    My name is Emily, I am from London and I came to Rishikesh at Ganga Yoga Academy to take my YTT 200 course and as I went by, I feel like a new person. The training was truly in-depth and learning new things were really wonderful. I met fantastic teachers who made complicated things really simple and it was really a good opportunity for me to enlarge myself and my practices.

    I realize that, actually, it is not about looking perfect and doing perfect poses, it is more about gaining alignment right through in-depth and true understanding of the concepts to be a good teacher. That's why, I came here to learn from the heart of Yoga to be a good teacher and I know there is a long way to go but I am now confident to take the challenges. Thank you!
