Please know, you can never confidently say that you’re fully prepared for a yoga training course, no matter how thorough you may be. No one can tell you what lies ahead, or how you’d feel when you get into the class for the first time.
When deciding to embark on such a journey, please keep in mind that all you can possibly do is your best.
As Lord Krishna preaches in Bhagavad Gita, you must be prepared to renounce the fruits of your actions, implying that just do your best, give yourself entirely to the present moment, and don’t worry about the results. Enjoy the journey.
Always remember your reasons behind practising yoga and why you might want to teach it to others. Your intentions behind learning yoga would lay a solid foundation for you to build your practice on. It’s something that you can always come back to if the going gets a little overwhelming or tough later.
However, please know that your reasons for learning yoga might also change over a period of time. You might start out with the intention of teaching others, but halfway into the program, you might discover that it’s not something for you.
Vice versa can also happen: you might start out with the idea of learning yoga just for yourself, not having the courage to stand up in front of a class and teach others, but see that changing as you go on.
It’s very important that you learn and study yoga for yourself, regardless of whether you’re keen on teaching it afterwards or not. So, even if you opt for some yoga teacher training course, your first priority should always be to absorb the teachings and use them in your own life first. It’s only after you fully embody something and experience it firsthand that you can share it genuinely with others.
Once you have your expectations and intentions sorted, no matter where you learn yoga in India, from Mysore or somewhere else, you’d always find yourself on the right path.
