I have been doing exercise for years by going to gym and classes. I always like yoga as I feel good after the class. However apart from feeling good, I felt that I did not learnt much. (the instructor will not ‘touch’ us so I am not too sure if my postures and alignment are correct. And they are always giving instructions such as exhale and inhale.) I wanted something more. So when I came across this Yoga self practice module (I don’t have the intention to become instructor. I just want to benefit myself.) provided by Tirisula , I immediately signed up.
I still remember my first lesson, mixing with 200 hours classmates , they are all so pro(while I am still gym class level). The trainers are encouraging, as they would constantly remind us not to compare with others. After 5 weeks of training, I actually switched to 200 hours…I still did not have the intention to become instructor as I believe the certificate is just the ‘hardware’ which I should not focus on. I should be enjoying the ‘software’: encouraging instructors, humoroushelpful and positive classmates, feeling ‘enriched’ (physically and psychologically) after every lesson.
Every weekend(730am-1pm) for 15 weeks sounded crazy to some of my friends but I always remember this sentence from one of my favourite book ”Seek comfort and you will shrink into the background, and never accomplish what you hope to.”
