One of my friends recently completed a week long yoga training. We talked about it when she was finished & she told me how much she loved it. She loved the training, she loved learning about yoga...and even more than that, she loved being surrounded by people who love yoga. She said it was like "yoga pixie dust". Everyone was kind & open & supportive. It was a wonderful experience & it was wonderful to be part of that kind of a group of people.
If you've never experienced it, the best example I can think of is in contrast: being part of a group of people who complain all day, talk about others behind their back & think that nothing is going work or get better. Sadly, most of us have had some kind experience with this example.
I've been teaching for over a decade now & so there's an abundance of yoga pixie dust in my life. Most of the people I know are covered in it, carry extra on them at all times & sprinkle it liberally wherever they go.
Ok - sounds ridiculous right? Or does it?
Well, I don't really know about the pixie dust, but I do know that my life changed when I started practicing & teaching yoga. Maybe I was sprinkled with pixie dust when I wasn't looking! I am now surrounded by people who support each other, encourage each other, believe in themselves & others. People who believe that life can be full of joy & abundance & that you can do anything you want.
You don't have to take a teacher training to experience this (although a teacher training does takes it to a whole other level).
Find the right studio for you & you'll find it.
How do you know it's the right studio? Look for pixie dust in the corners:)
