Yoga Teacher Training – Preparing to begin

In about 3 weeks I will begin my 200-hour yoga teacher training.  It will be over the course of 11 months and will include classes, workshops, class observations, reading and writing assignments, etc.  I am prepared to not only learn about each pose (asana) but also about myself.  Every other class or training I have taken before was technical (computer science related) or very structured (program mgmt).  So I have nothing in my past to compare this type of training.  I also knew the outcome of my past training sessions.  I would learn a skill to apply to my current career like how to best generate a project charter and work breakdown structure.  I would know before taking the class what to expect and how I would use the information.  This is a training that I only have a vague idea of what to expect and I am not sure if I will end up teaching or not.  I know it will be a very personal journey and I am entering this next 11 months with an open mind and heart.  I am going to put much time and effort towards soaking up as much information as possible.  I realize that some days will be better than others and I might feel overwhelmed or frustrated at times.  I also know I will end up seeing my personal yoga practice differently.  I am both nervous and excited.  I already purchased the books and even almost completed reading one of them.  I have some other office supplies like notebooks and a binder to keep all of my papers organized.  I even completed my CPR certification a couple of weeks ago.  I feel both prepared and not prepared at all!

I will be sharing items that I am learning along the way on my blog like the Chakras and 8 Limbs of Yoga.  I will also be detailing how I am personally doing along the way.  I hope this information can be helpful to others interested in taking the training.  Maybe it will even inspire someone to try yoga.

  1. Hi Carol! Exciting things going on in your life! Will look forward to all you share. Do you use a particular brand of journal? Am going to start and for now just using a notebook I bought on Etsy.


    1. Thanks Susie! Nice to hear from you! I purchased a regular notebook to take notes during class. I already have my 2018 Erin Condren LifePlanner so I did not need another journal with days of the week. However, I am highly considering getting an InnerGuide journal You can also find them listed on Amazon. I think it would be nice to track this year so I can look back and see my progress. Both physical, mental and emotional.
