200 hour YTT course among a group of 10 people at Vishwa Shanti Yoga was an amazing experience. Learning how to stretch and contract your muscles, how to sit/stand, how to teach the same to masses that comprise of people from various background, thoughts and attitude – I felt like learning to become myself and accept the realities around me more clearly. In a month time, I have been a different person in my own eyes.
From the time I started as a yoga teacher, life has been placid and joyous but I felt incomplete. Like all other yoga students, I too had a deep desire to make a visit to the Yoga Capital, Rishikesh one day. I made it for 300 hour yoga teacher training course in Vishwa Shanti Yoga and yes, it was worth it. The motivating instructors and well managed course structure has helped me become more professional and devoted towards my work.
Most of the time of our life is spent maintaining our businesses, completing the pending jobs and addressing other's needs. We don't have time to realize how much our body needs nurturing. I spent only a week at Vishwa Shanti Yoga School in Rishikesh and it was like each cell of my body got nurtured. It was relaxing and refreshing. To get out of your everyday schedule, get away from all the nets and ties and live a few days for yourself... you will feel certainly good. I would recommend you to go to Vishwa Shanti Yoga School to be among a team of professionals who well know how to help you live for yourself.
