My Experience of Yoga Teacher Training

Written by: Nandini Trivedi

I originally went to take Yoga teacher training because I was in between jobs and needed something to pass the time until I figured out what my next step would be. Little did I know that this training would change my life forever. The 200 hours of yoga, breathwork, philosophy, meditation and more allowed me the opportunity to get out of my head and in tune with my inner emotions, mind, and body. 

I realized there was a spiritual world outside of big corporate jobs, material desires, vacations and petty gossip. There was more to be discovered and delved into. There were real situations in the world and people that needed healing. I needed healing. We shove so many things under the rug as we move through life. Being in this non-judgemental, safe space allowed me the comfort and opportunity to sit with my deep-rooted emotions and move them through my body with this practice of yoga to help release what was no longer serving me. I wouldn’t trade my experience for the world as it brought me to reality and woke me up from living behind rose colored glasses.
