What Happens Next? Reflections After A Yoga Teacher Training

After her graduation in Summer 2021, we caught up with Yogafurie teacher Ella to see how the training got her to where she is now.

“Teaching yoga has been revealing in so many ways.  Physically, mentally, emotionally, energetically.  One important thing I’ve learnt, is to ‘just start.’ 

The truth is, if you really want to learn something – teach it.”

A Life-Changing Yoga Teacher Training

Clinical support specialist for an orthopaedic robotic surgery, Seana had already completed a YTT before she joined Yogafurie, read on to hear her story.

“The key take away from the course has been to find balance and start to create a life that I have chosen,  as opposed to one that I stumbled into.
This was the first step in a journey that has been so entirely beneficial to me.”

Layla's Empowering Journey

Volunteering and looking for ways to add meaning to her life, Layla found what she was looking for when she discovered the Yoga Teacher Training.

“I was overwhelmed with emotions, all of which were good. I felt it was a new, fresh start and although I could tell it would be a challenge I knew this course would arm me with science, philosophy and practise elements which I didn’t see available anywhere else.”

Finance Director Katie's Yogafurie Teach Training Story

Prior to taking her 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training, Katie was balancing a full on full time job, a family and a dog and a horse. Here she shares about the value in finding the time to study with Yogafurie.

“I was a bit concerned about how I’d fit everything in, but it really felt like it was the next natural step in my journey through life. Personally, I feel like there’s never a perfect time to do things in life, and it’s better to listen to your inner voice for guidance and work out the rest on the way!”
