What Makes You Happy

Throughout my life I have always lived by the motto ‘do what makes you happy’.

It was something my parents said to me when I was 18 and choosing which degree to take for University, and it has stuck with me and served me well. Consequently, I have had a few different careers, lived in a number of cities, and taken a few long career breaks to pursue my passion for travel and experiencing new cultures.

Have You Ever Wondered What If…

Have you ever wondered what you would do if you could reset, would you change anything?

I am 42, mother of 2 and full-time accountant. And some days it works beautifully, but most of the time it is pretty full on, I wish for less stress, a healthier balance and more quality time for me and the family……

So, at the end of 2017 I started to think about some of the things that made me (and my family) happy, and I thought what if?

What if I could find something that helped me balance my stress and health (back pain, tiredness, PMT)?

What if I could find something that I may be able to use for a new career?

What if I find something I am passionate about and would make me jump out of bed for work!!

So, I just did it and in Jan 2018 I joined the teacher training at Yogafurie, not knowing where it would take me but excited to see……

10 questions to ask about a Yoga Teacher Training Course to choose the right one for you

It’s exciting!

A Yoga Teacher Training course is an amazing journey. The group you find yourself in will contain people from all walks of life, with widely different opinions and attitudes, all brought together by a love of Yoga and Hot Yoga. When you first decide to train as a teacher then you can get swept up in the excitement. There are lots of courses available, and they all sound great.

Studios generally design their own courses. There is no central body defining the syllabus, which means that the quality and content of courses can vary enormously. But in the heat of the moment, it’s easy to miss the tell-tale signs that separate the best courses courses from the rest.

This blog gives you a few simple questions to ask, that can help you balance your decision when choosing the right Yoga Teacher Training course for you.

Sinead decided to become a Hot Yoga Teacher…Instead of a Badass Ninja Spy

Read Futher to Discover Sinead’s Journey deciding to become a Hot Yoga Teacher

yoga teacher

As a teen I either wanted to become a Badass Ninja Spy (like in the Playstation Game Metal Gear Solid and with fighting skills like Enter the Dragon) or a Yoga Teacher. Seriously. And to be completely honest, I wanted to be a badass spy more. These choices came about ever since I started Martial Arts in my childhood and Yoga in my teen years. As time moved on, I found that I really loved to share new Yoga sequences with my friends and to learn more about each person’s experience of Yoga. The idea to become a Hot Yoga Teacher came a little later, when I realised how much good it did for me and for others.

Why Teach Yoga? One of our Trainees Jodie shares her story

Teach Yoga
Our teacher trainee Jodie teaches her assessment. August 2016.

I started practicing yoga as a way to stretch and strengthen parts of my body after training with my running club. I am definitely not naturally flexible or supple so I’d happily set myself up in the corner with all of my props to help me find comfort in the poses during a class.
