My experience as a Peru Yoga Teacher Training Student

 

Student Yoga Testimonial - Allegra

 

Back in May 2021, after feeling bored and stressed with my monotonous entertainment industry job, I fell down the Google rabbit hole of looking for South American 200 hr Yoga Teacher Trainings. At the time, it was more of a pipe dream than something I actually felt capable of achieving. I fell in love with SYI’s website, all of the information provided about each training inspired me to take my pipe dream seriously. On a whim I applied for the SYI scholarship for the Peru training just to “see what would happen” and, sure enough, I got accepted and found myself quitting the job I didn’t like and booking a one-way ticket to South America.

I was looking for a spiritual place where I could connect further with my own spirituality and deepen my yoga practice and that was exactly what I found. My YTT experience was far better and more life-changing than I ever imagined. I immediately fell in love with being nestled in Peru’s mountains, surrounded by nature’s magical essence and delicious vegan food. I gained so much knowledge about yoga throughout this training that I cannot wait to apply to be a yoga teacher and a leader. The training helped me strengthen my confidence, hone in my creativity, and gain strength and flexibility in my body (or rather, find the strength and flexibility that always existed).

I was so lucky that my group was just 12 students which helped us create such strong bonds and unique friendships. I loved getting to know people from all over the world through yoga. However, my biggest takeaway was not the daily meditation and yoga practice, but rather the yoga philosophy-inspired teachings. I learned how to be a better citizen of the world through a yogic lens, which is priceless.

One of my favorite memories from the training was Nichole’s creativity birthing lecture – it was eye-opening and really made me think about my own creative processes not just in regards to yoga but in all aspects of my life. Janani and Nichole were incredible guides and space holders. They knew how to teach us exactly what we needed to know in ways that made us think critically and kept us engaged. They kept the training energetic and interesting, even towards the end when we were all physically and mentally exhausted. After completing this training I feel confident to teach a 60-90 minute vinyasa or hatha yoga class at any studio. My goal for completing my 200hr YTT is to teach yoga while continuing on my journey as a film and television writer. I also would love to plan and host yoga retreats and perhaps one day lead a training myself.

Thank you again for this magical experience!
