Don't be scared of that Mantra stuff!!!
Mantra:  Mana=Mind  Tra=protect
Mantra literally means to protect the mind.
Using a mantra which is a phrase one repeats over and over again helps the analytical part of our mind stay focused while the rest of our mind can simply be.
We spend so much time doing, so little time being.  When we finally have time to BE, that part of our brain still wants to do..so give it something to do.
A mantra can be a prayer, a single word or sanskrit phrase. 
There are many mantras and thing to do is have a few in your tool belt to pull out when you need them.
I often recite the name of teacher when I'm feeling low..her name always puts a smile on my face.  When I want to focus on impermanence there is another one when I want to focus on forgiveness another.
Three I often use are: 
"I AM"
 "Om mani padme' hum"
 "Om"
Pick one and try using it during a sitting or walking meditation and watch how they help you focus and transform.

About Teacher Training

From my first to my last day, your program continuously expanded my mind and capabilities. It fostered my independent learning and provided a supportive community for growth. Thank you for taking the time and energy to share your knowledge, sending more conscious people into the world. I am excited for this next step in life-long learning of yoga and of life.
