Deepening the Practice, Grateful for the Knowledge
The most genuine experience in my yoga practice thus far. The loveliest yoga masters and teachers I have had. The truly memorable intense practice with Tirisula 200-hr yoga teacher training course. The priceless differences the course is making to my life.
“Yoga isn’t just about asanas” – I know that, but only understood the deep rooted meanings of that during this 200-hr course. Learning so much more about pranayama and meditation; experiencing Kundalini for the very first time; and gaining more insights to muscles and the body systems. All these, to me, are valuable knowledge and experiences in a yoga practice.
I have been attending classes in yoga studios for the past 2 years but they were all purely asana-based. Yes, some pranayama techniques were introduced by some teachers in some of those classes, but never in-depth. We just had to follow the teachers’ instructions and even when I tried to research more on my own, I found difficulty grasping the accurate meanings. Meditation was first introduced into my practice when I went for my first yoga retreat. That very first exposure to meditation ignited my curiosity and interest to explore further. Through this teacher training course at Tirisula, I am so grateful that pranayama and meditation are being well covered in detail that I can now proudly say that I have progressed.
Many asana-breakthroughs, as well, with the much muscle-wrenching exercises and practices. Within such a short period of time, my body got into asanas which were not accessible before. “The mind is stronger than the body” – A true sentence.
All in all, thanks to the masters and teachers for their selfless sharing of knowledge and ever positive energies in pushing us to perform to our best.
