The teacher training course was amazing! Beautiful moments of union, friendships, studies, learning and practice, which made me one before and another after the course. I was looking to refine my knowledge in alignment and execution of asanas, but I also left there with special teachings for life! I highlight Rosana's mother's affection and the humor and creativity in Rapha's class!
When I decided to take the yoga teacher training, I was looking for something that could improve my practice, body awareness and strength in the way of self-realisation, however, after the first class I forgot everything I had been looking for (laughs), I realized that I was exactly where I was supposed to be, where I was going to be challenged, step out of my physical, emotional and spiritual comfort zone, was really a dip, dip into the earth, becoming a seed and open to all the nurturing that was to come. We call it Formation, but for me it was an empirical experience, I learned about asanas, philosophy, scriptures and relationships, and yoga is that, relationship, isn't it? With the other, with the whole and with yourself! I strengthened the body and the bonds, we watered the seed with sweat (it's chaturanga after chaturanga) and tears (of joy, love, longing), the ears were getting more and more accurate and the Sanskrit sounded like a known friend, I was present and I got the sangha as a gift. Finally, I am grateful for the decision I made back there, when I decided to perfect myself on this Yoga path, this path that we build every day. Training is a stage of discovery, of giving a lot of dedication, study and love, and it was certainly the right fertilizer for me to continue with more strength the challenges that are to come. Thank you Rapha, Rô and Sangha.
