I have been trying to enjoy every last moment of theÂ few free weekends I have left before Yoga Teacher Training beginsÂ in early September. Â I couldn’t be more excited to start class and completely immerse myself in yoga, but I am going to miss my lazy weekend mornings and free afternoons to spend walking the Beltline, wondering around farmers markets and soaking up rays at the pool. Â Last weekend we decided toÂ advantage of a no plansÂ weekend andÂ Â crash Greg’s parents vacation in Destin, Florida. Â We had a lovely time in Destin at Miramar Beach– Â actually I can’t believe we haven’t made aÂ trip in the summer before. Â It was just a quick 5 hour drive, Â the ocean was unbelievable clear, the sand was flawlessÂ and the water temperature was perfect.Â I Â hope we turn this into a yearly trip!
Once September starts I will be opening a new leaf, and a rather busy one at that. Â I will be adding my first Emory MBA class to my schedule, oneÂ evening a week, and yoga teacher training class at Hotlanta Yoga on Friday evenings, Â 20 hours of class on the weekend,Â and I will be required to attend 3 yoga classes a week and assist one of the teachers in one class a week. Â See what Â I mean? A complete Yoga immersion for 3 months! Â I can’t wait!
After completing Yoga teacher training I will be certified under Yoga AllianceÂ as Registered Yoga Teachers at the 200 hour level. (RYT-200) Yoga Alliance is the largest nonprofit association representing the yoga community.Â It sets standards and provides credentials that are the premier form of recognition for yoga teachers and teacher-training programs.Â
