The PYP training came into my life at a moment where the sense of purpose had temporarily been drained from my work as a public high school teacher. There was a void, which I think may actually have been an intentional conduit to an evolution in my life. I’m not going to quit teaching, but maybe my future experiences with PYP will lay a foundation for the next phase of my life. In the short term, it deepened my relationship to my body and my personal yoga practice.
