Spirits Diary: Johanna's YTT Letter
" In the month of May I did the Yoga Teacher Training with Corinne Rosita Aulakh in Cahuita. It was a beautiful and enriching experience in so many ways, learning from Corinne as well as from the other students. Corinne is such a warm and kind teacher, sharing her knowledge in a generous and accessible way. She has a deep knowledge of yoga gained from many years of practice and time spent in India and has a way to share that knowledge with ease. With equal amounts of seriousness and laughter she was guiding us to the core of yoga in the peacefulness of Cahuita. Some mornings we walked down to the beach for morning practice in the rising sun while the waves were crashing in on the wild and empty playa grande. We meditated with the horses, had dance meditation in the garden of the hotel and many candlelit practices on the platform in the evenings with the jungle with all its soothing sounds surrounding us.
We were a small group of students and given lots of opportunity to practice teaching from early on in the course. Corinne created a safe space for us to share and learn from each other. Encouraging us to go deeper in our practice, living a yogic lifestyle to understand what it means to do yoga by practicing it in every aspect of our lives. Through lectures, asana practice, a lot of practice teaching and discussions about yoga philosophy she made us ready for being teachers of our own.
Thank you Corinne, Terry and all the amazing women sharing this experience with me! "
