The experience overall was life changing for me personally, It helped me to get more focused and to go more inwards. The teachers were great they did a good job helping with every aspect and alignment in the poses, emotionally and physically. Thank you Vari and Rachel for the time and effort you gave each and everyone.
Thank you for this transformational experience.
I have not anticipated how much of a transformational experience this would be. Our teachers supported us in every way, helping us both to breath into difficult asanas and out of difficult emotions. The wide range of experience held by each teacher made them be able to offer us the most well rounded and well informed introduction to yoga teaching.
This training was an intense learning experience. Of course I learned a lot about teaching yoga, but also about myself. This experience confirmed that I want yoga to be my way of living for the rest of my life. At the beginning of the training I was wondering will I be able to make it? With commitment and persistence I did make it and I am proud of myself and of everything I learned. I really appreciate the energy and the wisdom of the teachers, they are really great models for us future yoga teachers. Now its time to go back home and apply all the learning n my teaching practice and I look forward to it.
Thank you Vari, Rachel and DR. Ganesh
Coming into this training I really had no idea what to expect. I barely even knew what ashtanga was. Now at the end I feel like a I have a pretty decent grasp on the idea of ashtanga and full confident and comfort ability to practice as well as teach the sequence we have been taught. Arriving late due to travel complications I thought might set me back and give me a disadvantage but Vari and Rachel threw me right into it and pushed me to catch up and stay with the class. Both teachers were supportive and nurturing in their own way and have really inspired me to continue my journey along this yogi path. Overall an incredible experience.
Thank You All Yoga Thailand!
A life changing experience on many levels.Physical as well as personal. Long days, short nights and feeling fully submerged into what life could be like as a yogi and yoga teacher. The balance between tough and soft for me sometimes was a little off. But i think that mainly has to do with personal preference( and drawing back into your soft spot). I loved the posture clinics and the jump through and jump back workshop. Whish we had more of those. Vari is a very strong teacher in many ways, with eyes that look through you. We butted heads many times, but his strong character and will power are inspiring. Rachel the soft one of the teachers but with such a subtle power inside. I feel that she has tons of experience and knowledge and I wish we could have seen more of that.
Before coming to the course I have heard from other teachers that it would be the most physically and mentally challenging and transformative experience. Well I certainly agree with that and the rewards that comes from the discomfort are well worth it. There were a few obstacles like the Vulcans nearly disrupted and I would arrive late, and I became quite sick during the training but the teachers and the other students were really understanding, supportive and encouraging. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone wanting to further pursue their yoga training, become and discover the hidden warrior in you throughout the guidance of amazing teachers .
Coming into the course I expected it to be a majourity of time dedicated to practice and teaching in order to prepare me for all that being a yoga teacher involves. With most days running from 7.30am until 7pm, I was surprised to find only 1 to 1.5 hour dedicated to practice teaching per day. That said what we did during the remaining 9-10 hours of the day changed my life. From the many methods of meditation I learned, to the wonders of indian philosophy, my mind was expanded and I connected to what I now recognize as soul. Variprovded a dominant, tough guy personality which pushed me to be the best I could be without making anything easy, and Rachel provided a beautiful contrast in personality, highlighting the importance of connecting to your body and moving in a way to protect from injury. I’m very grateful.
I came into this training with the sole purpose of deepening my practice , but I have gained so much more than that. Obviously my strength, flexibility, knowledge of the asanas has improved a tremendous amount, but more importantly I have been given the tools to teach a real live yoga class. I am actually starting to think that I may be able to actually lead a class. Vari and Rachel are such knowledgeable and caring teachers. You can go to them with any questions you may have even if its outside class hours. I loved every moment of this training and I feel like a completely different person from the person I was on my first day here.
I actually cant believe we are at the testimonial part. I remember Vari saying on the first day “Be present “, the next few weeks will fly by.They have!
This experience has taught me patience,compassion and to go easy on myself, this will also be transferred to those around me. Vari constantly reminded us to “Be Present” observe who is on your mat. From day one the teaching has been amazing. I love all I have learned and will use MPS as my main foundation, the creative ideas and suggestions to mix it up will provide endless creativity.
I rediscovered my passion for teaching, whether its teaching yoga or anything else. I meet a lot of amazing people from all over the world, we shared good times and bad. It was good to see everyone’s teaching improve so much in such a short amount of time.
