On November 24, 2019, I had the great good pleasure to participate in the graduation of these lovely yoginis! We spent a year together at Yoga Center of Columbia practicing asana, pranayama, and meditation, learning about yoga philosophy and the subtle body, and figuring out how to best convey this ancient-yet-modern wisdom to others. These yoginis spent time in class studying, outside reading and practicing, apprenticing with all kinds of people, including those with autism, in the 12-step program, and living with Parkinson’s disease. The yoga teacher training program is nothing if not fulfilling.
A yoga teacher is a yoga student who is just a little further along the path. An inspiring thought: the yoga path can last a lifetime because there is always more to learn. When one is born on this earth, they “got the lucky” as my teacher Douglas Brooks would say. And yoga practice helps any human to recognize that luck and also live even better. They say that if you want to learn something well, then teach it. Well, here’s YOUR chance.
Next year, Lucy Lomax and I will be co-teaching this life-enriching program. Dive deep with us.
