Myths of Teacher Training

Myths of Teacher Training

There are many misconceptions surrounding Yoga & Pilates Teacher Training. We’ve set out to debunk the top 6 myths about enrolling in our teacher training program and shed some more light on the topic. Let the myth-busting begin.

MYTH #1: I’M NOT READY

“I’m worried that my practice isn’t good enough.”

Ah yes, that all too familiar voice. You know the one. That pesky inner critic that whispers repeatedly that you are not enough. Yoga and Pilates work beyond the physical practice, extending far off the mat. You may only make it to a class here and there, but what matters most is your desire to learn.

My Experience: 60 Days of Hot Yoga by Jenna Ptacek

A few months ago I was talking to a doctor and I told him that I had been really stressed out lately (more stressed than I had ever been); he mentioned that he did hot yoga to help with stress, so I decided to give it a shot.  I can’t begin to tell you how thankful I am that I did.  Shortly after attending a couple classes, I decided to do a 60-day challenge… this experience has been life changing.

“Life, at best, is stressful, and easy answers don’t always exist. But one of the best cures for all of life’s headaches—big and small—is yoga. When practiced regularly and correctly, yoga can improve your entire being. And when the physical body, the brain and the spirit are aligned and wholly healthy, life’s difficulties aren’t so overwhelming and answers aren’t so insurmountable to find.

Practicing yoga the right way is key to yielding optimal results, and the best way to know you’re doing yoga in its correct form is to get connected with a professional yoga studio like The Foundry.”

"At its most basic, my Bali experience was a wonderful vacation to a beautiful island. And that’s a good takeaway in and of itself. But this experience also changed me on a soul level – or maybe didn’t change me, but uncovered something in me I had forgotten was there. And that was priceless."
