An Introduction to our Yogi of April 2018 who completed her 200hr Yoga Teacher Training course in March :)
Our yogi of the month posts give you an insight into the experiences that past students have had at our bubble in Spain and advice on how to approach your yoga training.
Name: Michelle Rowsell
Favorite Yoga Pose: Garudasana, Urdva Dhanurasana, Ardha Matsyendrasana… Don’t make me choose!
Least Favorite Yoga Pose: Garbha Pindasana… Yogis look super chill when they nail this pose but I still struggle to find any space to fit my arms through!
Where are you from and what do you do back home?
I’ve moved around a fair bit but I’m a singer songwriter originally from Jersey Channel Islands. In 2014 I released my debut album Jersey Girl before moving to Split, Croatia and you can now find me playing regularly on the Dalmatian coast.
How would you describe your experience at The Yoga Bubble?
It felt like a total reset for me. I told myself that I would surrender to the process, knowing that it would be intense but that there was nowhere else I needed to be. I found the experience invaluable and inspiring. All the teachers were fantastic, with a good sense of humour, full of passion and enthusiasm.
What advice would you give students thinking about doing the yoga teacher training course?
Truth be told, I stood in my own way for a while… I told myself that I wanted to go on a course that would take a year rather than a month-long intensive. I guess I thought that it held more value because I wasn't sure you could cram all the information into that timeframe. I have completely changed my mind on this. I think there is just as much value, if not more, when you go and immerse yourself in the practice for a month as opposed to fitting it around your work life. If you’re thinking about booking, just DO IT! I promise that the experience will not disappoint! You’ll walk away confident in your practice with a sound knowledge of anatomy, inspired to teach.
What are you next steps?!
I have reached out to a local studio which has proved positive and I hope to become a regular teacher here in Split in the near future.
