how to become a yoga teacher,yoga teacher training europe“When you start this training you are engaging in a big challenge with yourself, both physically and mentally. You grow day by day in the yoga. It is a very intensive program taught by very professional teachers. Together with the volunteers, it is a team always ready to help you and support you. All the pieces of the puzzle are there but they will all fall into place once you are back home. It’s a once in a lifetime experience.” Yvonne, The Netherlands


how to become a yoga teacher,yoga teacher training europe“The teacher training course at the Arhanta was very challenging. We had to study and practice a lot, but we also learned a lot. I especially enjoyed philosophy classes. Now I have a good knowledge of what yoga is. I enjoyed also the different qualities of all the teachers and I especially valued Ram’s asana class because we started to experience that asanas are comfortable and steady positions and this is my goal for the future; to go deeper and deeper in my practice. Thank you very much!” Simona, Italy
