I believe that pain or disease is a manifestation of a block on our consciousness. I didn't want to do a yoga teacher training to become a teacher per se, but to understand what was going on in my body that was in so much pain every day for about 5 years and got to the point that I could not sleep. When I started this training I could barely sit for more than 10 minutes without pain, let alone do a downward dog! After the training, the pain was reduced 90% and I have gained so much mobility in my whole body that I can do all the postures I want and more. What I also loved following the teachings of the Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh that I absolutely admire. The level of support provided is huge. The price is incredibly low compared to others. A must!
