“It has been a journey that I will be forever grateful for!”
It forced me dive into myself & is helping me to begin to establish a relationship between my physical body, my mind and my soul.
Some days I thought were “rock bottom” … but it only made me realize that was part of the journey, the journey of trusting myself of becoming my own “hero” the person who I’ve always been but have never really trusted! All these “things” I see as signs from the universe telling myself to trust ME to believe in ME and to hear ME … to L O V E me as I am and accept all the little “flaws” that comes with being a human and all.
But I couldn’t have done it without all these beautiful souls, these magical humans who were always there to listen to just “one more story” of why “I’m crying right now” or to give me some ibuprofen when my muscles ached or to pay for a cab ride back to the hotel when I didn’t have any more cash on me and didn’t sweat it cause “it happens to all of us” or that person who believed in me more than I did when I finally landed that “tri-pod headstand” and says “I told you, you could do it!” Or that person who held my hand while I got stitches for the first time & for that I’m so thankful to you all ♥︎ .
if that weren’t enough the universe blessed me with some great teachers. So knowledgeable while being so understanding when we were faced with feeling frustrated. Teachers Who would stay 15 (or more) minutes after a two hour lecture or practice making sure they answered all our questions … & to our yoga philosophy teachers who knew some subjects were hard & uncomfortable and gave us time to absorve it all and were understanding if we (me) shed a tear and needed a moment to ourselves. Thank you @thepeacefulwarriorsyoga for this journey I couldn’t be more grateful!

“…most incredible group of students”
To put the last month into words is impossible, to put into feelings is impossible and to put into emotions is even more impossible.
When I signed up for my yoga teaching course I genuinely didn’t expect so learn so much about myself, I didn’t expect to open my heart and open my mind as much and sure as hell didn’t expect to open my tear ducts as much.
I think I’m still trying to process, or even being to process the learnings and new ways of thinking. So from here, the learnings & new practices have only began. From here, I’m nervous for a new future and from here all I can say is fuk yes.
Thank you @thepeacefulwarriorsyoga for this journey. Thank you to the most incredible group of students I got to share this with, and thank you to all my incredible teachers legit you’ve changed my life. 😭

“…thank you for sharing this journey with me”
It’s official, completed my 200 hour yoga teacher training with @thepeacefulwarriorsyoga. Without sounding cliché, this journey was life changing. When we think of yoga we often only think of the physical practice, poses, turning oneself into a pretzel! It’s the western way of thinking, and we forget about the connection to the mind and soul. We forget that yoga is also about the breath, meditation, energy systems and the power of what this connection can bring to our lives. I am full of gratitude! I have found a deeper purpose from this journey and I look forward to what lies ahead to help others live a more healthy, and meaningful life.
To all my teachers Bente, Maria, Sean, Rachel, Analu, Magdalena thank you for inspiring me, I have a light inside that is shining brighter then ever!
And to my fellow classmates, thank you for sharing this journey with me, for being vulnerable, and for being courageous! I do not believe we came together by chance, but more so to each learn and grow from one another.
