I kept myself in a bubble for years, afraid to try new things because I was petrified of failure and didn't trust myself to succeed. Teacher Training was a big leap of faith for me--one of the biggest I had ever taken--and when I came out on the other side with a dream accomplished, it gave me a self assurance I had never had.
