Here is a short checklist to make you feel fully secure before doing the TTC in Adishakti Yogashala:
- You are willing to learn: the teacher training is an intense program, starting early morning around 5 a.m. and finishing at 7pm mostly everyday. You will learn so much in such a short time; if you are looking for deep Yoga learning and practicing, the TTC is made for you! If you are wondering when to relax and chill at the beach, we suggest that you stay a few more days after the completion of your TTC to enjoy the amazing surroundings 🙂 And of course, you will have the time to pamper yourself and relax on free days.
- You are ready to experience a new lifestyle: have you ever heard about “unlearning to learn” famous quote? Well, this is a very important point. Be open to new flows of energy, of knowledge, and let yourself go with this new culture and discipline. In our yogashala, we all put our habits, yogic knowledge and life experiences aside to learn something new and relearn something old.
- You have done a physical and psycho check-up before arriving: if you have any doubts on your physical health, any latent injury (joints inflammation, back problems, muscle pain, or any minor injury) or psychological issues, we recommend visiting your doctor or therapist before coming to India. There are plenty of good doctors and hospital here – but it important to start this life-changing practice in good health conditions!
- You prepare yourself “a little bit” before arriving: “curiosity is the engine of achievement”. We encourage you to be curious about Yoga before starting the TTC. This will help you a lot in the understanding of the classes. We can suggest you to have a look at (NAME OF BOOK 1) and (NAME OF BOOK 2) or listen to (SWAMI VIDEOS) to get into the Yoga mood, and get used to the Sanskrit asana names for example. We hope this will help you on the first steps of the yogic path!
- You are 100% mindfully dedicated: this TTC is not tailored only for advanced and super-flexible students. You will be surprise to discover that many people from all over the world, of different ages from 18 years old to 99 years old and different physical backgrounds are daily sharing the same love of Yoga in our yogashala. Yoga is not about being bendy, but about slowing down and seeking for the dormant power inside of you.
