More thoughts on YTT

After speaking with my husband and one of my closet friends and rethinking my decision..... I think I am gonna stick with the program I am currently attending. My main reasons for considering other schools were really only just the distance and the students "weren't friendly' i have to laugh now that I think about it. My husband made a good point by saying that my other options for training would add stress, just because I would need a sitter for the week night classes. This wouldn't be such a problem if we didn't live 1 hr away from our potential baby sitters. My friend also shared a good point by saying that maybe I am supposed to be in that class to change the energy. I also took time to really reflect on my first class. I didn't realize that I learned so much! WE covered sun salutations, seated forward bends, pranayama, chakras, and some of the principles of yoga. The instructor also sent notes before class that discussed some dhyana techniques and some of the yamas. I actually have quite a few notes now that I look back. We also discussed mental noting. I was in such a panic because there wasn't a "syllabus" . I hardly paid any attention to my instructors email that discussed our goals/topics for our next class! The drive is still a concern, its not impossible but it is far. Its also only about 2x a month I will be going. SInce moving to my new home, I have had no choice but to get over my issues with driving farther than I am comfortable with. I will never forget how stressed I was the first few times I drove to and from work. The ride seemed so long and I just wanted to get where I was going. I was constantly clocking my time. Now, my commute is time for me to think, enjoy music, or just enjoy a quiet moment. I have no doubt that I will soon feel the same if not even better about my YTT commute. Now I am trying to take use my time between classes to start to accept that I am pursing one of my goals! I am very excited for this journey even though I know it takes me out of my comfort zone, I know its not going to be easy. I know that I got the email months after applying for a reason. I just have to trust want the universe is telling me. Over the next couple weeks, I plan on practicing sun salutations, forward bend sequence, pranayama, mental noting, yamas,dhyana, and whatever else I can fit in. I am especially excited to try Nada Pranyama and Suddhi :) Till next time
