Yoga Teacher Training Journeys

Yoga in remote Coober Pedy

March 1st, 2010 Posted in Why enrol in Yoga Teacher Training?

Since discovering yoga one year ago, I have always wanted to develop my personal practice by enrolling into a disciplined intensive course to maximize the benefits within a defined timeframe. This is partly due to the remoteness of Coober Pedy and also because there are no active fitness programs up and running (yet!) in town.

Inadvertently, upon the community hearing of the news that I was contemplating this course, local council took initiative to raise interest within the community with the result being overwhelming; with sponsorship, venue discounts, individual donations and encouragement!

Due to this, I intend to fulfill a local program to provide classes in Coober Pedy upon completion of this course. I am now enjoying the holistic approach and my focus is to be a confident, warm-hearted teacher armed with enough knowledge to commence and maintain a practice in outback Australia.

Before beginning the course; my focus was solely asanas. Now I have keen interest in the following:

  1. Meditation/ Pranayama  (personally challenged in this area)
  2. Nutrition (to maintain a strict sattvic diet and knowing how to combine food combinations to extract the most nutrition)
  3. Philosophy
  4. To enjoy the NOW!

Thank you for providing this opportunity as my changes within thus for have been immense!
