  • The Path Leads Inward – Why I Love Teaching Yoga Teachers by Suzanne Mariska

    Suzanne teaching YTT

    "When the program was over, I was on my own with my newly earned certificate (and very green teaching skills).  Teaching a class on my own was a sink or swim situation, and I did a lot of sinking as I tried to figure out how to actually apply what I had learned without any guidance.   Fortunately, I was determined enough to keep venturing into the water. I started teaching at Cambio in 2009, and here I received an amazing level of support and mentorship from many people in this teaching community.  I honed my skills in sequencing, adjusting, language, and I over time I learned to teach with confidence and grace."

    Extended YTT Co-Coordinator and Senior Teacher, Suzanne Mariska shares her experience in becoming a yoga teacher and how it inspires her in leading incoming trainees as they take their first steps on this journey. Continue reading Suzanne's unique experiences and this practice that leads you inward.

  • YLP Podcast Episode # 5 Yoga for Vets with Jason Smiley

    A talk with Jason Smiley about PTSD, music, yoga, tattoos and life.  Editor's note:
    When I asked if there is a cure for PTSD and Jason said no and would like to correct that.  "There is no single thing that cures it.  I gave an answer about a pie and how one should investigate all the different therapies.  Although one never gets rid of the actual trauma, technically you can get rid of the stress disorder.  I think I was also answering from the perspective of a patient in the VA health care system, where it is unlikely that you will get rid of either.  Anyway through various modalities of therapy it is technically possible to rid oneself on the stress disorder, not the actual traumatic event.  That part never goes away."

    This week guest writer and Cambio instructor Renee Nicole Rudolph shares her words on our recent visit from one of our favorite yoga teachers.

    On Shanti Shanti's Cold Depression Workshop from Friday, July 15

     

    On Friday, I attended the Overcoming Cold Depression: Penetrate the Silence of the Soul Workshop, presented by Dr. Shanti Shanti Kaur Khalsa and hosted at Cambio Yoga and what an honor it was. For years I suffered from cold depression. I was tired, angry, frustrated, and the level of my anxiety was indescribable. Sure, I knew I was probably depressed and sure, I really thought anxiety was to be expected--better get used to it I often told myself.
