The study of yoga

The second weekend of study for the advanced yoga teacher certification I am pursuing is coming up.  I am excited about it, as I was about the first weekend.  I found that I was really disappointed after the weekend last time.  But as I have digested the experience and I have done the assigned homework, I have benefited a great deal from having attended.

I wonder about prolonged study.  When I went through university at UGA and got my degree in English Literature, I remember thinking it was a formal system to study something over a long period of time and get a piece of paper that says that I did.  I learned many things along the way; but what was I supposed to learn?  Did it relate to what I wound up learning?

I find myself wondering these same things as I pursue this study of yoga.  Am I getting the point?  Am I growing as a yoga teacher? 

In some ways, I think formal education is a way to take money from people and give them some letters behind their names.  In other ways, I see the value of it.  I think it is what we make of it.  If I really show up and learn about yoga, I will grow as a yoga teacher.  But if I just pay the money and go to class, I will just be certified.  I guess it is my effort that makes the difference.

No doubt, yoga is so good for the health of the human body. There are different types of the yoga but it totally depends on you which type you like most or you feel comfortable. I also do yoga so that I remain fit and healthy.
