    Yoga Living Project is proud to welcome back guest author and Cambio YTT graduate, Deepa Patel. This week, Deepa is here to discuss one of the golden rules of teacher training that will take you far: a beginner's mindset. Regardless of if you have been practicing for a decade or have never set foot on a mat, our state-of-the-art yoga teacher training program will meet you where you are at and build a foundation to get you where you want to go.

    As we gear up for our teacher training -- in which our 12 Week Intensive track will be offered ONLINE and/or in-person -- remember that at Cambio Yoga, our mission is accessibility, community and education and we've led 25 Yoga Teacher Trainings over the last decade which has prepared our team to take this this special journey with If  you!

We encourage you to listen and read as they both contain some different info so please enjoy and let us know what you think, in fact you will have the perfect opportunity this week as Austin will be holding a community satsang on February 28th, 2019 at 7pm both at Cambio Yoga and on Facebook live. The event is donation based but watching online doesn't cost you anything, but only those in person will have their chance to speak, share and ask questions.

  • 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.
