Attending the Baptiste Journey into Power yoga teacher training was a huge accomplishment for me. Making the commitment to register was super exciting and the fact that I actually completed the rigorous training is something I’m really proud of, mostly because of my chronic fatigue. My CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome) was diagnosed about 6 years ago and since then I’ve been struggling with finding a cause for my tiredness and trying remedies to gain energy in all areas of my life. Power yoga has been a HUGE help over the years, making a positive difference in my life and recently propelling me onto this yoga teacher path. One thing I learned from this teacher training is that I actually DO have more energy than I realized. There’s no way I could have made it through the 15-17 hour days with challenging yoga practices and little sleep without tapping into my unrealized power. Training with Baron Baptiste is more than just learning about asanas or alignment. I discovered how to identify energy blocks and possibly uncovered the root causes of my chronic fatigue. Being back home in Port Angeles, where it’s gray and rainy right now, also made it clear that I definitely feel more energized in the SUN!! Well, it was a heart-opening week full of “aha” moments for sure. I’m grateful for the opportunity for this training and am motivated for more!!!
