During Yoga Teacher Training, you will be working deeply with yourself, as well as closely with other individuals and the group as a whole. You will be presented with a range of different teaching and learning styles, some familiar and others that you may be unaccustomed to. You will likely be challenged emotionally, mentally, energetically, and spiritually. This is normal! Remember to have grace with yourself, but also hold your personal accountability in high standards. Some parts will feel easy and fun, others more challenging, but ultimately balanced.
