Yoga is all about transformation. To purify yourself, to grow, to live a balanced life, to be healthy to be happy.
The Indian Classic Yoga Teacher Training Course does not merely focus on getting you to teach asana’s. It is about using all the tools of Yoga to work on yourself from the base. It will change your life for the better, so that you can help other people to do the same.
We have asked 6 of our students to share their experience.
What did you like most about the Teacher Training Course?
“The most I liked was that the TTC brought me back to my basis. A very grounded base is necessary, which before, I did not understand.“
“I liked how Pinky provoked my ego, as this is how I learned the most and that is where the change starts. Also topics about knowing ourselves and helping ourselves to be happy. And I loved the people!”
“The personal attention and time spend on the life struggles, rather than just teaching theory or Asana’s. And also knowing that when I need help afterwards, I can always call or ask.”
“Cooking Indian food with Pinky!”
What about the Teacher Training Course has surprised you the most?
“The dedication of the Teachers and the highest states that you can reach with Yoga.”
“How much the TTC is life-changing for me. And that the spiritual part of Yoga.”
“That I really like to give an asana class. I had never expected that.“
“What surprised me the most was that Pinky was able to break down my walls and was able to show me how I was thinking and behaving in life.“
How has your perception of Yoga changed?
“It was even more ‘about me’ than I thought. I was aware before, that Yoga is much more than Pranayama, Asana and Meditation, but I didn’t fully realise how much it is about the journey within, about self-growth, learning about yourself and making changes according to that.”
“Now I can see how much knowledge there is inside the Yoga philosophy. Before, I only thought Yoga was Asana, untill I came to Centre Lothlorien for the first time and see a Yoga Way of Life.”
“I thought Yoga was more about sports. Now I understand that it is more about spirituality.”
“My perception of Yoga has changed 100%. I did not know the vast topic that Yoga really is. It is so much more then just asana and knowing some popular words.”
What change in your life do you know you will make?
“To love myself and to question whether the thoughts that arise are true or not. There is so much more to Yoga than just Asanas and this makes me curious to learn even more. This is just the beginning!”
“I will give more priority to a good routine and good habits, including positive affirmations to myself. I will take time to learn and then apply it. I have learnt to check how I act and react and to think about why I do what I do.”
“I will eat better, take more care of my body and keep learning about myself to improve.”
“Live happier and healthier. It does not need to be perfect directly, but follow a good path!”
“I will eat more healthy, will reflect more on myself, focus on positive points, have better control over my emotions and be less egocentric.”
“Taking time to work on finding my basis, finding my truth, letting go and finding love within myself.”
What would you tell someone who is interested in following the TTC?
“Do it! It will change your whole life. You are never done with learning.”
“It is firstly not about becoming a teacher, but about figuring out who you are and how you behave in life. And that it is ver important to do so!“
“This is an experience to help you understand yourself better. It will change the way to look at the world. You can get rid of some burdens and probably be happier!“
“Expect that it’s going to be different than what you expect. Try to be as open as you can, it’s going to be intense! There is an interesting mix of different classes, the people here are lovely. You feel like it can be a home away from home. Centre Lothlorien is a good place for such an experience.”
