It was the spring of 2015 and I had been practicing yoga for just over 3 years. Every time that I practiced, I seemed to fall more and more in love with the way that yoga made me feel. As time went on, I couldn’t seem to shake the idea and desire to do a yoga teacher training program. This was my opportunity to immerse myself in this beautiful practice and to share my love of yoga with the world.
I started my research and there were so many amazing options popping up on the computer screen. Did I want to go away or did I want to stay local and train near my hometown of Toronto? As I weighed the pros and cons of both options, I kept searching. Indonesia, Thailand, Costa Rica, Greece, Mexico – it all sounded like a dream! One afternoon, I was looking at a yoga school in Thailand and I noticed that in the studio, there was a giant picture of an Indian Guru. At this moment, it hit me. India! I had to go to India – the birthplace of yoga. This is a place with so much magic and energy in the air; a place to learn about yoga not just as an exercise but as a way of living. Suddenly, it was all so clear.
This is where my yoga adventure would unfold.
The beautiful thing about India is that it is such a large country that there are so many choices for where to study: jungle, beach, city, mountains. My natural love for sun, sand and water would typically draw me to the fun, laid-back, hippie beach setting of Goa but for some reason, I knew that the spirituality of the mountains was calling. And so, to the mountains I headed. This is where my yoga adventure would unfold.
I’ve added my favorite photos from my journey in the Gallery above. If you want to read more about my India adventure, see All About Yoga Teacher Training in India.
