Often I am asked what type of Yoga I teach. First I thought there was a simple answer to that question. Then I understood there wasn’t. Eventually I gave up trying to answer it. I would just answer: “My Yoga”. Which of course ain’t to far from some kind of truth.
I was trained in India by my teacher Saji P.K.. Straight from the beginning Saji told me and the other students: “Yoga is way of life, do not care if you become Yoga teachers. Try to become Yogis instead!” By that simple commandment my path was paved.
I did get three certificates after three months of training. The papers they say: “Certified Hatha Yoga Teacher”, “Certified Advanced Hatha Yoga Teacher” and “Certified Yoga Therapist”. And all the knowledge that came with these papers was very beneficial for me and many of my students.
But that knowledge was not enough to become a Yogi. To become a Yogi I had to transform my very being and grow beyond mere knowledge. And only by having more experience of life I could do that. How can one experience life more rather than less? That was the art I had to learn.
And that is the art I started to teach.
