My experience as a Guatemala Yoga Student – Megan


Megan - SYI Student Story

Yoga Testimonial – Megan. Our Guatemala Yoga Teacher Training Alumni

This 200-hour YTT with School Yoga Institute was much more than a yoga certification. It was a journey of self-growth and transformation. I discovered that coming to my mat to practice is only a small piece of what yoga really is. It goes much deeper than that. It’s how we interact with others, how we talk to ourselves, how and what we eat, the thoughts that go through our heads, and how we’re connected with what’s around us. I’m walking away from my time on Lake Atitlan, Guatemala as a changed person–seeing the world with a new set of eyes. I’m a better version of myself from this experience.

I selected School Yoga Institute for many reasons–their sacred locations, the interactions I had while inquiring about the school, their philosophies about the practice. I am happy to say, the experience was better than I could have expected. Top-notch facilitators, beautiful surroundings, high-quality teachings, and a community of peers that I connected deeply with.

After absorbing so much information throughout the course, I feel ready to go out into the world and share my knowledge–as a caretaker of what yoga really is. I’m walking away with all the tools I need to help others along their journey, but it still feels like just the beginning. There’s so much more to learn. I’ve been given a sturdy foundation from SYI and now I’m excited to continue to grow and gain additional knowledge through teaching.

I feel confident to teach and lead. I want my students to have an experience that gives them empowerment in their abilities, makes them feel capable, and brings them to the present moment. Can I have even the smallest positive influence on people’s lives to make them a better version of themselves? That is my hope.

Thank you SYI for this unforgettable experience! I would highly recommend this training to anyone.
