Can Continuing Ed Be Bliss by Marlene Gast

For me, meeting Continuing Ed standards has always turned out to be, not a chore, but a wonderful indulgence. I would say, in fact, Continuing Ed = Bliss.

As a studio owner living 2,000 miles from PA, I admit to never relishing the task of finding subs for my classes, coverage for the studio phone, and an affordable airline ticket to Pennsylvania. Yet once I have the “excuse” of taking a program to be in Current Standing, for serving as a Svaroopa® yoga teacher, I find that all of the potential obstacles resolve, and I am full of joy at the prospect of reviving skills and opening deeper in body and mind — and more.

It turns out that the “requirement” gives me the support I need to do what I deeply want to do: Take more training, recover from inevitable drift away from protocols, and receive for myself what I offer to students and clients — reliable opening of my spine, releasing layers of tension, immersing in the Bliss of Being. I am not alone in this experience.

Last month, during the legendary East Coast winter, Rob Gold flew from Maui to PA for Embodyment® Yoga Therapy, specifically to return to Current Standing.  Look for his full account of his increase in skill, as well as the “more” of yoga, in the SATYA! E-Letter coming to you next week. Rob was motivated by his expectation of receiving the “more” of yoga — and once again, he found the experience of a Svaroopa® yoga teacher training program to be life-changing.
