YTTC with Yogi Sivadas was so interesting for me. I took one month for my practice, for myself and to change my life ( specifically my job). I loved the 2 kind of yoga. We used to practice Asthanga yoga in the morning and Hatha in the evening. It was very beneficial to learn 2 types of yoga, to find the balance and the best way for you and for your students. After YTTC, I felt ready to teach on my own and I opened yoga studio in France with confidence, motivation and peaceful. I am so happy to have done it. Yogi Sivadas is very kind with all of us and I agree with the way I teach. I used to follow all his instructions ( routine in the morning, regular homework). All the students was saying about me: « You are so serious,.... ». I think it was the best way. Just be concentrate and exactly know why you are here. At the beginning, I thought the language will be a problem. Sure it was very difficult but may be it was also an advantage because I needed to focus on the essential. Follow the essential, practice with patience, do the best that you can and go on your own...I learned more than that in August 2010! And what about the group? It was wonderful, a small group. Everybody were going on his own way but we have had some very very nice moment together. I miss all of them and may be ...a next time.
