What’s next for me? Well, aside from taking a huge leap of faith to move to the north, starting a new job, and teaching yoga, I’ve decided to start my 500 hour advanced yoga teacher training! I started my 500 hour advanced with Breathing Space Yoga Studio in October with my first training weekend taking place in Halifax, NS. My first workshop was focused on yin yoga. I’m excited to broaden my yoga knowledge, where my first 400 hours of training focused on vinyasa yoga and yoga for schools. Starting my program this fall gave me a good excuse to head back to the east coast. I was away from the east coast a month and was already itching to return.
Although I’ve started my advanced training, I’m in no rush to complete it anytime soon. I’m happy to continue my yoga journey as a teacher and student–the learning never ends (and it shouldn’t). The yoga teachers I enjoyed practicing with the most in Moncton, NB were life long learners and active participants in attending upgrading workshops. The difference is noticeable. To give myself time to take in all that I’m learning, I’ll take my time to complete my program while continuing to gain experience as a yoga teacher.
I’m excited at the possibilities to come. I’m taking advantage of every opportunity that I can get my hands on in this beautiful life I have created. I’m seeking out ways to live my life to the fullest–this is not a passive action, but rather I’m an active participant in walking through the doors that open for me. Some would say I have a type “A” personality, I’m an ‘overachiever’, and others call me crazy! In any case, I wouldn’t want to live any other way. I’m blindly saying “yes”, walking through the open doors, and continuing down unknown paths ready for adventure!
When you come to a fork in the road, which path will you take, the groomed trail or the road less traveled?
