I chose to do my YTT at Kailash Tribal Yoga School because I wanted to learn more about yoga so that I could corporate it into my work as a mental health therapist, thus enabling me to provide a more holistic treatment that resonated with my own beliefs and inner wisdom. Also being a student of Buddhism I wanted to be in Dharamsala, and in the vicinity of the Dalai Lama temple and teachings, which have been an extra bonus in my time in beautiful, peaceful McLeodganj village in the foothills of the Himalayas. What I gained in the AYTTC 500 hours was much more than how to adjust someone in their asana position, but how to live a better life and how to help others to live a better life as well. Yogi Sivadas is a great teacher with a wealth of yogic knowledge and a life experience that he shares with his students. When I saw his website and course curriculum I saw that Yogi Sivadas was a well rounded, real person and I am grateful I have been able to know him, to have him as my guru. I am very grateful to have had this holistic educational experience and to further develop and nurture my yogic lifestyle and sharing it with others, so they may live healthier lives...with awareness. I completed the Advanced Yoga Teacher Training for 500 hours for Two and Half months. While there I also studied Reiki I Degree course, the Sound Healing course and Ayurveda Massage course with Yogi Sivadas.
