After many years of asana and meditation practice on and off, my decision to take the 200 YTT was primarily to deepen and envelop my own personal practice. I came here to Rishikesh to heal old wounds and to grow and learn. I have always believed that the best way to learn something is to try to teach/share it with another person. So, after graduation I will take what I have learned here and apply it to my life. I plan to start my days early and salute the sun consistently. Pranayama and meditation will also continue to be a mandatory daily practice, as they have been here at school. It is easy to apply what I am learning here at the ashram, but the real test will be what I do when I get home, when “no one is watching”. Above all else, I believe the application of what I have learned to my own practice is crucial. I also plan to continue incorporating Kriya, especially Jala Netti. I see myself teaching friends and family and also spreading my knowledge wherever I go. This June, I will go to New Mexico, USA to attend a sustainable home-building course. I hope to teach a morning class with my classmates there. After that I will be going home to finish my B.S. and hope to teach a few classes in my local community center. I have a general feeling that I am getting closer and closer to finding my life’s work and that yoga is definitely a big part of that. This training is an initiation, a foundation lay work for a path that will continue to unfold with mystery, joy, struggle and reward.
