Philosophy, pranayama, asana, meditation – they are all connected. Physical, mental and spiritual energy all plays equal part in creating a well connected practice (lifestyle) for practice and teaching. Within a matter of weeks – sometimes days – students begin to experience deep transformation. Through yoga practice, we are training the body to balance and support itself, and training the mind to trust our own selves as we move our body.It takes only twenty-eight days to complete a 200-hour Teacher Training Course, but within this short period, we witness how students from all walks of life undergo an astounding transformation. Their bodies change remarkably, but the real transformation is much deeper. One month is, after all, a very short time in which to grasp the core of the yogic path, and we are repeatedly astonished and humbled by how much our students are able to learn and grow in such a short time.
