background_emilyfb10-3-16 Started yoga teacher training last month at The Ashram. Had to take a weekend Raja Course on 9-17-16 thru 9-18-16 as a prerequisite. I was in a major funk because my listing wasn’t selling and it totally got me out of it after the weekend. Was taught how to meditate (transcendental meditation). It’s not official TM, but the owner basically teaches the techniques. It really works. Figured I’d learn how to rattle off the dialogue and the correct posture forms, but it’s so much more! Started reading The Heart of Yoga and I have a hunch that this is exactly what I needed in this phase of my life.
