Becoming a yoga teacher was never a goal, something I never even considered doing – until I became a part of the community at Santosha and met dina Lang. I quickly began experiencing feelings of wanting to become a teacher and pass on the gift of yoga. I was on the fence about attending the training. Dina took the time to meet with me personally and patiently listened to me talk in circles about whether or not teacher training was a good idea for me. I am so happy I made the decision to attend teacher training and haven’t looked back since.
I will be the first to admit that I entered training as a self proclaimed “asana queen.” I struggled in the beginning with the yoga sutra’s and other sacred texts but quickly began to come around and found myself looking forward to our Wednesday night “spiritual stuff” discussions. Dina has an amazing ability to teach without forcing any of her own opinions and ideas on you and allowing you to go down your own path of self discovery. Now, this asana queen finds herself quoting the sutra’s at the end of a teaching a class and purchasing multiple books on the chakras. Not to worry, I still believe every chaturanga counts and that life is better spent balancing on your hands.
I am teaching several classes a week and am fortunate enough to be a part of the teaching staff at Santosha Yoga. Join me Thursday nights for some Power Vinyasa at 7 p.m. (a guaranteed good time!)
