I attended Danita’s class on Sunday October 4 11:30-12:30. The highlights were cowface pose, grounded fish, and Bee Breath. Danita told us what she would be doing, involved us, and took us on a Happy little Yoga Journey. Her sequencing was neat, well planned and executed. Her cues were clear and her voice was even and kind and she gave us just what we needed. I was so sorry when the time was up. I attended virtually. Thank you Danita for an awesome class and DRISHTIQ for turning out such quality teachers and experience.
My path to yoga teacher training took a long time. I wish it had developed quicker, but I have to appreciate my path.
I have a past life in finance. 20 years of it. Commuting downtown, wearing suits, trying to find balance. To fight baby weight, like so many I found running and I also did weight training. I added marathons and triathlons and every workout video series imaginable. I also did some yoga. However, I had that common mentality that I had to be out training for my next endurance event, and that I couldn’t “afford” that much time on my mat.
About 10 years ago, I transitioned out of finance, obtained a personal training certification and after a while landed at a retirement community where I now manage the Wellness Center. Working in this environment was my window back to yoga. They needed a stretching class a few years back. I volunteered to teach it and it quickly became a class infused with yoga poses. After several years of teaching this class, it slowly evolved into more and more of a traditional yoga class.
Knowing that I needed more training to improve my methods, knowledge base and physical practice, I was blessed to take part in the Teacher Training program at Drishtiq. Little did I know how much I needed that training! It helped in all aspects of my life. With the support of my family, I was able to achieve that goal of being a registered yoga teacher and look forward to continuing my yogic journey and helping others with their own journey.
