As I expected, the end was bittersweet. I looked forward to the end through the entire journey and as I lay on my yoga mat during Savasana, during our last class at teacher trainees, an hour before graduation, I let my emotions truly sink in.
I was sad to see it end.
Yoga Teacher Training was the most transformational experience of my life. My life shifted from where it was to where my heart knew it could be.
I feel more alive, awake, and aware than ever before.
"We are spiritual beings having a human experience."
Yoga Yoga Austin, Hatha Flow Graduation, August 18, 2012
This experience taught me to look inside, question life and the Universe and work towards my highest and best self with trust and respect. As a result, I am closer to who I am and where I want to be in life. I realize that my life is a miracle, a precious gift from the Universe.
And I intend to live each day as such.
With the knowledge I received in Teacher Training I hope to share the beautiful gift of yoga with every being that I cross. And although, I know that not everyone has an interest in yoga -- I am hopeful that through my own nature I am able to at least spark the flame in a few people along the way just as someone did for me 4 years ago.
