TTC review

Jag gick denna utbildning i våras, rekommenderar den varmt! Jag fick bra verktyg att jobba vidare med, blev mera medveten om hur lite jag vet om yoga, att min resa för att bli en bättre lärare och medmänniska precis har börjat.
Upplägget passade mig perfekt, jag hade tid att låta det som jag hade lärt mig smälta in, det fanns tid för reflektion mellan gångerna.
Tack Rajesh 🙏 och alla andra som var med i våras💜
