Christy Maksoudian / November 2019100 Hour Yoga TTC in Chiang Mai, Thailand
“I’M GOING BACK THERE!”. The school gives a holistic experience on yoga and its philosophy, breaking the western stereotype that yoga is a “stretching” form of exercise. It provides you with the basic fundamentals of how to establish a blissful life, from proper breathing rituals, Ayurvedic diets, and asanas to establish a healthy body, and various types of yoga and meditation to establish a mind body balance and proper flow of prana. The group was quite international and the teachers exceptional. They have a true understanding of the west and are able to bridge the west-east divide through their philosophies. Plus the food was amazing! Great excursions, musical night bonfires, and the cutest dogs roaming around. It has the perfect pace for a program aiming to provide a holistic and basic understanding of the various aspects of yoga in such a short period of time.
