Yoga can impact people’s’ lives in a powerful way: awakening meaningful connections with our bodies, uplifting spirits, increasing flexibility, strength and health, releasing stress, offering insights and a new outlook on life… As a result, it’s only natural that some yogis feel inspired to teach this goodness. So where does one begin?
At 6 AM. the morning fog was lifting off the lake. Devotional music poured joyously over the loudspeaker of a neighboring temple and echoed eerily, as fly-by birds bore life to the serene setting. Sitting in silence I felt the sun spreading it’s rays across my body with an exquisite orange and gold. I inhaled….OM.
Finally, rooted to a month of purpose!
I’ve been in Dharamsala for the past week, hiking, learning to cook Tibetan food, meeting people, exploring the Dalai Lama’s temple and my surroundings; but today, I got to drop my bags!
I have my own “apartment”. I like to call it that.
For the next month of my Yoga Teacher Training Certification program, I’ll have a room with a mini kitchen, a spacious bedroom with a TV and dressers, a lounge area and an outdoor balcony. It’s quite a swank pad!
Best of all, I finally get to root down!
