To have a personal mentor, someone we could reach out to made the journey a lot easier. I could make parallels from the theory classes to the practical aspects of not just the practice, but also the way in which I lead my life. So I really appreciate this holistic learning experience.
I learned a lot and improved my asanas, pranayamas and other aspects of Yoga. But what touched me the most during this whole eight week course is the generosity of the heart, the love and support shown by our teachers.
Sahaj marg – Heartfulness has changed my life, in so many ways. I got clarity into all the questions that I’ve been asking myself. And of course, the love and the support that we received from all our mentors, it’s just really been phenomenal. Eternally grateful for this experience.
We really could feel the qualities of a yogi through your teaching, through your help. I can feel more grounded and people around me notice a difference in me, a kind of openness and presence which was not there before.
Its been a life changing experience. I have become more disciplined, more responsible, and I have started to feel more fit in my life.
I can see the integration of yoga and meditation and also I am feeling how it has been molding me. I am looking forward to applying it further and am motivated to take a 90 days challenge including 1 hour of practice in my daily schedule.
It has been an amazing journey of 8 weeks. Specially, the last 2 weeks were the intensive one. Initially I felt hectic, but I am thankful to the entire team for bringing yoga in one common umbrella, especially the booklet and the sessions that we had. I knew only little about yoga and heartfulness and then coming all together in one group was really really inspiring, amazing, and definitely to walk in the path of yoga. We have so many motivations to move further on this path. I will definitely work into it and bring my family too in this practice.
It was truly a life changing experience for me. A 2 weeks of intensive training and Special thanks to the entire team of TTC200 hrs, we couldn’t experience this amazing journey without you guys.
Now I feel more connected to myself, body, mind and spirit and everything moves faster in balance with this new energy.
When I think of where I started, I did my first yoga class over 20 years ago and I did not know what it was until I joined heartfulness yoga.
Heartfulness meditation, chanting all of that just made the whole experience much more deeper. I Will remember this and all of you for the rest of my life.
I was really happy to be in this space that you all created. You create a universe of love and professional knowledge with a very high attitude of teaching.
I really appreciate how the course was designed and delivered. The approach was very individual, catering to the needs of each student.
I approached this course like a retreat and it did allow the transformation of my inner condition, my relationship with others. The atmosphere created was perfect to dive deep.
Such a supporting team! We felt part of a privileged learning atmosphere.
I was looking for a school that can deliver solid knowledge and I am glad I found this school.
