TEACHING METHODOLOGY / TRAINING METHODOLOGY
Sri Sri Yoga Teachers experiences:
“Sri Sri School of Yoga provides very profound and complete teaching of Yoga – getting in touch with ancient knowledge, coming from a path and lineage of Masters. I had my unique experience about all what we were studying and discussing, inspired by the example of our great teachers, full of knowledge, dedication, love and willingness to share their own path with us.
The programme gave me a new broader vision and deeper experiences, that has transformed me from whithin, helping me become my better version by recognising and leaving old patterns behind and getting in touch with my center and strength. The qualities and skills I acquire through the TTP and the daily practice of yoga, help me in every aspect of my life.”
“The course was a really live changing experience: diving both into the profound theory and intensive practice, learning from the teachers and from the fellow students, undergoing major changes on the level of the body and beyond – all this was happening in such a short time compared to the time it took me to get started! The TTP has taught me to treat my body with friendliness and respect, to grow in a live knowledge and to go deeper in understanding what is said and written about Yoga. It gave me a lot of enthusiasm to share what I’ve been receiving, to guide Yoga classes and help other people to get their access to Yoga.”
