I have completed an incredible transformational month at Upaya doing my 200Hr Yoga Teacher Training Course, in Goa, India. Its hard to know where to start with this humbling experience, but I am so blessed to have found my way to Upaya Yoga. It is something that everyone need to experience for themselves as its such a life changing personal journey. Firstly I would say that this course is for everyone. even if you don’t want to be a teacher, even if you don’t know how to meditate, there is no limitations – in my group there was a 71 year old and she was incredible, so no excuses!. The programme is so perfectly structured and balanced, I felt like I got knowledge in all yogic areas. The days were always varied with Mantra Chanting, Meditation (also dancing and fun meditations!), Indian Philosophy, Anatomy, Asana practice, Pranayama. We ate so well with fresh local fruits and vegetables, beautiful home cooked lunches and dinners that were different every day. The teachers gave so much time and energy and love to each and every one of us, there every step of the physically, emotionally and mentally challenging journey.
The location in Goa is the best, the beach is on our doorstep, a river behind us. its the perfect place to studyYoga. The area to practice in the garden or sit and read a book is just bliss. I can not recommend this place higher, a piece of my heart will always be here with the beautiful people, and the lessons I shared and learned at Upaya. Krishna and the team. Thank you so much for everything. Namaste.
