I decided to take the leap and join waves of yogis in by taking yoga teacher training in 2012. The intention was that I wanted to have a practice I could take with me, wherever I went. I decided to go with Adishesha at school and studio run by Basia Going, long-time teacher in the Ottawa area.
Teacher training at Adishesha proved intense. It was exhausting, physically and emotionally. It also changed my life. In my first years of practicing yoga, I appreciated the most a heavy, physical practice. If I wasn't sore and sweaty, and pushing myself to my limits, I wasn't having a good 'practice'. After a few years of yoga, and ton of other life experience, I enjoy now a much slower and grounded practice. I realized it wasn't actually the sweat and sore muscles that made me come back to yoga, it was that it calmed and slowed me down.
