What can I share that fully represents the experience of a TTC at Ashiyana. Most importantly it is something that you have to experience yourself. I did the teacher training last October and I still feel its loving light radiating from inside of me. It is as if I’m walking around with an inner treasure, that only my teachers there and other beautiful yogi students I shared this with, know about. What Ashiyana offers is a wonderful base and growing experience where you can lift of as a new yoga teacher, being completely unique and asked to really live from within your heart to share your love of life and yoga. The place is beautiful with lots of quiet places where you can feel one with nature, a real sanctuary. I felt really safe and at home. It is like creating a yogi family there. There is a high quality of teaching and all teachers are such positive and open beautiful different unique beings. They all add on to the knowledge you need to elevate your yoga experience to a new level. Akhilesh as an asana and philosophy teacher gives you the fundamental grounds on which you can build your experience as a yoga teacher. His laughter and positivity is famous and contagious. His focus on alignment and strength building still helps me today. Yamuna with her divine feminine (acro) flow fills you with love and light. She is such an inspiration and she does not only teach you about Bhakti but in fact is Bhakti Yoga. Chloe, our soft spoken beautiful always being positive anatomy teaching yoga bum. Her love for yoga, anatomy and beach fun has helped me through lots of difficult anatomy classes.
Chandra and all others make everyone feel so at home with a wonderful open presence. I treasure all of the experiences and people I met there! I went to Ashiyana without expectations, of course I did have the hope that it would be what I needed to learn and inspire me to share my light, but being open to all is I think the only option in that way you can experience and make that experience an unique way to grow. I wouldn’t have wanted to do my training anywhere else. Ashiyana was the perfect place for me! I had so much fun during all the hard work!
If anyone wants a loving life changing experience while learning to teach giving yoga Ashiyana is the place to be. Oh and as mentioned many times by others, the food is so good!!!
