“It is better to live your own destiny imperfectly than to live an imitation of somebody else's life with perfection.” The Bhagavad Gita

In the midst of the most recent dissolution of my marriage, to my husband of 13 years, (I’m going to pause you all here and say how terrifying it is to write these words and make them public, but I am doing it anyway, because I love you. More on that another day), I have taken to walking my dog for long periods of time in the cold-windy weather listening to Oprah Winfrey’s Supersoul Conversations podcast. As soon as I press play and hear Oprah’s rich, familiar voice say, “I believe the greatest gift we can give ourselves is time, “ I start to cry. I watched Oprah devotedly as a child, and then again as an adult while I nursed my newborn children. The sound of her voice touches my heart in such a way that I feel vulnerable and immediately undone, which happens to be exactly what I am seeking right now.

Deciding to take a teacher training is akin to professing your love to the art and practices of yoga that have already given you so much.  It’s a marriage rooted in curiosity, creativity, experimentation and togetherness.  It’s also a marriage that moves in the world of the unknown, like all unions really. As Rumi so perfectly puts it,  “Out beyond the ideas of right and wrong doing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there.”  This should be printed on the t-shirt of every 200 hour teacher training in Portland, because ideally a teacher training should be that field.  

 

The 200 hour teacher training is a slim doorway to a lifetime of study. It’s a place where we get a chance to expand our minds and hearts, feel into our practice, into our bodies,  and become explorers of Yoga and ourselves without the tethers of right and wrong doing.  It’s a time to question what we think we already know about ourselves and the asana, and delve deep into the places within that have y...
