After successfully completing the Kaya Yoga teacher training in Bali, I came back to Switzerland to re-organize my life, personally and professionally. The year before I was working in the Balearics as an independent Yoga teacher for boutique hotels and private clients. It was an amazing experience, but I never really had the chance to teach the way I wanted. Besides going deep into anatomy, yoga asanas, pranayama, meditation etc. The Kaya Yoga teacher training gives a lot of usable advice for how to structure your business and next steps, so you can actually make a living out of teaching. There was a lot of change in my life right after I came back, I remember Kaya telling us that these trainings have a way of cleaning your life. And yes, it did! It took some weeks to get used to the change but then doors started opening! Now I am a lead teacher in a studio close to where I live, I had my first yoga retreat 4 months after the Teacher Training, and it was fully booked and a great success. Besides that I got the opportunity to work independent for a company based in London in the IT section. I am the head of sales and can basically work from anywhere I want, I only need my laptop and phone and have to join some meetings. I love both jobs so much and finally created the life I always dreamed of but never even knew is out there. It is the best of both worlds! – Cynthia Mehera, Switzerland
My first TTC with Kaya Yoga was the next stage on my own journey of healing severe scoliosis and alignment issues. I was expecting mostly physical alignment, but little did I know that this huge learning process would bring mental and spiritual alignment as well! Now I’m about to finish my 500-hours with Kaya Yoga school and become a teacher myself with the deep understanding of not only what scoliosis is, but most other back issues and the majority of health- and emotional issues. The Teacher Training not only gave me knowledge and practical tools, but encouraged me to do my own research, investigations and explorations; empowered me to improve myself and to inspire other people It gave me a strong discipline and deep understanding of responsibility when it comes to a working with people. By the end of my second TTC with Kaya Yoga I feel confident in working almost with any health issues with different ranges of severity. I feel that I possess wide a deep understanding of many inner and outer processes going on in our human existence, and can be of great use for those people who are stepping into this important journey. I can summarize right now the place where I am as: My scoliosis is almost healed, I don’t practice anymore, but dance my own Yoga, I’m feeling very inspired and ready to inspire others! – Iskra Volkhina, Georgia
The Kaya Yoga Course has been a life changing chapter of my life, the teaching methods used by Kaya yoga introduces the students to true essence of Yoga and also provides in depth knowledge of meditation, breathing techniques and posture alignments. Each module of Kaya Yoga Course unfolds like a new layer. After Kaya Yoga course I breathe well and I live well.
