One of our 2014 200 hour yoga Teacher Training grads Mel wrote to us recently from Cambodia, where she is working as a yoga teaching volunteer, offering daily classes in a women’s centre. We thought we’d share it with you on the blog, as it really shows the incredible value of being of service to others… and is a great example of one of the many unexpected places a yoga teacher training may take you! I don’t think even Mel had any idea she would end up in Cambodia when she began this journey….
After falling in love at first Down-Dog with yoga, I quickly became passionate about learning more. Five years into my practice I decided to train as a teacher, but all the courses that appealed to me were spread over a year or more. That was a problem for me – since 1995 I’ve worked in the music business as a sound engineer touring with bands. I’m rarely anywhere for long, so being in one place several weekends a year was out of the question. That’s when Santosha came to the rescue!READ MORE
We asked one of our beautiful students, mid-wife Kerrie Adams, to share her experiences on the Santosha PPNCT. Since the training Kerrie has gone on to start her own business offering education, support and yoga service for mamas to be and new mamas. Giving back to the community – and making Santosha very proud! Read what Kerrie has to say here…
This March I attended the 300 hour Yoga Teacher Training with Santosha in incredible India. I went to the course with some sad circumstances, but the Team of Santosha was there for me I felt from day one until the last day… their support and love was like an ocean.
To all of those I have met, not met, loved, cried to and with, journeyed ardous times and joyous moments with – I want you to know that you have been a part of me peronally on some energetic level and ultimately you all form the essence of Santosha – for this I am truly, truly grateful for.
As I sit down to write this, it’s about 3 months since the East Java Retreat at Grajagan or ‘G-land’ as it is most commonly known amongst the surfing fraternity, and looking through the photos has been a beautiful trip down memory lane.READ MORE
