To be upfront, I don't know shit about yoga and don't fancy myself being restrained enough to live here for a month... but my friend was telling me about this last night - Living Yoga Training - Month Long Immersion Program - https://www.yogaville.org/residential-programs/lyt-program-living-yoga-training/

She lived at this yoga retreat for 28 days to become a yoga instructor. All her meals were provided (vegan, vegetarian) in an atmosphere of total restraint - no drugs/booze hell not even coffee was allowed. The cost for 28 days lodging & 3 meals is $600 but you can get a 30% discount if you live in a tent ($420) and an additional 10% if you are a student. LYT Program Financial Arrangements | Yogaville - https://www.yogaville.org/residential-programs/lyt-program-living-yoga-training/lyt-daily-schedule-finances/

This is located in rural Virginia but I think they offer rides from Charlottesville, VA. If you pass the training, you can live for an additional 2-3 months in exchange for teaching. I think there's work if you already know this yoga stuff. Good luck!

Seems like a pretty reasonable deal. Word to the wise though I know several yoga instructors with 4+ yrs of instruction who all work in the marijuana industry because they can't pay the rent with yoga. Most major cities have a surplus of instructors. Still a demand in the sticks though. They say Texas is going blue...

That sounds like a real good thing for anyone who is looking to change their way of being, or who needs to change their way of being.... because this would be such a drastic change for many individuals out there.
Yoga is my next step, but not as a teacher, but as a pupil........

My cousin did this, in India, she stayed in an Ashram for a few months and got qualified to teach in multiple countries, the courses are prob cheaper in India, but then theres getting there too but new stuff to see an do.. she also is qualified in another thing as well and just does the yoga instructor thing part time... I think its important to realize though that Yoga is more then Asanas alone.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $90.75 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $90.75 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

I'mma cut to the chase: You don't call me what I consider to be a slur or insult, and I won't call you names.
You say I should love myself and have more self-confidence. You've got it all wrong. I love myself plenty, and I know for a fact that I am capable of doing incredible things, both good and evil.
You say fake it till you make it. I'm too honest for that. Instead I will have faith in myself, and act accordingly.
These new rules for the train riding forum are ridiculous. I've been on here for 5 ish years.

I read your story last month about working in Alaska. I got a job in Naknek this summer. Definitely can get how it felt like jail. I fear it's really going to feel that way with this virus. We can't go into town. I'm not very happy about that since it will limit my exploring. Yet I really need the opportunity right now. Anymore advice is much appreciated.
