Gopi Sandal's Yoga with Heart Teaching Training holistically immerses us in all aspects of yoga and what it means to live with integrity, intention, wonder and joy. Gopi teaches how yoga can help us re-inhabit our bodies, bring greater compassion to our communities, and bask in the light of our spirits.
Yoga with Heart Teacher Training engages each student teacher with joyful instructions that deepen practical understanding. Developing the necessary detailed techniques to incorporate into teaching methodology allows the light of practice to shine in each teacher’s heart. The training environment supports the growth of each individual and fosters a community of bonded Yoga teachers. Every class session inspires awareness and provides the teacher with knowledge integrated into applicable skills. Gopi’s guidance is supreme Yoga teaching, a true benefit to all who attend this heart filled training!
In the fall of 2008 I traveled to India for an extended length of time and I started practicing yoga on my own on rooftops, with the assistance of B.K.S. Iyengar's Light on Yoga. After a few weeks of solo practice, I began meeting with teachers and I explored many different teaching styles. These were all useful experiences and I learned many things but it wasn't until I met Gopi a few months after returning from India and then began the yoga teacher training that my practice really began to solidify and become my own. In the past several months of teacher training, Gopi and the many wonderful guest teachers she has brought in have led us on an ever-blossoming journey of self discovery through the teachings of ancient practices (sometimes modified for the modern world) done in the bhakti tradition. What a treasure for me to have discovered Bhaktivana, Gopi and all the students I am privileged to learn with! This is a training that will never end.
Thank you, thank you.
