Becoming a Yoga teacher
In 2012, after a several years practising yoga, and aware of the massive change of my health, I decided to go to India. Specifically, I wanted to do a Yoga teacher training course to go deeper with the practices. I wanted to learn more about these ancient techniques that had changed my life.
However, it wasn’t easy to find the right course. India offers so many teacher trainings (TTC) courses. Many of them are purely focused on body, and for me, it was really clear that Yoga is much more than just asanas (postures).
I was lucky to find the right TTC for me. The foundations of the course were based in the teachings of the Satyananda yoga tradition, the yoga that I had been practising for several years.
The asana part of the course was a mix of different yoga schools, which gave me the opportunity to experience and learn different systems. I was taught directly by teachers from Satyananda, Sivananda, Ashtanga and Vinyasa schools of yoga.
It gave me a much better understanding of Yoga asana. As an instructor, I was able to offer different styles of asana classes. Combining important aspects of Satyananda teachings like pranayama (breathing practices), Yoga Nidra (relaxation), and the Shatkarmas (cleansing practices).
After the course, I knew that I wanted to share Yoga. I wanted to offer this amazing tool that had changed my life so positively.
After a year sharing Hatha Yoga, I decided to go deeper with the teachings and I started a two year Diploma Satyananda Yoga in Australia.
