Teacher Training in Dongguan
We spent the month of April in China spreading the message of Yoga and universal peace with eight budding new teachers!
The opportunity arose when a former student of Om Yoga Academy reached out to discuss the possibility of hosting a yoga teacher training course at her studio. Our staff already has a plethora of experience teaching in China, and so, naturally, jumped at the opportunity. It means a lot to everyone at Om Yoga Academy to maintain connections and relationships with students. The teacher training certification is only the beginning. We love to visit former students and explore future possibilities with them.
The Chinese students were very eager to learn from experienced teachers, and their passion for the traditions of yoga was evident from beginning to end. Shatveer, being a local of Rishikesh, really gave the students a taste of the cultural roots of India that yoga surrounds itself in. This is not to suggest that only Indians can transport this ancient wisdom, but it definitely brought some famous Indian spice to the Chinese pallets!
All in all, it was a fantastic experience for everybody who was involved. We are already planning and looking forward to our next adventure on to Chinas rich soil!
