Please enjoy this entry from our guest blogger, Derrick. He just completed the yoga teacher training with the Maritime Yoga College.
Week 14 - April 25th & 26th:
Although I am incredibly grateful to have had this opportunity, it is hard for me to grasp that we have completed our 200-hr yoga teacher training with the Maritime Yoga Teacher College. It is hard to believe that each of us participated in at least 10 yoga classes over the last two days. It is hard to accept that this journey has come to completion and yet it's exciting as we start a new one.
Each of us came to the teacher training for our own reasons and we transformed in our own ways, and now we each leave onto our own path. Through this teacher training we have gained the skills, knowledge, and confidence to competently guide others in the practice, and we have forged friendships with each other that will carry through the rest of our lives.
Witnessing the growth and transformation of each other has been deeply inspiring and moving. As we came together for our graduation ceremony we overflowed with gratitude and love. Gratitude for the opportunity offered through this yoga teacher training and the experiences we shared together. Love for ourselves, love for each other, and love for the earth.
This experience has been life changing. I feel more in touch with my self and my purpose. I personally recommend that each have the opportunity to take such training like the one offered by Maritime Yoga College. Your life will be better because of it.
