JUST A GIRL, HER BACKPACK, AND HER YOGA MAT...
I decided to embark on a journey to Southeast Asia. A journey all the way across the globe yes, but also a journey within. During my travels I visited six countries and too many cities to count. Each city of all these amazing countries had something unique and beautiful to offer- and I found that true for their yoga classes, too. With each class, I was learning more and gaining a deeper understanding of this ancient practice than I ever had back home. Each teacher had their own style and brought a bit of themselves into the classes they led. I was absolutely inspired. While staying in Northern Thailand, I found myself in a long conversation with my yoga teacher that changed my travel path in the best possible way. Afterward, I began searching for teacher training programs. I found a 200 hour YTT through World Yoga Alliance in Chaing Rai, just north of where I was staying. I continued to research WYA and discovered that their focus is on traditional Indian Hatha yoga. I quickly realized this was exactly the training that I wanted and needed. We were taught the Eastern way of yoga, where the practice originated. Each day at Adinath Ashram, I felt my practice deepening by learning the history and philosophy of yoga, proper Sanskrit, and alignment. With this new found knowledge came an invigorated passion and appreciation for yoga. A light had been ignited in my soul.
I have always known I am meant to help others, by teaching yoga I am finally living my truth.
