Student Testimonials

Practicals by Raja master was excellent. He made all-out efforts in teaching us as many postures as he can. On seeing his enthusiasm, I was very much motivated which makes me attempt further 300 hours also. Though very short, master Rajadurai impressed me with his simple technics of asana practices.

Looking forward to having a long and continued association with our institute of Asana Andiappan college of yoga and research center.

200 Hrs Intensive Hatha Yoga Teacher Training Certificate Course (Basic-Intermediate Level)

I had a very good experience at the 200-hour intensive yoga therapy teachers training course.

There was a good balance of theory and Practicals. I really enjoyed every bit of the course. All the baths (banana leaf and mud bath) we’re interesting and healing for my body. The practice of Kriyas was a nice experience. On the whole, a wonderful experience. All the faculty were really knowledgeable and good in teaching.

Many thanks to Asana Andiappan yoga college for giving me this wonderful learning opportunity.

Thanks, and Regards

All your classes are very motivational, inspiring and lively too. Especially, I will miss Raja sir class, who trained me all these days. Even all other staffs also, they are all excellent in their own ways. And a big thanks to Yogananth sir as well. I attended his 10 days class which was very useful and informative.Regards,

200 Hrs Intensive Hatha Yoga Teacher Training Certificate Course (Intermediate - Advanced Level)

Course Date: 21 - 08 - 2017 To 07 - 09 - 2017

I opted for 200 hours of Hatha teacher training course (intermediate to advanced level). The syllabus is very neatly structured. 30 Basic asanas plus the advanced variations of each asanas were taught (3-4 variations for each asana).

We had a few sessions taken by Guruji himself. He explained about good food habits, dos and don’ts while practicing Yoga. He also took a session on Pranayama. It was so grateful to be a part of his session. Such a down to earth person.

Practical session (morning and evening) was taken care by Master Raja. He trained everyone in such a way that, the individual is not injured in anyway while doing the asanas. For each body type, different variations were suggested by him. Different techniques and variations made the practice easy and understandable. Many thanks!

Thanks to Poojitha mam for the anatomy and naturopathy class. We had a self-preparatory session to make out own healthy diet food. It was very interesting and good team work.

Thanks to other faculties - Ms. Ezhili, Prakash sir, Annadurai sir, Rajadurai sir for making each theory sessions interesting.Apart from asanas we also had practical sessions on Kriyas (by master Raja), mud bath and leaf bath (by Ms.Ezhili). It was really a different experience and made us aware of the possible treatments which can be done naturally at home.

Though I had taken 200 hours of non-residential teacher training course, they were so graceful to provide us room to take rest after lunch (1-4). Due to personal reasons I could not opt for 300/500 hours of course, but I would come back in future to learn more and make myself well versed in all asanas.

Thank you once again for the wonderful experience.

Throughout the training, Master Yogannath always said “Try” in class. Yes, if I didn’t try the yoga teacher training at Anahata, I would never learn about the history and origin of Hatha yoga system as well as different postures which I have never done in other local yoga centers previously.
Before joining the course, a word “Advance” in the course name scared me very much. Since I didn’t attend the general yoga teacher training in the past, I was afraid that I didn’t understand the yoga theory especially yoga anatomy, pranayamas and was unable to do the advance poses. However, those concerns disappeared in the very beginning of the training. Actually, I enjoyed the theoretical parts such as yoga anatomy and cleaning practices (kriyas) very much. Besides, I could experience many advance poses with different variations according to my own flexibility level with clear instructions by Master Yogannath and Master Vijay throughout the training.
Anahata may not be a large scale yoga centre in town, but its family operation could give us many chances to get closer with the teachers and staff and to develop a harmony without competition yoga practice environments.
Lastly, I would highly recommend the yoga practitioners and in-service yoga teachers to join this training. You will feel the great differences-externally and internally after completion of the course.

Wow, can I just say, what a challenging course! I think it was indeed very advanced, but I’m glad I took it. I never would have attempted these kinds of poses or postures on my own; but with Master Yogananth’s guidance and preparation I was surprised what my body was able to do, and the intensity of the postures revealed many weak or underdeveloped areas in my body and in my life. After the first weekend of intense twisting, I experienced a very strong emotional reaction to the postures. One minute I felt like crying, then the next I felt a sense of relief. What a surprise to observe how such intense poses could affect my mind

What a surprise to observe how such intense poses could affect my mind and emotions so strongly. But soon I worked through that and I discovered some fascinating things about my body. I saw that I was open in places I thought I wasn’t and tight or closed in places I expected to be more open. All in all it was a great, if not daunting, process of discovery. I feel, though, like I would need to take this course two or three more times, before I fully understood, or was able to do all the various postures taught in this course. But at least I have the manual, so I can continue to practice on my own or at Andiappan. Master Yogananth is an excellent teacher, extremely knowledgeable, compassionate and charismatic. He certainly has a gift. What an honor and a joy to learn and practice under his guidance. My main criticism of the course is that the class was too large for the venue, but just by three of four students. Not everyone could get to access to the wall when needed, so everyone couldn’t experiment with every posture each time. There was also maybe too material to cover in a short amount of time. On the other hand, the length of the classes was exhausting for someone who was not in very good or excellent condition. That said, I realize the class was designed as a practical class. However, I really enjoyed the bits and pieces of history and philosophy that were occasionally discussed. Personally, I would have liked to have had discussed more philosophy and theory, including discussions on meditation, pranayama, charkas, and bandhas. All in all in was a life-changing experience.

My experience about this course was very important for my development of my practice. The course was very intense and I had some difficult moments to understand and to accept my limitations in my practice, but in the other side this experience had opened in me another level of consciousness.
It was very important to have these two months of school and focus on my practice.
Now a have a more clear picture how I can improve the practice but also how improve myself with the yoga in my daily life, now I fell more self-confidence how to better the positions and listen and feel my body in the posture., thanks to the understanding of the ‘anatomy and how I breathe.
It was a beautiful experience and I consider myself lucky to have done it.

I use to think yoga is just warriors, triangles, half moon, standing, splits & so on, but in Anahata I learned some great stretches which transformed my body, into more flexibility. Wish I could continue my practice here but I am carrying along all the sweet memories with me. Thank you to Master Yogananth, Vishnu, Mahesh, Yogesh & Anurag.

I have really enjoyed participating in the course and have learned a great deal about my own and others’ practice. I particularly enjoyed the practical part of the course, and learned much about the benefits, contradictions, variations and modifications of the asanas. I also enjoyed Yogananth’s and Yogesh’s light-­hearted approach, which is something that I would like to carry through into my own practice as a teacher. I also enjoyed the fact that Yogananth Is very appreciative about people’s different views and needs of yoga and is realistic about how one could integrate this into their daily life, without it becoming overwhelming for a complete beginner. Vishnu was also clearly very knowledgeable and has given me a great understanding of the anatomy of the body and how I can now use this to aid my practice.
Overall, I am happy with my learning and my understanding of the teachings of the course. I look forward to putting my newfound knowledge into practice and developing this further.

I also enjoyed the fact that Yogananth Is very appreciative about people’s different views and needs of yoga and is realistic about how one could integrate this into their daily life, without it becoming overwhelming for a complete beginner. Vishnu was also clearly very knowledgeable and has given me a great understanding of the anatomy of the body and how I can now use this to aid my practice.
Overall, I am happy with my learning and my understanding of the teachings of the course. I look forward to putting my newfound knowledge into practice and developing this further.

I really enjoy this course and l was particularly impressed with the experience and depth of knowledge of the instructors. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to take this course, especially since its timing has allowed me to participate while working full time and take care of my family. Master Vishnu was extremely enthusiastic and knowledgeable about ayurvedic theory, but this section might have been interspersed with learning approaches to break up the long lectures. His make-up class was one of the best sessions of the course - he explained a lot of anatomical knowledge that I did not previously have with diagrams while addressing those issues with yoga therapy. Master Arun was delightful and truly inspiring. His Iyengar classes gave me a very beautiful experience of yoga that I had never had before. I felt very fortunate and grateful to have studied with him. His heart is full of love for humanity. I purchased his book and I hope that once I have the opportunity to read it, that I will be able to apply his lessons to my practice and teaching. Master Yogananth is an excellent teacher – he is very skilled at interspersing the delivery of technical information with illuminating narratives and practical exercises. His delivery is natural but always directed and on topic. His knowledge and experience (and patience) is remarkable. Anahata has some truly amazing instructors. It has been a blessing to study and practice with all the teachers and I intend on taking further courses with Anahata. Thank you.

I love the course. I have learnt so much about yoga from this course. It first cleared all the wrong ideas I had about yoga, and it also instilled in me what yoga really is. Teachers are great with many years of experience. They are very passionate about all aspects of yoga, such as Mudra, Bandha, Asana, Meditation and Pranayama. They always tried their best to help or give you options when you can’t approach an asana. Besides, all the teachers know their subject thoroughly so they will provide you with answers to all your questions. Instructions are given clearly, so that even beginners like me feel confident that I can to do a more advanced asana or become good at yoga eventually. Also, all the admin staff is very friendly and easy-going and always ready to help when you need them. After the course, students are also given chances to work with different charity groups to put what we have learnt into practice.

In the first session, I was enlightened by Master Yogananth when he was explaining what yoga is. At that moment, I suddenly realized that I was only practicing asanas in the past without knowing the real meaning of yoga. I felt so insufficient and ignorant. However, instead of bewildered, I was inquisitive in further understanding yoga. After attending Master Anurag’s module on Introduction on Yoga Theory, I then have much clearer concept on philosophy of yoga, which provided me the foundation in understanding the profound orthodox of yoga. The meaning and concepts of “The eight limbs of yoga”, the ways to clear my soul with Yama and Niyama, the ways to achieve harmony of yin and yang inside the body through practicing asanas, kriyas and pranayamas, and the means to achieve Dharana, Dhyana and Samadhi all these were brand new horizon for me to explore. I now feel like having something beautiful to pursue throughout my life time, which can lead me to the highest spiritual status. And I hope I can somehow influence the people next to me, simmer down the restless souls and savour the joy of life with them.

I really loved this course. After studying an Anatomy 101 at University I felt that I can already could apply yoga methods to the healing and strengthening of physical ailments, but I have a clearer knowledge now on how exactly yoga makes a difference.
I understand that in addition to stretching a muscle, by stimulating or relaxing pressure points in the body, a pain, spasm, stiffness or even uric acid crystals can heal by altering blood supply and sufficient nerve pulses through the target area. It is very interesting to learn which postures stimulate certain pressure points añd how I can apply pressure manually as a Yoga Therapist. I have tried it on a client and it works really well.
I found the topic on women's health very interesting too, Dr Lakshmi has vast knowledge. There are exercises that I implemented on myself and my best friend to relieve serious menstrual pain and ovarian cysts and it subsided within the first month. Therewith I also incorporated postures to help balance our hormones which proved promising to the fact that I am now happily pregnant. I will definitely explore this route of practise further with my clients, because I know it worked on me and my best friend too.
Master Yogananth's classes on specifically Breast Cancer was also a great field of interest and I started attending the actual classes with the patients that he is working with. I was amazed to see a difference in these patients, not only physically but also in their moods and outlook on life. This is a field of practice that I would like to pursue further. It is encouraging to learn that I can help women with mastectomies to overcome limitations caused by the removal of (-or partial removal of) their pectorals and sometimes intercostal muscles. Helping these women to heal, use their arm again, build immunity and feel good about themselves again is very satisfying.
In Abu Dhabi, where I live are also many people with diabetes that I would like to help. It is amazing that such simple movements can make such a great difference to people's lives in management of their disease. Simple postures stimulate the organs and glands responsible for such a destructive disease and I would like to help these suffers to manage their symptoms better. One of my dearest friends in Dubai is pregnant and suffers from gestational diabetes and arthritis because of it. I have given her the postures as Dr Lakshmi has demonstrated to us and they seem to be relieving her symptoms. It is fulfilling to have the answers and methods to help others.
My father also suffers from a form of arthritis, gout. After this course I was able to give my father advice on his diet and also gave him a range of digestive postures and movements that help blood circulation and lymph drainage; three month later with regular practice he is gout free!
This year I also found out that I have cervical spondylosis and a bulging disk between c4 and c5. With the knowledge I have learned from this course I am able to manage my injury and lifestyle. I know now how to alter my practice to prevent recurrent injury and I also know how to do strengthening exercises for the muscles of the neck and loosen the muscles around the shoulders to prevent spasms. It has proven to be successful and I am happy to manage my injury in a way to live a pain free life and I am ready to help others with similar injuries.
Thank you.

Yoga therapy is a very board and expanding subject. Master Vishnu is very knowledgeable on the subject. We’ve learnt anatomy in understanding the body and different systems; the yoga therapy and ayurvedic theories and how they work; the different diseases and body conditions; how to use the yoga therapy approaches to help manage different body conditions. Other teachers Master Yogananth, Master Arun, Master Lakshmi and Master Anurag also shared many useful knowledge and experiences on different aspects of the subject. The course is very informative and we get to observe and analyse different body types, as well as practising different yoga therapy sequences.

It was interesting to learn how to provide suitable yoga practice to eliminate physical and mental stresses, so-called modern day disorders, such as insomnia, diabetes, stiff shoulders etc. The topics were very large and I understood very basic but the knowledge and the experience are of much help to my future daily practice and life. I would like to start to assist the Breast cancer patient yoga class to learn more and would like to teach sometime in the future. I enjoyed this course and Thank you for all Yoga Masters at Anahata Yoga.

Advanced Hatha Yoga TTC with Anahata was a great learning experience for me. I always wanted to do Advance TTC, but was little skeptical with the term 'Advance', as I was never sure whether I would be able to cope up with the practice.
But, Guru Yogananth made the task simple. He made our body go beyond our perceived limits effortlessly, which made me realise that it is quite possible.
The TTC was very friendly, humorous and encouraging. There was a positive energy prevailing throughout the training program. Everyday some kind of miracle was happening with the members. We were able to do things which we thought were beyond our capabilities. It gave me a lot of confidence, and I also got to know about my own body strengths. By the end of the program ,I was feeling very light, flexible, strong and energetic.
The program is very well designed to impart the learning methodically and step wise. Students could actually feel that how our daily practice is preparing us for the advance postures. For me, it brought a wonderful transformation I was always looking for. To me, It is a treasure for lifetime.
Thank you Anahata team. I would like to continue my learning with Anahata in future.

The training transformed my practice on a deep level. I learnt many new technics to approach advanced poses that I would never imagine of doing. I love the fact that many warm up technics and different ways of approaching a pose are taught in class. The training is a challenging one but it opens up my mind and let me experience what yoga really is. I enjoyed the training very much. Last but not least, I am grateful for Master Yogananth's patience and dedications in his teaching and for Master Vijay's skillful adjustments which helped me to experience a pose deeper.
It would be great to have separate lectures to talk about theories like warm up and technics. Although they are covered in practical classes, it is difficult to take notes and to memorize them while attempting the poses. I also felt that the second half of training was quite rushed. It is rather difficult to absorb all the new things that are taught. That being said, I have learnt a lot from the training, on both practical level and understanding of myself.
Thank you!

Throughout the training, Master Yogannath always said “Try” in class. Yes, if I didn’t try the yoga teacher training at Anahata, I would never learn about the history and origin of Hatha yoga system as well as different postures which I have never done in other local yoga centers previously.
Before joining the course, a word “Advance” in the course name scared me very much. Since I didn’t attend the general yoga teacher training in the past, I was afraid that I didn’t understand the yoga theory especially yoga anatomy, pranayamas and was unable to do the advance poses. However, those concerns disappeared in the very beginning of the training. Actually, I enjoyed the theoretical parts such as yoga anatomy and cleaning practices (kriyas) very much. Besides, I could experience many advance poses with different variations according to my own flexibility level with clear instructions by Master Yogannath and Master Vijay throughout the training.
Anahata may not be a large scale yoga centre in town, but its family operation could give us many chances to get closer with the teachers and staff and to develop a harmony without competition yoga practice environments.
Lastly, I would highly recommend the yoga practitioners and in-service yoga teachers to join this training. You will feel the great differences-externally and internally after completion of the course.

Wow, can I just say, what a challenging course! I think it was indeed very advanced, but I’m glad I took it. I never would have attempted these kinds of poses or postures on my own; but with Master Yogananth’s guidance and preparation I was surprised what my body was able to do, and the intensity of the postures revealed many weak or underdeveloped areas in my body and in my life. After the first weekend of intense twisting, I experienced a very strong emotional reaction to the postures. One minute I felt like crying, then the next I felt a sense of relief. What a surprise to observe how such intense poses could affect my mind and emotions so strongly. But soon I worked through that and I discovered some fascinating things about my body. I saw that I was open in places I thought I wasn’t and tight or closed in places I expected to be more open. All in all it was a great, if not daunting, process of discovery. I feel, though, like I would need to take this course two or three more times, before I fully understood, or was able to do all the various postures taught in this course. But at least I have the manual, so I can continue to practice on my own or at Andiappan. Master Yogananth is an excellent teacher, extremely knowledgeable, compassionate and charismatic. He certainly has a gift. What an honor and a joy to learn and practice under his guidance. My main criticism of the course is that the class was too large for the venue, but just by three of four students. Not everyone could get to access to the wall when needed, so everyone couldn’t experiment with every posture each time. There was also maybe too material to cover in a short amount of time. On the other hand, the length of the classes was exhausting for someone who was not in very good or excellent condition. That said, I realize the class was designed as a practical class. However, I really enjoyed the bits and pieces of history and philosophy that were occasionally discussed. Personally, I would have liked to have had discussed more philosophy and theory, including discussions on meditation, pranayama, charkas, and bandhas. All in all in was a life-changing experience.

The program was intense but came with full benefits: I surprised myself in many advanced asanas that I couldn’t imagine I could have done before. By gently pushing my body to explore that level of intensity helped me to experience the joy of mindfulness and contemplation in each pose. This is key to improve.
Master Yogananth unfolded the mystery of each complicated asana by clearly demonstrating if step by step. Every one of us has a chance to practice many times the same posture under the guidance of the Anahata master.
I have experienced many benefits of practicing regularly the cleansing and the breathing techniques.
I have truly enjoyed all aspects of the advanced training. I can now teach a Hatha Yoga class with knowledge and confidence.

When I started learning yoga, my teacher and classmates told me that I would be able to do the posture if I practiced every day. However, I do not understand why I can do the posture at one time and cannot do it at the other time. Through this TT course, I not only explore my body limitation but also understand the coordination of muscle and breathing in yoga practice. I can also get the benefit of the posture through different modifications and variations.
Master Yogannath is very open-minded. He explained in great detail and very scientifically the movement of joints as well as how different types of muscles and tendons work. It was very impressive. Now I understand while regular practice is important, listening and understanding our body are as important. I really appreciate Master Yogannath’s passion and unselfishness in teaching. He totally understands the condition of each member and takes good care of everyone.

I use to think yoga is just warriors, triangles, half moon, standing, splits & so on, but in Anahata I learned some great stretches which transformed my body, into more flexibility. Wish I could continue my practice here but I am carrying along all the sweet memories with me. Thank you to Master Yogananth, Vishnu, Mahesh, Yogesh & Anurag. Last but not the least I genuinely enjoyed & learned something new in Andiappan class.

I have really enjoyed participating in the course and have learned a great deal about my own and others’ practice. I particularly enjoyed the practical part of the course, and learned much about the benefits, contradictions, variations and modifications of the asanas. I also enjoyed Yogananth’s and Yogesh’s light-­hearted approach, which is something that I would like to carry through into my own practice as a teacher. I also enjoyed the fact that Yogananth Is very appreciative about people’s different views and needs of yoga and is realistic about how one could integrate this into their daily life, without it becoming overwhelming for a complete beginner. Vishnu was also clearly very knowledgeable and has given me a great understanding of the anatomy of the body and how I can now use this to aid my practice.
Overall, I am happy with my learning and my understanding of the teachings of the course. I look forward to putting my newfound knowledge into practice and developing this further.

When I started learning yoga, my teacher and classmates told me that I would be able to do the posture if I practiced every day. However, I do not understand why I can do the posture at one time and cannot do it at the other time. Through this TT course, I not only explore my body limitation but also understand the coordination of muscle and breathing in yoga practice. I can also get the benefit of the posture through different modifications and variations.
Master Yogannath is very open-minded. He explained in great detail and very scientifically the movement of joints as well as how different types of muscles and tendons work. It was very impressive. Now I understand while regular practice is important, listening and understanding our body are as important. I really appreciate Master Yogannath’s passion and unselfishness in teaching. He totally understands the condition of each member and takes good care of everyone.
Thank you, Master Yogannath for your encouragement. And, thank you, Master Vijay for your help.

Throughout the training, Master Yogannath always said “Try” in class. Yes, if I didn’t try the yoga teacher training at Anahata, I would never learn about the history and origin of Hatha yoga system as well as different postures which I have never done in other local yoga centers previously.
Before joining the course, a word “Advance” in the course name scared me very much. Since I didn’t attend the general yoga teacher training in the past, I was afraid that I didn’t understand the yoga theory especially yoga anatomy, pranayamas and was unable to do the advance poses. However, those concerns disappeared in the very beginning of the training. Actually, I enjoyed the theoretical parts such as yoga anatomy and cleaning practices (kriyas) very much. Besides, I could experience many advance poses with different variations according to my own flexibility level with clear instructions by Master Yogannath and Master Vijay throughout the training.
Anahata may not be a large scale yoga centre in town, but its family operation could give us many chances to get closer with the teachers and staff and to develop a harmony without competition yoga practice environments.
Lastly, I would highly recommend the yoga practitioners and in-service yoga teachers to join this training. You will feel the great differences-externally and internally after completion of the course.

The training transformed my practice on a deep level. I learnt many new technics to approach advanced poses that I would never imagine of doing. I love the fact that many warm up technics and different ways of approaching a pose are taught in class. The training is a challenging one but it opens up my mind and let me experience what yoga really is. I enjoyed the training very much. Last but not least, I am grateful for Master Yogananth's patience and dedications in his teaching and for Master Vijay's skillful adjustments which helped me to experience a pose deeper.
It would be great to have separate lectures to talk about theories like warm up and technics. Although they are covered in practical classes, it is difficult to take notes and to memorize them while attempting the poses. I also felt that the second half of training was quite rushed. It is rather difficult to absorb all the new things that are taught. That being said, I have learnt a lot from the training, on both practical level and understanding of myself.
Thank you!

The Advanced Hatha Yoga Teacher Training Level 1 and 2 is a must for every yoga practitioner who wants to take their practice to a deeper level.
The program was intense but came with full benefits: I surprised myself in many advanced asanas that I couldn’t imagine I could have done before. By gently pushing my body to explore that level of intensity helped me to experience the joy of mindfulness and contemplation in each pose. This is key to improve.
Master Yogananth unfolded the mystery of each complicated asana by clearly demonstrating if step by step. Every one of us has a chance to practice many times the same posture under the guidance of the Anahata master.
I have experienced many benefits of practicing regularly the cleansing and the breathing techniques.
I have truly enjoyed all aspects of the advanced training. I can now teach a Hatha Yoga class with knowledge and confidence.
Thank you Master Yogananth for this life-changing journey.

Wow, can I just say, what a challenging course! I think it was indeed very advanced, but I’m glad I took it. I never would have attempted these kinds of poses or postures on my own; but with Master Yogananth’s guidance and preparation I was surprised what my body was able to do, and the intensity of the postures revealed many weak or underdeveloped areas in my body and in my life. After the first weekend of intense twisting, I experienced a very strong emotional reaction to the postures. One minute I felt like crying, then the next I felt a sense of relief. What a surprise to observe how such intense poses could affect my mind and emotions so strongly. But soon I worked through that and I discovered some fascinating things about my body. I saw that I was open in places I thought I wasn’t and tight or closed in places I expected to be more open. All in all it was a great, if not daunting, process of discovery. I feel, though, like I would need to take this course two or three more times, before I fully understood, or was able to do all the various postures taught in this course. But at least I have the manual, so I can continue to practice on my own or at Andiappan. Master Yogananth is an excellent teacher, extremely knowledgeable, compassionate and charismatic. He certainly has a gift. What an honor and a joy to learn and practice under his guidance. My main criticism of the course is that the class was too large for the venue, but just by three of four students. Not everyone could get to access to the wall when needed, so everyone couldn’t experiment with every posture each time. There was also maybe too material to cover in a short amount of time. On the other hand, the length of the classes was exhausting for someone who was not in very good or excellent condition. That said, I realize the class was designed as a practical class. However, I really enjoyed the bits and pieces of history and philosophy that were occasionally discussed. Personally, I would have liked to have had discussed more philosophy and theory, including discussions on meditation, pranayama, charkas, and bandhas. All in all in was a life-changing experience.

My experience about this course was very important for my development of my practice. The course was very intense and I had some difficult moments to understand and to accept my limitations in my practice, but in the other side this experience had opened in me another level of consciousness.
It was very important to have these two months of school and focus on my practice.
Now a have a more clear picture how I can improve the practice but also how improve myself with the yoga in my daily life, now I fell more self-confidence how to better the positions and listen and feel my body in the posture., thanks to the understanding of the ‘anatomy and how I breathe.
It was a beautiful experience and I consider myself lucky to have done it.
Namaste!
