The YCW’s Teacher Training Program is Worth a Look

Are you ready to take your yoga practice to another level? If yes, no, maybe, you might be wondering what “another level” might look like. So, what programs are available? Some people sign up for month-long yoga immersions: these events are located far from home and can be gruelling experiences (and expensive and disruptive to family life). If you’re inclined to a program here in Winnipeg, that recognizes yoga as a process, not an event, then the Yoga Centre Winnipeg’s teacher training program might be worth a look.

Yoga is a process… not an event

Not sure you want to teach yoga? Understandable! I’m at the halfway point of the two-year program and I’m still deciding about whether I’ll teach. What I do know, is the YCW’s teacher training program is enriching my practice.  And as I grow in my understanding of the art and science of yoga, I’m freeing what is already within – joy, compassion, self knowledge.
Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built. ~ Rumi

Now that you know the YCW’s teacher training program is available, look at the details on

the Yoga Journey

I have been doing yoga for a few years now, and I can definitely say that committing to yoga means committing to a relationship. One relationship with yourself, and eventually one with the rest of the world. Yoga is exactly how I perceive the world to be: limitless. There is no limit when it comes to where you take yourself within yoga - the opportunities, lessons and growth are constant as well as endless. You are able to test yourself, to open your mind, and to challenge your body all at your own pace.

What is even better, is the alignment involved when you begin to practice frequently. This alignment exists not only physically, but mentally as well as emotionally. It truly brings you back to what really matters, and the growing awareness is undeniable. Even if that means going through a few (or more than a few) rough patches to get there.

Now, all of this may sound interesting yet vague, but yoga can be a bit unexplainable from one person to the next. This is due to the sole fact that we are all on our own complex and wonderful life journey; yoga patiently reminds us of just that.
