KALAA Yoga Teacher Training Testimonials
“I started KALAA’s yoga teacher training program in order to deepen my own yoga practice and learn how to become a yoga teacher. KALAA offered a helpful and supportive environment that was based on a knowledgeable foundation of vinyasa yoga. As a result, my practice has been deeply enriched and become much more well rounded. I appreciated the small class sizes and the guest lecturers. In all, I found that the experience cultivated an nurtured this lifelong process of practicing yoga. I would recommend KALAA’s teacher training program to anyone who is interested in developing their own yoga practice and the tools necessary to becoma a yoga teacher but is not able to dedicate more than one weekend a month to the process.”
Alain, Trainee 2014/2015
“Since forever I wanted to do a yoga teacher training. On the one hand because I strive to deepen my own practice, but also because I wish to share my yoga experience with others through teaching. When KALAA Yoga Berlin told me that they offer a yoga teacher training in Berlin I knew I would have to participate. Enrolling in the yoga teacher training changed my practice. I have a deeper knowledge about the philosophy and what yoga is, aside from Asana and Pranayama. The yoga teacher training also changed me and I found new friends. I can recommend the KALAA yoga teacher training 100 %.”
Eva, Trainee 2014/2015
