Hi Everyone,

I have to admit when I posted all those questions I never figured anyone would answer me. You all gave me good information and I'll look through the shopping cart for a yoga training course that fits my needs over the long haul. Like when Jeanne mentioned, "I care deeply for my students and wanted to make sure I was well trained to help them and their various needs."

That hit home because my mind has always been focused on the next rep or set. Your feedback from all of you has made me like rethink my attitude about training to become a yoga instructor. i just wanted the fastest program possible and now I realize that would have been a mistake.

Like I just thought I could practice about 30-40 postures and let it rip. One company promised a diploma without showing them anything. I could't see how anyone could get hurt doing yoga but I went through this forum and the connected blogs. Like suddenly I felt really embarrassed about my post, but those were my questions. And my questions were from the heart but maybe i should have someone over my shoulder before I hit the submit button.

Many thanks to every teacher who has taken time out of her or his day to answer questions from people like me. I guess, I should start from the beginning and call in to Aura today. Like I have been through their shopping cart sooo many times but feel that maybe I should get the intro course and the level 1 so that i learn correctly. I know thats not required but the club owner said to go for it.

And like Tai pointed out - its not my dime. The club is paying for training me to be a yoga instructor, as a continuing education deduction, so I best make the move before they change their minds. After losing my full time job - Yoga could lead to a new line of work that I didn't see coming.

Last of all, Tomako was right I could have learned to be a gun smith, computer programmer, or any other job with the next to nothing course. Thanks - that led me to reseach more.
