Even though it’s Saturday, I didn’t jet off on a 3 hour yoga kind of morning like I usually do for my 500 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Program that I’ve been working on. For new readers, I’ve been a yoga teacher since 2001 at the 200 Hour Level, but have recently been pursing the highest level of yoga certification. I needed to add 300 more hours to what I already had. I mentioned in last week’s Highlights and Recaps Post that I would be graduating from my teacher training program this week. And I did
Now I have my 500 Hours of teacher training completed, I have my certificate from an accredited yoga school, and can register with Yoga Alliance as a Yoga Teacher the Highest Level, a RYT-500! If anyone missed my mega Yoga FAQ Post and you’re curious what this means or what you should be looking for in a teacher, I covered it there.
This has been nearly 10 years in the making. It’s the culmination of a decade of dedication to the practice, to the yoga community, to students, to yoga being a lifelong path for me, both on and off the mat. Yoga transcends all aspects of my life and it’s a gift I was fortunate enough to discover it a decade ago! I am really proud of myself for this major life milestone and accomplishment. For my regular readers you know how passionate I am about yoga and knowing that I have accomplished this goal, the highest level of certification, makes me really happy inside! Not trying to brag, but I am just really happy! And of course, doing it as a busy wife and mom makes the reward just that much sweeter!

Scott couldn’t decide if he liked the Peanut Butter Cup Centers Better….

PB Cup Brownie Cupcakes
Chocolate Chip Brownie Dough (or use a boxed brownie mix that you mix up according the direction on the box and pour it into liners – adjust baking times if you use a mix)
Dove Dark Chocolate Caramels
Reese’s PB Cups
Put a golf ball sized amount of dough into each muffin liner
Bake for for 5 Minutes at 350F
Insert either a PB Cup or a Dove Dark Choc Caramel into the Center
Bake for 8-9 more minutes
Melt White Chocolate
And Drizzle it Over the Top of the Brownie Cupcakes!
I slightly underbaked them so they were totally gooey and chocolate was everywhere.
