It’s official!!!!!! After a 3-month tour of yoga studios in NYC, having coffee meetings with instructors, emailing past trainees and general online research….then doing some soul searching/praying/reflecting on what I truly wanted to gain from the training….. then filling out a fairly long and therapy like application….. I’m officially enrolled in Laughing Lotus’ Yoga Teacher Training Program! Classes start Feb 7.
It took me so long to make a final decision because there are lots of great programs in NYC. In the end, Laughing Lotus was the only YTTP that met all the items on my “wish list” – a “be yourself” / “find your own voice” vibe, good nationwide/global reputation, rigor of training, emphasis on alignment, allows for authentic exploration of the Yoga Sutras, incorporates Ayurveda and Kirtan, yoga studios in more than 1 state, community classes (where recent 200-hour graduates can teach a full yoga class), assigned senior teacher mentor and Yoga Alliance certified.
