I have been practicing yoga on and off for 8 years. I still remember very clearly that my first yoga class was a substitute class when my bodycombat class got cancelled. I decided to try on yoga since I’m already in my workout attire and ever since, I like this ‘exercise’ but I’m not committed to it and NEVER like those challenging asanas such as Ashtanga Yoga.
I’ve been in my yoga ‘comfort zone’ in the past few years as I only attended hatha yoga or yin yoga and most importantly I don’t like being sweaty. Moreover, I’ve bad experiences on inversion asanas which results in me having a great fear of headstand up to today. I’ve tried to avoid or skip those inversion asanas in the past.
As I am on my career break now and to ensure my time is not ‘wasted’, I’ve sign up this YTT to deepen my yoga knowledge. However, part of me still hoping that this course will be toward hatha training. But things do not turn up as it is…
Day by day, I’m amazed by topics taught in the course and eager to learn more. Through this course, I understand that yoga is not about asana, it includes other segments such as philosophy, pranayama, anatomy, meditation, and others knowledge that beyond any words we can describe in this world. Through the daily practice, I feel my physical and mental are growing and I started to face my fear towards the challenging asana and willing to try them and the same goes to my mental reflection. I’m so grateful to have this wonderful time in my life and I couldn’t imagine what my life will be if I’ve missed this course. And hopefully one day I will be able to share whatever I learn by teaching yoga.
