It was September 2016 when I 'graduated' from my six month yoga teacher training, there is not such a thing as 'now I know everything because I have a certificate', but it has been the amount of hours and commitment to my practice and learnings who makes me the teacher I am today. I am still constantly learning.
I have not quit my job and gone to pursue a lifestyle as a full-time yoga teacher, as many of you can relate, I have bills to pay and a comfortable city lifestyle which I'd like to sustain. This is the reason that inspired me to start CorpYoga, because it has been part of my daily routine to incorporate yoga in my modern lifestyle.

I love going back to the foundations of yoga, that it isn't just the physical postures (āsana) but all eight elements (which I'll get into my next post). But what I love about teaching basics are the students. Beginner students, even regular practitioners, when they step into a foundation class, there is so much space for our mind to grow and new discoveries to the true central alignments of our bodies.
I find students who are shy of trying out a class because they are not flexible, and it probably deflates their egos, but
start simple, start basic, let go of that ego once you're on your yoga mat and learn with an open heart from teachers who inspire and believe in you.
It's reaching my bedtime... so that's all for today.
