Yoga Teacher Training is a big investment – we get it. But that is exactly what it is – an investment. Once you finish Kodawari’s Teacher Training, it’s yours. It will not break down after 2 years, fray after multiple uses, or dissipate. In fact, this foundation of knowledge on how to refine your body and mind is yours forever. Here’s the list of the top 10 impacts that people who have taken our yoga teacher training say:

  • Get Stronger – Physically, Emotionally
    Teacher training is about becoming the ultimate student. Pretty much every graduate says some version of, “I learned so much about the practice and making the practice work for my body. Teacher training also enabled me to find extraordinary freedom and strength off of my mat by giving me the tools to let go of ego and attachment and to be of service to the things that matter most to ME.”
  • Step Out of Your Comfort Zone
    One of the biggest benefits you will received from Teacher Training is learning how to notice fear and when it was blocks you from connecting with other people. You will find blocks that you may not have known were there and inside the training you will gather the tools to work on removing the obstacles preventing you from becoming the best version of yourself.

  • Laugh, Cry, Sweat
    Teacher Training is intense! You are physically exhausted at the end, and yet emotionally and spiritually charged! There are moments when you may uncontrollably cry or outrageously laugh, but it happens because you are emptying your metaphorical bowl for something new, awesome and sweet.
  • Find Your Voice
    Teacher training teaches you HOW to speak your truth with confidence and care (Non-violent Communication by Marshal Rosenberg is a core tenet and foundational book for our training). Instead of constantly worrying about the reactions, needs, judgment, and preferences of others, learn to confidently speak in a thoughtful and caring way.
  • New Flames, Old Flames – Get Your Priorities in Line
    Become part of the deep core community at Kodawari. It’s high vibe tribe…knowing that you are a part of a group – a kula or sangha – provides a bedrock of friends in your life.
  • Become the Rock
    Teacher Training can give you a fresh start/new perspective on your life. You will be able to reevaluate the difficulties and challenges in your life while learn how to use yoga to help yourself AND others.
  • Get it done. Start the journey.
    There will always be a reason not to do it. There will always be a reason why it might not work with your schedule.  The time is now for growth and this is the first step. If goals are dreams with deadlines, the time is now…if you’ve been thinking about it, do teacher training – you won’t regret it.

  • Acquire Tools to Overcome Difficult Times
    Steady seas never made a skilled sailor.
    If yoga has already helped you navigate difficult times and you not only want to learn more but are compelled to share the benefits with everyone. I (Annette) can share that watching and holding space for transformation in others gives me a meaningful purpose and a sense of satisfaction every day and the practice of yoga as a life tool continues to deepen and unfold for me – I believe that the same can and will happen for you.
  • Learn Why Yoga Feels So Good
    Committing to teacher training was an easy decision for me. I quickly fell in love with the practice late in life, and how it was much more than simply a work-out. My mind, spirit, and body all feel so much better after practice. I knew that there had to be much more than what I could read in a book or learn from a few smart sounding quotes from a teacher during class. YTT (yoga teacher training) was the mechanism for me to dive deep into where yoga came from, explore the theory of how it works, and take my practice to the next level.
  • Get Full (On Life)
    Yoga makes me a better human. I wanted to learn the way of gifting this boost of life to others. While this isn’t the only way to help, it’s a dang good one!!!
