Centered yoga Reviews

Education in Yoga… First, consider this:

I welcome your desire and interest in taking the necessary steps to pass on the message of yoga to others. The world has many professions and careers full of people getting ahead but only a few sincere individuals dedicated to focusing on inner growth, with a desire to help others.

Becoming a teacher involves much more than just doing a course and getting a yoga certification. It requires your full commitment, a deep interest and a sense of duty, and the discipline to continue and grow in your practice. Without these, teaching becomes a job and not a vocation, and you will fail to communicate to your students the true message of yoga.

”Excellent! The program was very thorough and well-organized. I feel I was able to make the very best of my time here. I feel privileged and honored to have studied under Paul’s guidance. I truly appreciate his commitment, time and dedication in sharing his knowledge and the tradition of his teachers. Paul’s teachings are clear, always interesting and full of humor. Elonne was very sincere, dedicated and compassionate. I have learned so much from her presence and attitude towards yoga and her teachings.
