Three years ago I attended yoga sessions with Padma.I appreciated her way of ntroducing me step by step in the world of yoga.I couldn’t forget this experience, and this year I came back to India thinking about the possibility to became myself a yoga teacher. I felt deeply that I could choose the yogic path as part of my life. I attended a six weeks teachers training course with Padma. I worked very hard, during group class and individually with Padma. I learnt  yoga practice, pranayama, yoga philosophy, chanting and meditation. The school is located in a beautiful setting, in the jungle and near the see, where the concentration and the peace of the mind comes naturally. With Padma you slowly enter in the concept that yoga is within you and her kindness and long experience in teaching yoga guide you to become a good teacher.I thank Padma of her help.
