I’ve had an itch to become a yoga instructor for years, and recently took the plunge toward my 200-hour teacher training certification.
My time practicing yoga hasn’t been too long. I started in college, attending classes with my mother at a local medical center. While I enjoyed it, it always felt really slow to me, not enough of a “workout” and simply put, a little boring. I’d been really active as a kid, participating in high intensity sports like soccer, tennis, and long-distance running, and the idea of an hour devoted to “stretching” and “breathing” when one could be out in the sunshine and working up a sweat didn’t sound like my idea of a good time.
