This yoga training will transform your body with physical strength, and ideals. Yoga is the continuous cycle of building and breaking down the body. The body is being built from day one students walk in to their very first class. It’s an amazing experience to be a yoga teacher. When you start teaching classes, you suddenly see all the things you have gained by studying yoga for years: greater flexibility, more stamina, better focus, clarity of thought. Being a yoga student helps you be a great teacher. I know something that will make you happy. I’ve been practicing yoga for over 23 years and have worked with world-class yoga teachers. As a yoga teacher, you must not only know the demands of your own body but how to work with the bodies of others. Just as you bend the physical body into different shapes, so use yourself as a model for others to follow and straighten their bodies. Consider the humble beginnings of modern yoga: a small group of educated Indians meeting together for their own physical and spiritual benefit. These beginnings were humble indeed, but they were the direct result of many years of political turmoil. The visionaries who founded this group had been denied access to earlier forms of yoga study due to political restrictions that prevented travel outside the area where they lived. As a result, the founders of this new form asked for their yoga to be simple and practical, accessible to all people regardless of background or beliefs.

I wish you well on your journey and remember this is your training, done for you; we are always here for you.

Be well, and have fun!
