Last week I had an interview at the YMCA here in my tiny town. The week previous I had put in my application to be a yoga teacher, thinking: what the heck! Why not just try and see what happens. So when they called, I put together a little leave behind paper about myself and waltzed into the Y pretending I knew what I was talking about. (Well, in truth, I know a lot about what I'm talking about... my yoga training thus far has been superb.)
A few days later they called and said I got the job. They have no weekly classes open for me to teach, but they wanted me to be available as a substitute teacher when needed. Which is totally great! A perfect baby step into teaching for a newbie!
So the next steps are to get a drug test and take 15 classes at the Y to see how their program runs. I'm excited. It's a tiny step in a direction I can't wait to explore!
