Hi, Just a quick question. Is is advisable to write something personal about yourself in the yoga essay relevant to the topic for the teacher training exam. Looking forward to a reply.
The subject matter of the essay for the level 1 yoga teacher course is wide open. Feel free to write something personal about yourself in the yoga essay relevant to the topic of Yoga and health.
Yoga is a beautiful way of life, an art of righteous living or an integrated system for the benefit of the body, mind, emotial stability, and inner spirit. This art originated, and was perfected and practiced in India thousands of years ago. The references to yoga are available in 'Upanishads' and 'Puranas' composed by Indian Aryans in the later Vedic and post- Vedic period. The main credit for systematizing yoga goes to Patanjali who wrote 'Yoga Sutra', two thousand Years ago. He described the principles of the full eight fold yogic discipline. He composed the treatise in brief code words known as 'Sutras'. 'Yoga Sutra' is the most important basic text on Yoga. It is through this basic treatise that the essential message of yoga spread throughout the world.
Honestly speaking I don't have any idea if it is possible to write something personal about yourself in the yoga essay that is relevant to the topic for the teacher training exam. Most especially because I do not yet encounter the word yoga essay.
Let's review two points you mention.
1. Is it possible to write something personal about yourself in the essay that is relevant to the topic for the yoga teacher training exam process?
It's totally possible if you have an experience that is relevant to the essay subject. If you have a level 1 course, your essay can be about yoga and any health subject. If yoga helped your health, then Yes - you could add your own life experience to your essay for yoga certification.
2. "Most especially because I do not yet encounter the word yoga essay."
When you read your instructions - If an essay is not required, you don't have a level 1 course. There are yoga and meditation courses that don't require an essay. One example is the meditation course doesn't have an essay. There are other yoga teacher courses that don't ask for an essay too. Which course do you have?
