 Kate’s Blog – My first Intensive Yoga teacher Training Course

After returning from the Intensive yoga Teacher Training Course I am reflecting on what an amazing experience it was.

We met in the airport and everyone was lovely, we struck up a rapport straight away and got the craic going. The flight flew in – no pun intended! Getting off the plane we were greeted with pure blue skies and a lovely warm evening. We were collected by Dan and Billy and taken to Tara’s Retreat where our course was being held.

The first thing you see when you arrive at Tara’s Retreat is the lilac gate. Stepping through the gate you feel the stresses and strains of the world disappear and feel enveloped with the calming warm ambience of the place. It is beautiful; the garden is filled with lemon, orange, fig and pomegranate trees with little winding paths through the garden. After being there only a few days, we all felt like we had been there a month because we were all so chilled out and relaxed. It was the ideal place for the course.

On arriving we were greeted by Viv herself and shown to our rooms, which were comfortable and inviting. There was also a roast dinner waiting for us, which was superb. Mmmm, the food, what can I say about the food. Every meal was fantastic; each meal was designed to give us energy and was PH balanced. There were snacks provided as well in case we ever got hungry, but the truth is, we were so well fed at mealtimes, that there was no need for any snacks.

After dinner we all hit the hot tub, by this time we were comfortable in each other’s company, so we had a great time chilling out under the stars in amongst the trees. This was the first of many dips into the hot tub; we even had class in there! Yes we did. When we didn’t need any notes and were able to just discuss the topic; we headed for the hot tub!

Our days began at 7.30am, where we would have around 30 minutes of meditation. When we started, it was dark outside and we would hear the sounds of the village waking up. Cockerels, dogs and cars stirring in the background. Once the mediation was finished, we would open our eyes, the sun had risen and it really prepared us for the start of our day.

By this time we had reached 10am – Breakfast Time, yay. We were all really hungry by this stage and breakfast was always fabulous. For breakfast, there were either cereals or porridge, followed by some type of eggs with toast. Always either a smoothie or juice, which were freshly made that morning, usually with fruit from the trees in the garden. So yummy.

Back at 11am for classes again and depending on whether we needed our notes or not, we would head to the poolside or the hot tub. If we had class in the hot tub, we sat for about 5 minutes just enjoying the jets and the bubbles, and then start our discussion. These were very enjoyable productive classes. It almost didn’t feel like we were learning, but we were learning loads.

We also did Karma Yoga everyday and this consisted of helping out around the retreat. This consisted of helping out in the garden or helping out in the house, from clearing up after meals and also cleaning the yoga studio. It was lovely to help out, as it really helped to settle us in, as we felt right at home and it was a big help to Tara and Dan.

We would have free time after lunch and we made the most of this, enjoying the sunshine.

Then at 4pm, we were back in the yoga studio for another asana practice or teaching practice. So by the end of the day we had done between 5-6 hours of yoga per day. That is a lot of yoga and in the first week it was tough going at some stages, but we worked our way through it and we could all feel ourselves getting stronger day by day.

One of our half days we headed to the beach, to Puerto de Mazarron, we had a lovely chilling day out and even ended up practicing sun salutation. Our full day off, we headed into Cartagena and we had a fabulous day there. Going round an ancient Roman amphitheatre, having a lovely lunch overlooking the marina and meandering around the streets, seeing the sites. Lovely, lovely day.

Our evenings we would spend laughing and chatting over dinner. Roy even downloaded X-Factor and the results shows so we wouldn’t miss any of them. Yes, we are obsessed with it! We even had two salsa nights where I taught the girls how to salsa. Of course we couldn’t manage to get Roy to join in; I think it was something about a dodgy hip! Hmmm, a likely story…

All too quickly the two weeks were over. We had learned so much and I was really starting to believe that I am going to be a yoga teacher, as were the rest of the girls. We had all become such good friends, and there was a real love and support for each other. It was an amazing time and I cannot wait until January for the next two weeks.

Of course you don´t need to be a yoga group to hire Tara Casa for an occasion, let us know your requirements and we look forward to seeing you soon.
