Towards Certification – HoopYogini™ Teacher Training ~ Awaken Level

Beautiful BEing, you did IT – you showed up, breathed deep, made connections and opened yourself to new possibilities!

Acknowledge yourself for all you learned and all you shared during the in-person experience of the HoopYogini™ Teacher Training ~ Awaken Level.

Your presence made an impact and was needed in the supported circle of our training experience.

Thank you.

What’s next?

As you know, attending the in-person training was just the beginning.

You are currently in a space of developing a daily seated meditation and movement practice that will deepen your integration of the holistic components of HoopYogini™, as well as deepen your relationship with Self and Source.

From your dedicated personal practice, sincere self-inquiry and on-going study, you will become “influential” – in flow with your essence. Being in flow with your essence allows you to create a life of ease with healthy energetic boundaries, expansive possibilities, and deeply enriching relationships.

Being influential allows you to make a positive impact in your life and the lives of your students, thus affecting your home, your community and the planet.

So, like JC Penny’s reminds us – “It’s all inside.”

And, from the wisdom of Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois – “Do your practice and all is coming.”
