I will not be a yoga teacher. Not yet. Definitely not yet. At least not yet. And it is perfectly okay.
I have been practicing for more than 12 years now. In 2012, I completed a 200-hour teacher training. I am certified by the Yoga Alliance to teach yoga. But I won’t.
I will not teach yoga because I work full-time, and I am also registered as a full-time student, since I am doing a Master’s thesis. I also take the time once a week to write to you guys, and to prepare a Weekly Note for those who want to make sure to not miss any post. I am also the girlfriend of an amazing guy, and the mother of two wonderful cats.
Those things take time. To reenergize myself, to find balance, I turn myself to yoga. Through the end of my undergrad, through the beginning of my adult life, as I was finding my first full-time job, moving in with my boyfriend, starting my Master’s, yoga has been there for me. On my mat, I get back to my breath, I work hard, I have fun. I discover myself over and over again.
