We are now coming to our final week of our yoga 200hr ashtanga/ hatha TTC, the assessment week. It has been a very interesting journey I’ve brought myself into, a journey I probably wouldn’t even thought about a year ago. As of now, I am really excited to continue this journey with Tirisula for the 300hr TTC that covers Yoga Therapy, Kundalini Yoga, Pre-natal Yoga and Yoga Sutra + Ashtanga secondary series. I have to say that there are so many new asanas I couldn’t do before entering Tirisula and now I am already exploring variations from the techniques we were taught, all of which I felt much stronger than who I was before. We were made prepared day after day and had been introduced to new asanas where it deemed fit. Here we are, asana – the comfortable position all of which should consider ahimsa, a non-violent practice through bhakti yoga towads jnana.

The teachers in Tirisula are very knowledgeable and I really look upon them as inspirations. My classmates came from all walks of life and different countries, and this adds more culture and richness to the knowledge we’ve been presented. I am going to say this and will say it, it’s worth every penny! The trainings are quite intense as they are designed that way in order to shake you up and wake you up. The days I spent doing purely just 2hrs straight Ashtanga Yoga primary series for 2 weeks were phenomenal. At the conclusion of week one, after we spent 3 hours daily practicing pranayama, asana and learning new sequences, I thought to myself, ”How am I going to do this for the next 5 weeks?” It all seemed so daunting and my mind flooded with so many doubts.  I kept pushing because, deep in my heart, I knew it was where I needed to be in order to evolve personally and professionally. Somehow, whether by willpower or fierce determination, I made it through the rest of the training relatively unscathed and those feelings of doubt slowly slipped away.

I feel so refreshed now, especially for the fact that I challenged myself on a course like this after having delivered my second baby about 3 months ago. This is probably one of my proudest phases in life. Looking forward for great times ahead!
