10 Ways Teacher Training Changed the Lives of Spark Teachers:
Teacher Training is a big investment - we get it. That is exactly what it is- an investment. Once you finish Spark Teacher Training, it's yours. It will not break down after 2 years, fray after multiple uses, this knowledge to refine your body and mind is yours forever. Here are a top 10 impacts that Teacher Training had on the Spark Teachers:
Get Stronger – Physically, Emotionally
Teacher training is about becoming the ultimate student. I learned so much about the practice and making the practice work for my body. Teacher training also enabled me to find extraordinary freedom and strength off of my mat by giving me the tools to let go of ego and attachment.
Step Out of Your Comfort Zone
One of the biggest benefits I received from Teacher Training was learning how to notice fear and when it was blocking me from connecting with other people. You find blocks that you may not have known were there and you work on removing the obstacles preventing you from becoming the best version of yourself.
Laugh, Cry, Sweat
Teacher Training is intense! You are physically exhausted at the end, but emotionally and spiritually charged! There are moments when you may uncontrollably cry or outrageously laugh, but it happens because you are emptying your metaphorical bowl for something awesome and sweet.
Find Your Voice
Teacher training taught me to speak my truth with confidence. Instead of constantly worrying about the reactions, needs, judgment, and preferences of others, I learned to confidently say what was on my mind in a thoughtful and caring way.
New Flames, Old Flames - Prioritize
I loved the community at Spark and it taught me so much more about myself and my relationships. Teacher Training gave me the time and space to prioritize my life.
Become the Rock
Teacher Training gave me a fresh start after some tough times. I was able to reevaluate the difficulties and challenges in my own life and learn how I could use yoga to help others.
Get it done. Start the journey.
There will always be a reason not to do it. There will always be a reason why it might not work with your schedule. The time is now for growth and this was the first step. If goals are dreams with deadlines, I knew I had to do teacher training.
Acquire Tools to Overcome Difficult Times
Steady seas never made a skilled sailor.
Yoga helped me navigate a very difficult time and I was compelled to share the benefits with everyone. Watching and holding space for transformation in others gives me a meaningful purpose and a sense of satisfaction every day.
Learn Why Yoga Feels So Good
Committing to Teacher Training was an easy decision for me. I quickly fell in love with the practice late in life, and how it was much more than simply a work-out. My mind, spirit, and body all feel great after practice. I knew that there had to be much more than what I could read in a book or learn from a few smart sounding quotes from a teacher during class. Teacher Training was the mechanism for me to dive deep into where yoga came from, explore the theory of how it works, and take my practice to the next level.
Get Full (On Life)
Yoga makes me a better human. I wanted to learn the way of gifting this boost of life to others.
