An update on my educational endeavors! I have finished my studies for the yoga therapy training and am applying what I have learned when designing personalized yoga practices for individuals. I’ve also received my certification to help individuals who suffer from Parkinson’s Disease. These two programs were SO very helpful in my development as a yoga teacher and therapist.
I am now in 300 hour teacher training to learn even more techniques, including helping individuals involved in 10-step programs as well as trauma victims. It’s amazing how much the information from the other programs is dovetailing into this training, painting a more complete picture to work with when designing practices. It’s really true that you can’t have too much information.
As part of this training, we were given the book The Desire Map by Danielle LaPorte to work through. I highly recommend this book to everyone. You answer questions about how you want to feel and then develop your goals around those internal desires. This makes the process of achieving your goals so much more fulfilling, and it’s much more likely you will complete the steps necessary to achieve those goals since they are rooted in your core desires.
Bottom line – always keep pursuing your desires, and never shy away from looking at things from a different perspective. You might be surprised at what you see.
