My plans changed – Yoga Teacher Training in Varkala, India


Hi guys! It’s Justyna and welcome
to my channel Reborn in India My plans have changed… I have just started
a 4-week teachers yoga course, long story short… long story short I was chilling in Varkala for a week before I decided to stay there for another month I was hanging out in the restaurants,
enjoying the food, enjoying the coffee interacting with people, I met a lot of
amazing and inspiring people there I enjoyed the sea, I enjoyed the perfect weather,
I explored the local town and the local beach and finally the decision to start 4-week
yoga teacher’s course was made I gave up on travelling in another
southern state of India Tamil Nadu to become a certified yoga teacher in Varkala only one life let me show you around the neighborhood that
was going to be my home for the next 4 weeks this is the way from my room to the
yoga center where we had our meals and there are also some more rooms to stay I stayed in a simple room with a bathroom
and the balcony Anoop, the organizer and the owner of the school
gave us the study materials on the first day and showed us around The main yoga hall was at the rooftop
with the sea view I was about to practice yoga
every day with this gorgeous view This is Mr Sanatana, teacher
Nice to meet you I was also going to share healthy meals
and the experience, the yoga experience with a camera group of like-minded
people from different parts of the world And I can already tell you
that this was the best time during my whole journey consider
the state of my mind so like I said, tomorrow I’m starting a teacher’s yoga course, 28 days I’m very excited about how
it’s gonna be and curious how I’ll manage all the schedule
6:00 a.m. wake-up 10:00 p.m. going to bed, lights out almost all day class, but I feel
it was a good decision very spontaneous decision, but I am
in a place where I need this kind of mental and physical detox and now I’m going to use the very last
chance to go to the se today oh my god, son many people on the beach I was documenting the whole yoga
experience and I’m going to put it together in kind of a diary, my yoga
teacher’s course diary, but to give you like a little bit of background about
where I was at and why it was perfect time to do it, I’ll share part of it now Today is Monday, January the 2nd 2017 and
today is the 1st day of my yoga teacher’s course I am already after the first class,
we started the day at 6:00 a.m. 6:30 – meditation, 7:00 – asana practice
and I just had a breakfast I love the food, the taste, it’s so good, I’m so
happy eating fresh vegetables and fruits oh it’s delici I’ve been here for five months now
before coming here I was trying to live an active and healthy lifestyle, as
active and as healthy as possible I used to run a lot I used to do yoga,
do some workouts… yeah I was trying my lifestyle has changed drastically
since I came to India I started to eat only Indian food
lots of flour, bread Indian breads lots of butter and mostly sugar I always had some kind of excuse
I was living with an Indian family which they used to feed me, I couldn’t say no
I used to drink a lot of Indian tea – chai It’s very sweet and I love it
yeah and it’s been like that for months And I stopped being active, physically active
like totally, I don’t run I went for a run only once during last five months
I stopped doing yoga which I used to do in Poland and today I’m starting, I already started
and I’ll be doing yoga every single day on the rooftop we have yoga class
so we can hear the sounds of the sea and we can see the sea I know it’s gonna be a good experience
I’m in a very nice chilled out place by the beach apart from that a yoga teacher’s course was
always my dream. I had been practicing yoga for ten years at that time and my
whole the spiritual experience in India was definitely taking me in that direction
as well. It was exactly what I was supposed to do at that time
I have no doubts about it You can probably already guess that
I wasn’t vlogging on the regular basis during the course. There will be just a
couple of videos from Varkala and I hope to put them together as soon as possible
Also let me know if you’re interested in more detailed information about the
course or my yoga journey and yeah Don’t forget to like and subscribe and I will
see you in the next episode, bye! Namaste I’ve started to come to the beach
to take advantage of being by the beach and I just go for the short swim in the sea yesterday and I was here before
breakfast for… to go to the sea I saw something amazing and I’m pretty sure
I was the only one to witness it and it was like a group of small silver fish
which they were like jumping above the level of water for a while like they
were above the water and jumping above it silver silver fish
