I graduated from the Dayton method teacher training program in summer 2008. My friend Laura Steiner who has been a role model for me was teaching at Yoga Tribe and she encouraged me to do the program. Going through the Teacher Training has changed me on deep levels. I used to have very low self confidence and while training we had to do 3 full hours of yoga per day. That alone changed the way I looked at myself. If I could do that I could do anything!! On the physical level: taking part of such an intensive training forced me to adopt a new lifestyle consisting of practicing yoga 6 days a week, better sleeping and eating habits.

After making that healthy shift I was able to keep it with me till today. There were 12 teacher trainers in my group and I am so grateful to have met and become close to these great people. Being a smaller group we all took advantage of getting really close to senior instructor Jason Wilkerson and learned so much from his own experiences. Jason is a very kind and meticulous trainer who will support and encourage you with lots of compassion but he will also make sure that you advance to your highest potential. Posture clinics were rough at first, as I was so frightened of public speaking but being in a small group we got to practice our dialogue in front of each other more frequently so I quickly became very comfortable and started enjoying the learning process intensely. Spending so much time everyday in such a positive environment as our yoga room has really helped me transform my life and putting so much devotion into my yoga practice has healed my body from the inside out and I am now 30 pounds lighter and healthier than I have been in many years.
