Blessings in unexpected places

Good quote today from Abraham (receive the daily e-mail here). Reminded me of where I'd been that seemed so in despair and horrible at the time and now it's led me to the open house party of Yoga Patch. Without being in the car accident, I probably wouldn't have discovered yoga and fallen in love with it so deeply, now sharing it as an instructor in a brand new studio right by my house.

During a Unity sermon I sat in a few years ago, the reverand once said "horrible" events in our lives are either to bless us in some way later or for us to be a blessing. Maybe both happened in this situation.

If you're in Kansas City, hope you can join us for one of the events this weekend.

"There will be a time, not so far from now, that you will look back on this phase of your life and instead of condemning it or beating up on it... Instead of blaming or guilting, you will feel appreciation for it, because you will understand that a renewed desire for life was born out of this time period that will bring you to physical heights that you could not have achieved without the contrast that gave birth to this desire."
--- Abraham

Swami Vishnu-devananda was the first in the West to develop a training program for yoga teachers. He did this not only with the vision to develop yoga professionals, but also to give sincere aspirants the skills of personal discipline and to develop messengers of peace. The Course is a profound, personal experience, based on the ancient gurukula teaching system, integrating the student's daily life into the yoga training. By the end of the intensive four-week course the student will possess a firm foundation for teaching others, in addition to strengthening his or her own yoga practice with self-discipline and awareness of the nature of body, mind and spirit. Upon graduation from the course, students receive a certificate of qualification. The program has seen the graduation of more than eleven thousand students over the last thirty years. Men and women come from all around the world take part in the training, which is given in English with simultaneous translation into European languages, as well as Hebrew, Japanese, Hindi, Tamil and Malayalam.


we developed a program that teaches you everything you need to know to teach yoga AND run a successful yoga business - and you can learn it from home, at your own pace.

I call it the "Yoga Teacher Training Camp" for Home Study Yoga Teacher Certification.
And with the praise I've received for the original camp-in-a-box, I've been inspired to create a full collection of home study courses for popular and important Yoga Teacher specialities, such as Restorative Yoga Teacher, Kid's Yoga Teacher, Chair Yoga Teacher, Pre-natal & Post-natal Yoga Teacher, Yoga Teacher Trainer (level II), Vinyasa Yoga, Meditation Teacher, Yoga Anatomy and more.
Equally important, I've developed courses and tools to help Yoga Teachers run successful Yoga Teacher businesses. After all, it's one thing to devote yourself to doing what you love (Yoga), but it's quite another to be able to support yourself comfortably and securely while doing it. You won't learn these skills at a typical Yoga Teacher Camp.
Whether you're an experienced Yoga Teacher needing to re-certify or a beginner looking to become a yoga teacher - you've come to the right place. Our Free Yoga Teacher Community will help you find what you're looking for.

All the time we find our daily schedules do not allow time for several hours a week to exercise at the neighborhood gym. An effective and inexpensive solution that will not cost an arm and a leg is to practice yoga at home. This does not mean you should jump straight into exercises without help or no knowledge of yoga. It is very important yoga be completed properly, if practiced incorrectly yoga can do more damage than good.I would recommend beginners take a few days of vacation and plan to attend a yoga ashram. Yoga retreats are a type of wellness ashram for yoga enthusiasts. This format is an excellent way to learn basic yoga techniques and proper positions. Ashrams or wellness yoga retreats also provide diet instruction, yoga massages, detoxification treatments and spiritual inspirations.A yoga ashram sanctuary will teach you the basic skills you need to apply yoga alone in a serene environment. This is truly the perfect way to open your mind while you absorb the skills needed to further your advancement, knowledge and application of yoga.With a visit to an ashram you will learn habits to facilitate the integration of a personal yoga retreat routine into your daily life. It also has never been easier to learn the process of practicing yoga in the privacy of your own home. There are over 2000 yoga titles available in several formats such as DVD, audio CD, hardcover book, and e-book. New do it yourself products like Seyoga Serenity Flow illustrated yoga towels and mats follow guided video instruction to help beginners learn quickly in the comfort of their home, office, or hotel room.
