500-Hour Yoga Teacher Training in Italy, Beach
Learning the techniques of yoga and mastering the posture requires a lot of time and dedication, the reason why this course runs for nearly two months. During this course, you will be discovering new ways to perform asanas, reading informative books not just related to yoga, but to become more disciplined and dedicated towards your profession, and communicating with others.
Becoming a teacher is far more difficult than becoming just a performer. To be a teacher, a person must possess the ability to transfer their gathered knowledge to someone else. Being targeting such skills, we allow our students to not just master yoga, but their teaching skills as well.
This course will let you know about the physiology of yoga, different postures, history, scientific explanation, meditation, and Ayurveda. Understanding such concepts not only helps in becoming a better yoga teacher but in the overall development of an individual.
