Receiving the call to teach

There are many reasons why we get the calling to be a teacher. My calling came one morning when I found myself.

It all started almost 16 years ago, in the year 2000. I was in a happy relationship, surrounded by wonderful family and friends, but I felt there was something missing from me. Not in the sense that I didn’t have it, but rather I felt that there was something wonderful hidden inside of me that I had no idea how to locate. I felt that there must be more to life and more to me that just having fun with friends, succeeding in my job or attending a religious institution. Yoga, I thought, yoga will show me what I need to find. I was not disappointed.

My first yoga experience was a lunchtime Pilates class. I showed up in my gym uniform with sneakers laced tightly. Imagine my surprise when I realized I’d need to go barefoot and then I found out that I was not in a yoga class (I thought Pilates was a type of yoga). The class was nice enough but it did not feel like it was my thing. The next day, I attended a class that was actually titled “Yoga” and I found my home. Since that first class I knew that this practice was for me. As I continued with my yoga practice I began to see interesting changes. One day I went up into a handstand and noticed that my mind was completely empty of thought. That experience lasted a moment but it changed everything. If my mind could be quiet for a split second, then perhaps with practice it could be quiet for longer!

Years went by. I practiced yoga regularly but didn’t feel the urge to teach because I was not ready to take on the responsibility of Teacher. In addition to yoga, I studied Energy Healing, Meditation, Reiki, Crystal Healing and other spiritual and metaphysical modalities. As I delved deeper into my studies, I learned about who I am, what I am, and I found that inner light for which I had been searching for so many years. And then I knew, the time had come for me to share my love of yoga. Now, after all these years, I was ready to take on the title of Teacher.
