Philosophy of the Teacher Training: Many people discover yoga in a time of need in their lives. Through many years of teaching Monika has witnessed how yoga has helped her students overcome numerous physical and mental challenges. Through the practice of yoga her students have gained a more positive outlook and have been able to make changes in their lives for the better and therefore become happier and healthier people.
Yoga is a recognized preventive and alternative healing tool. In the yogic sense yoga facilitates self-reflection and the discovery of the self at all levels -body, mind and soul. The beauty of yoga is that it is an effective method that works.
Focus and approach: The ‘Aspects of Yoga’ Teacher Training approach is to train and equip the aspirant yoga teacher with the knowledge and techniques that will enable them to teach skillfully and safely with compassion and integrity.
