Sukatha of a Yoga Teacher: Brooke
सुकथा Sukatha of a Yoga Teacher: Brooke
Sukatha means beautiful story, meet Brooke, a recent Yoga Teacher Trainee, this is her sukatha!
For the past 10 years I’ve played around with yoga… trying classes randomly. Initially I went to a yoga class for the physical exercise. About 2 years ago I decided to take a deeper look into the yoga practice and learn about other benefits associated with yoga.
As a nurse, I am constantly taking care of everyone else. I rarely devote time to myself or give myself love and attention. Yoga provides that for me. Its something that I can do to give back to myself. Shortly after getting into yoga on a deeper level, my mother passed away. The death of my mother flipped my world upside down. I began to question everything and doubt everything (sometimes I still do) … It literally broke my soul into pieces… And then suddenly something amazing happened… Yoga Teacher Training.
They say things happen for a reason, that when one door closes another door opens. I had never really understood this or experienced it personally until this moment. I decided to take yoga teacher training for myself. To learn about myself. To learn how to love myself. To learn about the history of yoga. To learn about the religious side of yoga… and I’m still learning. That’s the beauty of it, there is always more to learn and the journey never ends.
Currently I am teaching a donation based class at design archives the first Tuesday of each month. I wanted to offer an affordable option for people to take a yoga class. For the future… I am hoping to connect yoga with the Ronald McDonald House here in Winston-Salem. raising awareness for the organization and sharing my love for yoga with anyone who is willing to listen.
