Bliss, serenity, fulfillment and love are the first words that come to mind when I think of my 200-hour Kripalu yoga graduation ceremony. I am overwhelmed by emotion and ecstasy.
I contemplated being a yoga instructor for six years but never thought I was capable enough, thin enough, skilled enough etc. My fears of inadequacy and the unknown held me back from pursuing my passion.
After exploring dozens of graduate school programs with little gravitation toward any of them, my mind painted an image of what my own yoga class would look like. I vividly imagined the methodically threaded posture sequence, the fun music, and the deliberate language I used to guide my students. My mind played this scene on repeat for months. That’s when one day I decided to pursue my passion.
After four weeks of a life changing immersion program containing crying, laughing, connecting with others and learning more about myself, I am finally a certified yoga instructor. I have absolutely no regrets and can’t wait to see what the future has in store for me.
