We epically combined a yoga vacation with the tail end of our 200 hour teacher training in India.
This brilliant move gave more bodies for our YTT train-ies to practice on. It also put them in the position of seeing exactly what goes down when you go on retreat. Guiding people in foreign places isn’t as easy as we make it look with all those Instagram filters.
Stuff comes up, inevitably so, but how you deal with that is part of the grace that is possible to obtain only through the practice of yoga. Being in the “hot seat” is how we learn. Training in India is like stepping into a fire that can never be lit or realized anywhere else. If you can handle the heat you can master the kitchen.
