How Pranalife Yoga Teacher Training changed my life: Sarah de Poray

 


Sarah de Poray – Pranalife Yoga Certified Instructor, 2016

YTT was a pivotal experience in my life. I knew it was going to be massive, but it affected me in more ways than I anticipated.

Initially, we dialed our physical practices way back in order to drill deep into the details of how and why we’re moving the way we move. Asia was the first person ever to identify that I had been compensating for two muscular weaknesses, which led to investigating, researching, rehabilitating, strengthening and ultimately gaining a deeper confidence in my body. Thanks to that initial work, I’m a far stronger and more capable mover than I could’ve been without that time and focus, and I likely avoided physical injuries/issues as a result.

That style of deep exploration into our physical practices continued through the training into all aspects of our lives. The process was insightful, practical, revealing, sometimes hilarious, and there were so many ah-ha moments. I had to be willing to lean into discomfort, frustration, confusion, doubt, guilt, attachment, aversion – I had to have the courage to look directly into who I am. It wasn’t always easy, but it felt safe because Asia’s calm, confident support was there throughout. Thanks to that work, I came out with a deep knowledge of myself, a completely renewed approach to life, to yoga, to how I am with others. I came out transformed.

What makes Pranalife Yoga Teacher Training different? Asia. She’s a strong, fierce, fearless, wise leader who sees people and masterfully connects with their higher selves. Asia knows how to uncover potential in people, even when it’s been denied, overlooked, and/or undervalued.

Through this monumental journey of YTT that Asia leads people through year after year, she embodies freedom, strength and resilience, and gives people the sense that they, too, can step into their truth. She’s a true guide, a strong mentor who challenges others with love and determination to become not just “good enough” but better, stronger, to wade through the bullshit to rediscover and reclaim their power, their right to speak up, stand up and be powerful.
