I came to Drishtiq Yoga in Mason, Oh on a suggestion from a friend. Having been to numerous studios in Cincinnati, I can state without question that they are by far the best! Their caring attitude, coupled with their desire for everyone to succeed and grow through yoga, is superb.
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.
