Something special can happen when you spend every waking moment with people that you just met, and for a whole month! The group in the Yoga teacher training, the students, assistants and teachers were all very different personalities but sharing the same goal, trying to deepen our existence and purpose in life with yoga. We became a tight international family that I am lucky to be apart of, and am now saying goodbye to until next time!
These are the beacons of light, the new yogis that will now be sharing yoga with the world. They are strong, kind, adventurous and incredibly funny! Anyone would be lucky to learn from them!
