200 Hour Teacher Training

I did it!! I am a certified yoga instructor!   I have officially completed 200 hour training and Extensions at Corepower Yoga Walnut Street (CPY).   Even more exciting, I am teaching a beginner vinyasa flow once a week at CPY at 6pm on Wendesdays and a Wake Up Yoga class on Tuesday mornings in my office building.  That’s right!

This is the extensions group with our stellar instructors!

The whole Teacher Training program at CPY was incredible.  I learned so much about myself, gained strength, both physical and mental, and confifencce … I am more happy then I ever thought i would be.  It helped that my whole group was fantastic … I love them all.   When I began, I did not understand how emotionally attached I would get with all of these folks … It is a feeling like non other.

Teacher training was fun, but also very intense … 9 hours of class time, plus 60 yoga classes in 9 weeks on top of my full time job.  I was exhausted, but, I am not going to lie, it was all worth it and I’d do it again in a heartbeat.  It helped that my supper supportive fiance person cooked, cleaned, did laundry, picked me up from the train …. he helped me every way he could … I couldn’t have made it through with out him.  I am one lucky chick.

One of my favorite parts of teacher training, was our Karma project.   We built kits out of donations from KIND for Our Brother’s Place’, a local shelter in Philadelphia,    As we were building, I learned that the owner of Crossfit Center City, Wylie, founded UliftU, a program that teaches unemployed, formerly incarcerated and homeless a job skill in the wellness world so they are able to go out in the world and be successful.  We walked our kits over to Wylie’s CrossFit gym where we took a half hour yoga class with two of the UliftU participants.  They were so .
