A new year means new opportunities for self-growth. Let’s make 2021 the year we practice courage, attempt something new, and pursue our dreams. Instead of setting New Year’s resolutions, set an intention or power phrase for the year. What word or phrase could capture your intention for the year? Perhaps, your word could be “evolve.”
This word or power phrase can be carried into your yoga practice. No matter what you want to learn, how you wish to relate to others, or how you want to pursue life in the new year, yoga can help you achieve your New Year’s intentions. Consider taking part in yoga teacher training. Below, you’ll find three ways YTT can help you evolve in 2021.
Garner Support in the New Year
If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s the importance of relationships. We wouldn’t have been able to make it through the craziness of the year if it wasn’t for our little communities of friends and family. Start your New Year off right by signing up for a yoga teacher training and begin to build and grow your community of like-minded yogis. Learning the foundations of yoga and experiencing self-growth together will create incredible bonds that will carry you wherever your yoga practice takes you – whether you keep the training to yourself to deepen your personal practice or whether you pursue opening your own yoga studio one day. These relationships can keep you accountable to your intention for the year.
Grow in Self-Awareness
Yoga teacher training can help you connect with your inner self. Through this training, you’ll grow in self-awareness and self-expression. Health Yoga Life’s training includes journaling exercises that support this self-growth. With YTT, you’ll discover your voice, your confidence, and your authenticity – all three of which will ensure that your future in yoga (and possibly teaching) will be free of anxiety. Put aside your fears, remember your intention to evolve, and commit to transformation in 2021.
Refresh Your Training
If you’ve gone through YTT in the past, then you may be thinking you couldn’t possibly benefit from taking another course. We don’t believe this is true. In fact, we’re firm believers that participating in training more than once can be a great way to refresh your memory. Perhaps there was something you missed the first time around. Or, perhaps, you took a yoga training course somewhere else. HYL’s program can offer you the opportunity to reinforce what you already know and provide new perspectives to help you evolve in your yoga.
Is Yoga Teacher Training for You?
The biggest concern many yogis have in regard to yoga teacher training is that they feel they’re not advanced enough in their practice. This is simply not so. Yoga training is for anyone curious about yoga. All flexibilities, body types, and experience levels are encouraged to participate in YTT. No matter where you are in your training, you are on a collective path with people who will love you and support you as you learn together.
