The urge to get my teacher training certification built like a wave over the course of a decade, reaching its apex one foggy evening on holiday in San Francisco, when I cut an evening out short to rush to a computer to fill out the application. Epiphany-fueled compulsion aside, I wasn’t completely sure what I was getting myself into or what would come of it, but I knew I wanted more yoga in my life, and I knew Source would lead me down the right path. Months after I received my 200-hour certification from Source, the teachings of Nicole and all of the talented, kind, intelligent yogis who imparted their wisdom throughout the six-month training continue to influence my life every single day, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. My yoga practice on the mat has improved exponentially, and I was able to get in touch with a spirituality and wholeness that has brought me an overarching sense of peace – not to mention a new career!
But most notably, and most surprisingly to me, I learned how to take the philosophy and spirituality of yoga off the mat and into the rest of my life. With a lot of work, and a lot of help, I gained greater access to intuition, personal relationships improved, and physical and emotional issues I’ve struggled with for years began to heal. With the guidance I received over those intense weekends, I found a true passion. The training I received fully prepared me to become a yoga teacher, and I’m so proud to be able to share that with yogis at Source and other studios in Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York. There was never any question in my mind of where I wanted to complete my yoga teacher training, and I wholeheartedly believe anyone, regardless of intent or ability, will achieve better understanding of yoga, themselves and their place in this world by taking any or all of the teacher training workshops at Source.
