First aid kit for a month of yoga in India

First aid kit for a month of yoga in India

My training | Monday 1st April 2019

Since I came back from India a few people have approached me asking what I packed for my trip. I came prepared. On the facebook group Sampoorna created a few weeks before the trip some students where boasting about how they managed to only pack a cabin luggage for a month abroad. Personally I had an entire cabin luggage for my first aid kit (which challenges what I consider as first aid, I know). I’m not saying that it was needed - I ended up using only half of the stuff I came with - but I also provided medication to quite a few of my fellow students. I guess the right answer sits somewhere in the middle - balance, here you are again! I s...

YTT: Final week

YTT: Final week

It’s 7am on Tuesday and I feel like I’m having a lie in. Almost all the students have left Sampoorna, only a few who are travelling before heading back home are attending the daily drop in classes. It’s pretty obvious that we’re having a hard time to let go. I felt that the energy during the last week of the training was really different. Although most of us were anxious with regards to the final test, the overall vibe was quite peaceful. We were focused and we were vibrating in unison.

YTT: week 2

YTT: week 2

Week two is ending today and I can’t believe next week will be the final one of this yoga teacher training. I feel like I’m just at the beginning of this journey and I want to learn more and more. Although I think I also need some time to process all the food for thoughts we’ve been fed with, and get some time to reflect and experience it too. Week 2 has been different from week one. We now know each other way better and we’re also quite settled in our routine: wake up at 6am, asana practice ...

YTT: week 1

YTT: week 1

It’s the end of the first week of my 200h Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga teacher training and it’s been quite an intense one. Three mornings this week we’ve had a 2h ashtanga practice led by our ashtanga teacher Martin Sittek, from 6:30am to 8:30am, and let me tell you that this is hard. Ashtanga itself is quite a strong and difficult practice but if you add the early morning start, the temperature, the mosqu...

First days in India

I’m in India. This is incredible. I had never been to India before so I asked people around before going. They all told me it would be both extraordinary and harsh. I’ve only spent a week in Goa and I already understand why. I’m staying at Agonda, a sm...

YTT: Sampoorna yoga

When I discovered yoga two years an a half ago now, I would have never thought that today I'd be so excited to do a yoga teacher training. I...
