I just started yoga teacher training. I am one week into the training and feel I have made a huge mistake. Yoga has always been my source of refuge and solace and now I am feeling anxious and full of anxiety. The reason I started the training was because my yoga practice suffered when six months ago I moved far away from any yoga studios. The fitness center where I live could not find a yoga teacher and I thought I will teach yoga. Now I realize I don't think I want to teach yoga I want to practice yoga. Can anyone give any advice.

Thank you all for responding to me. The feelings I am experiencing were certainly unexpected. The training is an intensive training 5 - 6 days a week over a 10 week period with an overwhelming amount of reading, homework, and classes. It's not fun and feels like a burden which is nothing I ever expected to feel associated with yoga.
