I don’t expect to ever fully articulate the experience of my Level II and Level III Yoga Teacher Trainings at Shoshoni Mountain Ashram in Rollinsville, CO. Living for two weeks at a place where all moments of the day are devoted to the practice of yoga was deeply transformative for me, and I grew so much in those weeks.
The energy of this place blew me away! I was operating on less sleep and less food than I normally do–waking up at 4:30 to shower and meditate, and often not going to bed until 10 or later (I couldn’t put down Seat by the Fire by Sri Shambhavananda)–yet I felt fully energized and awake throughout the days of training. The trainings were extensive and well-organized, structured in a balanced way so that we had time to rest and absorb between Anatomy, Asana, Philosophy, Pranayama, Meditation, Chanting, and Practice Teaching.
