Dear Friends in Yoga,
I know the cold months of the winter lockdown have presented each of us various challenges. I do hope that as the spring bulbs shoot up, the days lengthen and the Covid numbers come down there is a sense of spring positivity breaking or at least on the horizon.
During the hibernation period my partner Tom and I decided to move to Cornwall where my family is at the end of March. Lockdown has been a time of reflection and reassessment for all of us. For me, like many of you, my family are incredibly important. So with my parents getting older I have been feeling a deep desire to be just around the corner to spend time in a bubble with them. From Edinburgh I could fly to India faster than I could drive to Cornwall and I have found the distance a real struggle during lockdown.
My community at Meadowlark means the world to me and because of our virtual yoga shala, I will not be leaving you really. Here are the details of my continued offerings and commitments...
1. You will realise you are a complete beginner at yoga
I don’t know a single person who didn’t eat a huge slice of humble pie when they started their YTT. No matter your practice level, once you start training to be a teacher, you will be reminded that you are at the very beginning of a lifelong commitment. Even upon completing your YTT and being recognised as a qualified yoga teacher, the real learning doesn’t start until you begin teaching, and it is important to stay really sharp in terms of continuously progressing your skills and developing as a teacher and a practitioner.
2. You may spend months, years, or decades building up the yoga career you want
Of course, not everyone does a YTT with the ambition of teaching...
We are thrilled to extend our training options as of summer, 2019, opening with our 9-day immersion into next-level yoga training and practice. Whether you're new to our Avid Yogi training programme or already part of our extended yoga family, there is a place for you in our continuing yoga training path.
If you are a previously qualified yoga teacher with a 200 Hour qualification with YAUSA, you are eligible to apply for our 300 Hour training (takes place over 3 summers). Together with your original 200 Hr certificate, a further 300 Hours would put you up to the highest level of training credentials the YA offers: a 500 Hour Certificate.
At the end of the day, it isn't really the paper that motivates us, but the continuous study and connection with higher levels of teaching and practice. Together as a community, we'd love to keep checking in with all of you and work together on developing our offering to levels that distinguish us from the growing number of 200 Hour...
