Yoga, Wine & Travel – Page 13 – a Travel & Yoga Blog

This is the time of year when people think “shit, it’s December already?” This is where I found myself at 1 a.m last night. 2014 was a difficult year for me, and I thought it would be important to remember that 2015 was not half bad; in fact, it was pretty darn awesome. It reminded me of one of the niyamas from the eight limbs of yoga: Samtosha, or contentment. Often we hope for a particular result to ensue from our actions, and we are just as often disappointed.

Morocco has been on my travel radar (let’s just call it the “t-radar” from now on) for a while now, after hearing great things about it from several friends who have visited over the past few years. So when the chance to step foot on the African continent for the first time in my life came up, it’s no surprise that I jumped on that opportunity like a subway rat on a slice of pizza.

Yoga is a light, which once lit, will never dim. The better your practice, the brighter the flame. – B.K.S.

Yoga teacher training is a big time and financial commitment, regardless of whether you’re enrolling in an intensive three to four-week program or a part-time program where classes are spread out over a few months, so I thought it would

Photo from the Yoga Garden After four long, incredible, exhausting, challenging and wonderful weeks, I graduated from a RYT 200 program! A few weeks ago, I shared some thoughts on the experience midway into the course, and wanted to share some factors I considered and pondered over when I was trying to choose the right YTT program for me.
