Become A Certified Yoga Teacher

Yoga has gained immense popularity over the years, and it's not just because of its physical benefits. Yoga is a holistic approach to life that improves not just our bodies but also our minds and spirits. With the increasing popularity of yoga, the demand for certified yoga teachers has also increased. Ekam Yoga Academy is here to fulfill this demand by providing online training programs for aspiring yoga teachers.#Yoga #yogaclasses #yogastudio #yogacenter #yogaathome #Yoga


Recommendations for a yoga/stretching/gentle workout channel on Youtube?

I would like to explore starting a habit of gentle movement inside at home. I have a currently undiagnosed condition that is causing swelling and mild pain in my knees, so I do have some limitations physically. Mentally and emotionally I find intentional exercise very difficult because it makes me focus on my body which I prefer to dissociate from. I have been doing body-based and somatic therapy for nearly a year now, though, and some of the panic when I connect to my body is subsiding, so I think it is a good time to start a routine like this. I don't know where to start, though, and thought I would ask if anyone has a recommendation. Thank you in advance!

Today I’ve been trying to nurture my tired soul and spirit; so when I came across this thought right now to calm me down , I kinda said “yeah, today’s been like that”. 😔
I treated my kids to some icecream after school, I’ll try to #Yoga but if not, I’ll make my peace.

Hope you find your peace today. ☮️✌🏼🕊🙏🏼

WHAT GIVES, Anyway? 🤷🏻‍♀️

So my 14 year old smart ass boy tells me to not give him lectures on interpersonal relationships. 🤭
This poster is what I came up with and sent it to him; As hard as it is…🥹 I’m not up to it today 🫥.

Trying out a new type of #Yoga content

It's taken me ages to build up the courage but I finally did it. I made my first video on yoga and chronic pain :) . I made a voice over on how I use yoga as a tool to manage my pain. It isn't a silver bullet but it helps. I have so much more #Spoonie content planned. I'm excited, but I need to pace myself from burning out. I am recently recovering from a 4 week #flare .

Feeling a little inspired

Sometimes on my really good days I feel like creating yoga content to help the spoonie community with managing chronic pain. Like just some breathing exercises I do when I am feeling nauseas from meds. I wonder if the spoonie community would enjoy that or hate that? Since we are always getting told to "try yoga". It isn't a silver bullet, but it helps a tiny bit. #Yoga

Healing is hard work!
There are endless days that no one sees. Days where the tears flow like rivers from so deep from the places you’d long forgotten even existed.
💧Cry, let your tears flow freely!

Days where you don’t even have the ability or the wherewithal to get out of bed but you have people you love depending on just that.
🏋🏼‍♀️ Get up, and just take those next step.

There are days that you know you’ve got nothing. I’m talking about nothing: nada, zip, zilch! You’ve depleted yourself to your bones.
🌻 Rest, like your life depends on it.

Friend, it’s not our job to wear ourselves out or to hustle for our worthiness. The only thing we do, when we are ready, is to own our truth then give ourselves the permission and the compassion to heal. ☀️

You do not owe anyone an explanation of how you heal! It’s not a one size fits all!

I believe in different healing modalities to engage my body to release trauma. I believe the body keeps the score. So I need to move. You choose whatever works for you!

Some of mine include backpacking 🎒 , hiking 🥾 , and yoga 🧘🏼‍♀️ What people see on social media are the results of my journey. What they do not see on social media is what it took and what it cost me to get here!

The bottom line is this: YOU ARE WORTH WHATEVER IT TAKES TO DO THE WORK OF HEALING. It’ll be messy. It’ll take grit. Rest. But it is possible!

I’m rooting for you!
