Sometimes you just have to jump…
Thank you so much for your interest in this 200 Hour RYT Teacher Training Program! I am elated at the possibility of helping you on the path as many have helped me on mine.
Maitri मैत्री is a Sanskrit word which can be translated as friendship, friendliness or benevolence. It can also be used to describe the mental union that takes place when two people are on the same wavelength. Maitri practice has been the most transformational for me, which is why I chose this name.
Maybe you have felt the call to explore the practice deeper, or thought the idea of teaching sounded fun? Deciding to become a teacher is a big deal. The practice is no longer your sacred personal space anymore, it can turn into many things: a job, another thing to do, a passion, or a virtuous life :) . The choice will be yours, but you must start to find out. Whatever the case, everything happens exactly as it should. You will certainly deepen your own knowledge and maybe it will ignite you enough that you wish to share this gift with others.
A 200 hour training is the tip of an iceberg. Your practice will contract and expand throughout your lifetime according to your karma and your ripening. My wish for you is that you are able to practice the teachings, take refuge in the teachings and this community, in a way that helps free you from the trap of unhappiness.
I am already here to support you, this is a vow that I took when I became a teacher. When we become a teacher, I don’t just mean participate in a training, but when we really become a teacher, we take a vow to continue living as many lifetimes as we can until all beings are free from suffering. I am committed to this, and now with this understanding of what “teaching” means, I will support you more deeply as we embark on a journey together in looking at the deeper dimensions of yoga.
