When I decided to do my TTC I was about 4 months into yoga, to me yoga was a 100% match and I simply wanted to learn more about yoga. Because I didn’t know much about yoga I went back to my very first yoga studio which I believed was a good one. Turned out to be a really shitty one. I didn’t vibe with my teacher for many reasons, he wasn’t dedicated to yoga, he didn’t teach techniques and he didn’t even bring up the anatomy (he just referred to a book I should buy) etc. I was really mad at him and I felt like a fool. However, this might be the best yoga experience I’ve had because I gained so much passion and understanding for what type of yoga I wanted to practice. I learned everything I wanted through all the things he lacked.
Prior to my TTC I was working closely with an amazing teacher for three months and she thaught me a lot about yoga postures and the practice. Even though the TTC was bad I had so much inspiration from my previous teacher so I was firmly comitted to doing yoga. Since my TTC in February I’ve read books to deepen my knowledge about yoga, anatomy, ayurveda and much more. I’ve also started writing my own personal yoga book with things I’ve learned and how I want to practice and teach. I find myself developing my own branch of yoga and what it means to me.
I did have a nightmare TTC but I beleive it sparked my true passion for yoga and brought me on a unique path. Though I haven’t started teaching officially yet because I want to deepen my practice and become a good qualified yogi. As of now im not sure if I should teach or prepare more. I feel like I want more knowledge to start teaching, but I also know that teaching will provide more knowledge. What would you guys say is a good level to start teaching from?
