In fall 2010, I started doing daily practice of hatha yoga. Armed with “Yoga for Dummies”, a mat, and a few years of meditation practice, I set out to get my body into better physical shape, and see what spiritual applications this practice could have in my life. After a couple weeks of experimentation, I came to find that my favorite time to yoga was first thing in the morning, shortly after sunrise. I engaged this practice with enthusiasm and joy. In 2011, one of my friends went into yoga teacher training. On a couple occasions, he led me through a series, and the experience was most enjoyable since I was able to “let go” and be more “meditative”. Yoga practice was becoming a tool in my spiritual growth, and my soon coming spiritual awakening. In fall of 2011, after finally acknowledging the importance of a teacher, I experimented with yoga classes. I tried several different types, finding that I enjoyed Yin/Restorative and Kundalini, and that “hot” and intensive “flow” classes are definitely NOT my style. I did learn how much I love yoga when it is done in a way that is harmonious with who I am.
I decided at this point that I wanted to be a yoga teacher. Some of the teachers were amazing, and some didn’t quite tickle my fancy. I felt that my energy leading a class would be exactly what those seeking more of a meditative/spiritual experience would enjoy. After talking with my friend who was doing training, following his advice and my own research, I settled on the styles that I want to train in, and found schools to facilitate my learning.
Last summer, I attended a weekend workshop at the main school I wanted to do training at, and I fell in love with Kripalu Yoga, the school, and the city/community the school is located in. Kripalu is EVERYTHING my higher self told me it would be and more. I promptly upon returning home sent in my application and deposit. A week and half later, I received an email saying that I’d been accepted for the fall 200-hr intensive. So, I started saving my money. When the fall session came about, I did not have enough saved up to pay for the training, so I changed my slot to the spring 2013 session. For Christmas, my brother gave me 20% of what I needed as a gift, getting me much closer. However, my financial situation did not stay as abundant as I had planned, which brings this story to current date.
My financial situation has me in a place where I can make ends me, yet no more. So, I am turning to you, my beloved readers for help. Sometimes you just have to let go, and ask for help. So last night, I asked God, the masters, the angels, and my higher self for help, and I was guided to put out a call to the wonderful people who read this blog. Please, help me realize a dream, that will begin the snowball that turns my life into everything I dream of and more. Below is “Donation” button that makes it easy to donate money to my paypal so that I can make this happen. I feel like I am truly ready, and this spring 2013 is the best time for me to plant the seeds of my future.
