Om My God! Why Is This So Hard?

The more I think about taking part in a yoga teacher training program, the more excited I get. When I tell my friends about it, they all say I would make a great teacher. Even my husband thinks so. I’m not sure I want to become a teacher but I definitely would like to learn a lot more about yoga and to deepen my practice.

However, I wasn’t expecting it to be so challening to find a freaking program!

I like to support local businesses and, thankfully enough, there is a local studio that is offering a program next month. I can walk to the studio if I wanted to. But, they meet on Wednesday evenings and my husband travels during the week. I would have to pay $50 every week for a babysitter and the program is over $3k!

There was another program that I had heard about. I checked out the studio. I thought it was nice. They were suppose to have an open house last week but we were hit with a huge snow storm and it was postponed until this week. And the program starts next week. I haven’t even met the director of the studio. And I don’t like feeling like I am pressured to make a fast decision. Plus, as of last week, they only had 5 spots available.  The final straw is that their classes start at 9:15 am and I would be so stressed dropping my kids at school, rushing back home and driving 20 minutes to make it to class.

I spoke with a friend about this.  She said I just haven’t found the right program. No duh! But I want to. Now. Yesterday!

On Friday, an acquaintance told me about a studio that I never knew existed. I googled the studio and found out that they were hosting a q & a for their yoga teacher training program on Saturday. I felt it was fate. I was so excited to check it out.

The teacher was nice but it was not for me. I felt like I was working out at a nursing home. The yoga, Hatha, was a lot of stretching. I just wanted to scream. I felt obligated to say for the q & a. I was the only person there! They have 11 people already signed up so clearly there are people who are drawn to this studio. Unfortunately, I am not one of them.

I know I will find a studio and a great program. I know it will all work out. The good thing is that there are many programs that seem to be popping up. There are at least two other studios that I need to check out.

I am fully aware how lucky and blessed I am to have this “problem.” Just so you know, I do have a lot of serious issues going on in my life. This is serving as a nice distraction from my other shit.
