While I came on this teacher training course to hone my yoga practice and learn the structures to put in place internally (personally) and externally (environment) toward becoming a yoga teacher, I am leaving with so much more than I anticipated. I have a head full of knowledge, skills, techniques, options, mantras. More importantly, I have an awakening, awareness and an appreciation of what it really means to live the life of a yogini. Each and every person I have come in contact with at this course has played part in this awakening. I feel so grateful to have had this experience. Thank you all!
The aims for which I took up this course have been very well achieved. I am taking away a lot of tools to be able to teach. I have many highlights from the training which include; yoga nidra, excellent teachers, especially Pragyadhara, Becca and Felicity, plus learning alignment well, learning about sequencing, safety, benefits, the business side of setting up a yoga business and the skype question and answer session with Swami Shankaratilka. I have honed my skills, and learned so much more. I feel able to teach now without confusion, so thanks! I would highly recommend this course, yoga is valuable.
Thank you Kawai Purapura, Pragyadhara and Becca for creating a programme that allows full immersion into the realm of yoga, integrating mind and soul with the physical practices. Through your teaching my appreciation for yoga has grown incredibly and I feel prepared for the next step in my journey.
