In this episode I am talking about qualifying as a yoga teacher. I reflect back on my training and discuss what I have learnt… I realised throughout the training that I don’t have my shit together, but that is ok. I burst my bubble of ‘everything is ok and needs to be perfect’ and now I live in the real world, but I am happier than ever.
I talk about the pressure from social media to be perfect all the time and show off this perfect image to the rest of the world. I then go on to share an affirmation I use everyday which has changed my life:
IT IS OK TO MAKE MISTAKES.
IT IS OK TO MESS UP.
IT IS OK TO GET MESSY.
IT IS OK TO BE VULNERABLE.
I have learnt all of this throughout the past 7 months of training to be a yoga teacher and now I am able to let go of mistakes and accept the fact that they will happen.
In this conversation I then speak about what I am planning to do now I have finished my training. I talk about the vipassana (meditation course/retreat) I am going on and I speak the big questions that I want to answer.. these are: WHAT DO I WANT OUT OF LIFE and WHO AM I?
I then go on to talk about community. I speak about how I have discovered so much community during my yoga teacher training and how important it is.
