After 10 yrs. of laughing at other yoga students, debating the pros and cons of B.K.S. Iyengar vs Pattabhi Jois and critiquing the knowledge of yoga teachers, I committed myself to the 2yr Advanced Teacher Training Program of the Iyengar Yoga Institute of San Francisco.
A small part of my commitment (for the next two years) was attending an asana class which would focus on “my posture.” Friday nights 6:00 - 9:00 pm.
In my 1st quarter [of 6]; 37 yoga students attended the Friday night "ass kicking 3 hour yoga class."
In the 2nd quarter [of 6], the Senior Iyengar Yoga Teacher removed “my glorious ego” and restored humility to my life. Which in turn, allowed me the opportunity to grow & the opportunity learn.
In my 6th quarter [of 6] in the yoga teacher training; 7 [of 36] yoga students remained in the Friday night yoga class..
Upon completing the 6th quarter of the Iyengar Yoga Institute of San Francisco's 2yr. 500 hr. Advanced Teacher Training Program , I was proud to be 1 of 7. Also, I was proud of the other 6 students who persevered.
