Winter is here and so is the cold and dark time of the year. If you are living in a tropical country, this might not be the case for you, but many of us do go through this tricky yet beautiful time of the year.

Yoga schenkt uns nicht nur die nötige Ruhe im Alltag sondern lässt und auch physisch und mental stärker werden. Als Yogalehrer(In) machst du deine Leidenschaft zum Beruf und bist Vorbild für viele. Was könnte es schöneres geben, als Menschen zu zeigen, wie sie gesunde Entscheidungen treffen können? Deinen Schülern zu mehr Ausgeglichenheit zu verhelfen und zu beobachten wie sie am Ende der Stunde in Shavasana komplett abschalten, ist ein wundervolles Gefühl, oder?
Review yourself. When was the last time that you experience the complete transformation of yourself including body, mind and soul? When you commit yourself to achieve a specific goal, you work hard and experience a complete transformation according to the desired goal of your life.
Similarly, when you think of Yoga teacher training, it encourages you to look at the pattern that is not the realm of your ultimate life. Yoga teacher training, it focuses on goal setting but it is not all about chasing a goal rather it is like transformation of yourself - your lifestyle, your vision and your inner being.
There’s no doubt that our minds are overstimulated and constantly on the go in today’s world, leaving us feeling stressed, anxious and depressed. Before I set out on my yoga teacher training journey, I was working flat-out in advertising, constantly feeling tired and exercise was the last thing on my to-do list. I felt completely overwhelmed and unable to cope with not just my job, but my life outside of work too. I was binge drinking on weekends and in a bad cycle of ‘work hard and party harder’ that I didn’t want to be in. My energy, confidence and will to do anything, other than Netflix and chill, was out the window. My physical and psychological health was at an all-time low- and I knew it because I actually noticed it.
While most people think that yoga means creating harmony and peace within body, mind and soul, it actually means “Chitta Vritti Nirodah”.
Translated from the Sanskrit, yoga is “Controlling the Fluctuations of the Mind”.
The countless benefits of yoga lead to a more peaceful, healthy and happy life. If you are interested to learn more deeply about yoga and understand the alignment, anatomy and philosophy of yoga as well, you must have been looking into doing a yoga teacher training.
If you love yoga as much as I do, you must have considered turning this valuable lifestyle and art of living peacefully into a career. Becoming a yoga teacher has been on my mind for a long time before I actually committed. It took some time to manifest my dream as it felt scary and overwhelming at first. Now, looking back, I understand that it had to be like this so I could jump over my personal barriers and break through something that didn’t suit my nature. In this post, I will share a few insights of becoming a yoga teacher with you that focuses on all the amazing benefits that this job brings along. Get a cup of tea and enjoy reading…????
How yoga can help you feel more grounded in your everyday life?
Each day presents us with incredible opportunities, realizations and transformations in every moment, some of which live inside of us and some outside. Individuals from cultures all around the world are becoming conscious of their power to adapt themselves in order to help each other find better, more meaningful ways of living.
Mental and physical tension is something that affects most people in their everyday life. What many people don’t understand is that through the practice of yoga, you are able to release these tensions and in return, live a happier, healthier, longer and more productive life. I personally have found the benefits of yoga and the release of mental and physical tension these past two years after using yoga as a way to help overcome anxiety that I struggled with in the past.
How can you eat so much without gaining weight“? This question accompanied me my whole life
until the age of 23. I was always called „the skinny one“ and I could eat whatever, whenever as
much as I wanted and I would have never imagined that my light body feeling I was used to, could
turn into the opposite one day.
