 A Reflection on Our Leadership Teacher Training in Tulum, Mexico

A behind the scenes of the magic that we experienced during our Leadership Immersion in paradise.


Leadership Teacher Training
I distinctly remember standing at my kitchen counter staring at my list. Feelings of nervousness & excitment were seeping into my veins. I stared at the pros. I looked for the cons.
In that moment, it was clear. Despite feelings of unease in embarking on this journey alone, I knew that I had to go. I pulled out my phone & typed an email to Happy Jack.
The list went a little something like this:
-I’ll get to create leadership skills
-I’ll become friends with yoga teachers
-It’s in Mexico
-It’s recognized by Yoga Alliance
-It’s a lot of money
-I’m really busy

7 months later, I was on a flight to Cancun, Mexico for my Leadership Teacher Training. When I arrived at the retreat center full of nerves, I was blown away by the beauty of the Maya Tulum Retreat Center. I was scared to meet the team. What if I wasn’t what they expected? Would everyone be welcoming? In fact, upon meeting Jack, I told him I was feeling anxious.
I had never studied yoga with the Happy Jack team. I had zero idea what Jack’s classes were like. Despite my fears, I knew that my yoga business, and as a human, that I needed this Leadership Teacher Training.
After his first class, I was blown away. In it’s own unique way, it was one of the BEST yoga classes that I had ever taken. I, surprisingly, loved the singing. It gave me permission to be silly & to embrace my voice while connecting with the community in a new way. The mats aligned in a circle created a new connection that I hadn’t experienced before. I even embraced touching the people next to me during airplane pose.

We explored the Mayan culture while at Maya Tulum Retreat Center. The team over-delivered. Our second night, HJY welcomed two beautiful Mayan healers to perform a cacao ceremony for us. We sang as the music carried our thoughts away & we welcomed the Mayan New Year.
The following night, we were gathered on the beach for ceremony with a Mayan Shaman. We were arranged in a 1/2 circle around an alter decorated with seeds, flowers, & leaves. From there, we saw a glimpse of white in the corner of our eyes. Shocked, we grinned as we figured out what was happening. Hanna with a boquet in her hand was beaming as a beautiful bride. Jack with a huge smile on his face. Their union as man & wife was an incredible experience.
As if the retreat couldn’t get any better, the same Shaman as the night before, returned. During our Sweat Lodge Ceremony, we released regret & replaced it with forgiveness. We let go of our pain & sorrow and greeted it with love & compassion.

These experiences, the people, the magic of Tulum, helped guide me to exactly what I needed.
The Freedom to Speak my Truth.
The training was more than I needed. I left the leadership training with more confidence, clarity in my vision & friendships. Jack is a “Breakthrough” master. All my stories that I had been carrying around became transparent. I set, empowering intentions. I mastermined my future.

Tulum, Mexico was absolutely perfect. I am counting down the days until I get to return again in November 2018. Will you be joining us?
