Congratulations to our 200hr Yoga Teacher Training graduates
After a year in a pandemic, it is a pleasure to congratulate our Spring 2021 Yoga Teacher Training graduates from our home base here in Winston-Salem, NC! As I prepared for our closing ceremonies I was reminded of our yoga school’s lineage, that of Krishnamacharya. His teachings invite us into understanding that each person will have a different starting point, but the fulfilling experience of yoga will utilize five elements. Asana. Pranayama. Chanting. Meditation. Ritual.
Our rituals include an invitation to:
1. Read the texts and read them behind the words.
2. Remember, the moment you call yourself a guru or a yogi, you are not. Stay humble.
3. “A king may move a man, a father may claim a son, but remember that even when those who move you be kings, or men of power, your soul is in your keeping alone. When you stand at the end of your life you cannot say, ‘I was told by others to do this’ or ‘virtue was not convenient at the time.’ This will not suffice. Remember that.”
4. Dance, natarajasana, the dance of Shiva, of creation and destruction.
AS we closed our semester my prayer for each new teacher is this: May you remember who you are. May you speak your truth. May you find wisdom under the surface. May you find the courage to create & destroy as to love a life you’re proud of and humbled by. May you remember your worth, enoughness, and that you’re supported and loved.
Congratulations yall, I love each of you and am so proud to welcome you to the K10Yoga Family! 💕 Explore. Dream. Discover. You!
