I am currently still doing my teacher training (TT) program (just started last month) and am having a harder time than I thought keeping up with my personal practice in the weeks in between the trainings. I get on a high when the TT group gets together for the weekend of training then come down after we aren't together. What are some ways I can continue on my practice without the encouragement and support of the TT?

It seems you have come to the right place. A yoga forum for teachers is a good way to network with your peers. Another way is by viewing video and reading. This creates a spark (motivation) to practice.

To read: //www.yoga-teacher-training.org/yoga-community/blog/

To View Videos: //www.yoga-teacher-training.org/category/videos/

There is also a overview to resources at: //www.yoga-teacher-training.org/yoga-community/

Lastly, the internet is the greatest resouce for antone who is studying to become a yoga teacher, as an adjunct to your yoga teacher training, and for your continuing education.

Yoga videos are free at the aura yoga video archive and that helps you save if you already spent a huge amount for your yoga instructor training course. One way to keep your motivation up is to teacher your family and friends between yoga teacher training sessions.

You need to be self motivated and if you are able to motivate your self then you don't need any help from yoga teachers, only you need to search for videos of yoga training and you will get benefited also to do things right, Just 1st complete your TT program and then try to motivate your self and start watching yoga videos.

Yogiinprocess- I hear you! I am currently working on my TT as well. Right now my schedule allows me to do (as already suggested) teach to family and friends whenever possible.(I just gave the gift of a special birthday yoga session to my group of girlfriends.) When my schedule requires many hours of car travel and work away from home I concentrate on 10-20 mindful minutes of breathing and stretching throughout the day, i.e. standing stretches and poses while my kettle heats up, etc.... I also choose to forego FB & most email for reading, watching yoga blogs, videos and texts to keep me motivated. Namaste'

Many good ideas here. Any method that generates a higher level of motivation is a good method for you. Each of us is different and what works for one may be slightly different for others. The bottom line is do what works for you.

To become a yoga teacher takes discipline. Practicing yoga alone takes discipline. This is much different than listening to your guru's detailed instruction. DVDs, web clips, and books are useful but the motivational force lies within the core of one's self. Too many yoga teachers are followers without a cause.
