Teaching 20 years! Yoga with Gail

Teaching now 20 years! Yoga with Gail

20 years?

Where did the time go by?

I had retired from the IT department at DuPont, and continued to take computer classes at the University of Houston – Victoria, plus take all the PE classes at Victoria College.

I took the first offered yoga class at the university.

After my final exam in that class, which was a teach-back yoga class, along with my team, my yoga teacher told me that she liked my sequences and should become a yoga teacher.

The following month in my hometown at that time, YogaFit International Training Systems came to town and presented their Level 1 training. Soon afterwards I was teaching and taking additional training to get my 200 hours.

I was the first graduate of YogaFit’s 200-hour teacher training program (other than their trainers).

I remember one day, back in Victoria, I taught 5 classes in one day.

I soon racked up the teaching hours to get to the experienced level, then after moving to the Nederland/Port Neches, Texas area, took additional training from Lex Gillan at the Yoga Institute in Houston, to complete my 500-hour training.

I’ve enjoyed teaching for so many different places and studios and independently. Thank you.
