Over the past week, the pieces have been falling into place for me to actually take the steps to become a certified yoga teacher. This has been a latent dream of mine for the past few years especially when I was engaged in my year of immersed yoga practice at Lotus Seed in Portland, OR in 2010 and 2011. I was volunteering at the studio in anyway they needed. I swept and vacuumed the studio floors, I managed the reception desk and I helped on their monthly newsletter.
Beginning in college and afterwards, I've been engaged in the contemplative arts of yoga and meditation. I've studied and participated in a Zen Buddhist Meditation group at Occidental and spent 2009-2010 completing the 150-hour meditation Way of Shambhala training at the Los Angeles Shambhala Center in Eagle Rock and Santa Monica. For the past year, I've been studying vinyasa flow under Jeffrey Taylor.
Now I'm living in Brooklyn, NY and it is time for me to once again reinvigorate my practice. I am in the process of enrolling for the Fall 2013 Teacher Training Program at Jai Yoga Arts. Thank you for guidance on my journey.
