Yoga teacher training (YTT) can be a powerful tool for self-reflection, which can be used to make the world a better place. This is because self-work and community work are always interrelated. When we do the work to heal and make ourselves better, we have a profound impact on our communities far and wide. YTT helped me confront my shadow side, find my inner strength and wisdom, and become a better advocate for a socially just world.
Yoga can be a powerful tool for healing. Stress, anxiety, and trauma—whether experienced every day or sporadically—impact our bodies. The symptoms manifest in many ways: as dis-regulated breathing, throat constriction, lack of presence, insomnia, migraines, heightened sensations, fatigue, aches and pains, and so on.
