I feel, on this course we worked very little on feeling and listening the body and on staying into the body (maybe this is called mind in body). Mostly we did physical exercises with the indication of focusing on one's body. I found very interesting the search for one's limitations with the purpose of overcoming them.
I was fascinated by the vast knowledge of the philosophy and the history of Yoga, but also intrigued by his ease and neutrality towards religions.
I also appreciated his particular way of teaching, full of good humored personal irony.
My experience with this Authentic Yoga Teacher Training holiday has been very very good. As an experienced Pilates teacher, of over 20yrs as well as other movement's methods and physical therapy, I had a lot of confirmations from Neel's experience. I'm very happy about it and also about a lot of interesting new points of view I was able to come in contact with. However, the most important thing for me is to keep focusing on oneself, respecting one's own limitations and gradually try to overcome them. Trust in your creativity and smile with both your face and your mind!!!
But first of all, thank you Neel!!!
I appreciated very much Neel's course. His approach is clear and direct. I think that I have had a lot of new ideas. It wasn't just a memorization of a series of body and mind exercises. It was a way to understand in a practical way what Yoga can be: not only a philosophy, but also a method to better understand ourselves, to improve and try to reach self realization. The work with body and mind is the first step for a deeper work. Everybody in their life has their own time. Take that time to better understand what the real needs are, this is a great time. This was my first time. I feel well, more energetic, focused on finding my time to practice and teaching yoga. It will be useful for me and for others.
This Yoga Teacher Training has been one the best things ever. It has been a great professional and personal self-growth experience. Neel was able to convey his method that brings to a continuous listening of oneself, focalizing on one's goals, understanding one's own limitations and bringing out one's abilities. It's been a great gift to be able to live in contact with such a fantastic Indian teacher: I've been inspired from him and I thank him for the trust that he placed in me.
I feel really joyful about this experience. Every single time someone is going to live through an experience, certainly he has expectations. Today I know that the course, the people I met at the Alpe della Luna, my teacher Neel, they all gave me more than I ever could have imagined or expected. I'm happy! The days were busy, sometimes tiring, but with a balanced pace, and most of all peaceful. Even though we all worked hard, I feel completely reborn, for some aspects even reset.
This could be a new beginning. In Love anything is possible.
