Essence of Living is a unique studio that offers a diverse amount of classes catering to any person. It is a warm, accepting and encouraging community where one feels inspired to live their life passionately in whatever they do. It was my passion to acquire more skills in the art of teaching yoga and Pilates, and also to give back to others in the same way that the community of Essence had given to me.
Finances were not working in my favour at the time I wanted to sign up for the Level 1 Yoga and Pilates Teacher Training, however I had a lot of time to give. I turned up to classes as often as possible and eventually applied for the scholarship at Essence of Living. I feel very fortunate that Michelle selected me and trusted in me to do time for trade.
It is not often that studios offer this and is worth doing, not only from a financial standpoint, but also from the skills you naturally acquire with the time you spend working at the studio. You learn the admin side of the business, befriend the staff and students, and also get to be part of a fantastic teacher training that I can’t even begin to explain! The wonderful thing, too, is that you can start to visualise what working at the studio may be like and build rapport with potential students.
There are many pros in doing the scholarship. If you were to ask me whether it’s worth applying for I would say, “For sure… do it!”
