When we talk about Yoga certification, we have to mention that we are not talking about sports certification. Yoga is, above all, of practical nature and its benefits are experienced, and therefore far away from a an intellectual, academic or university scenario. Yoga is a lot more than a mere technical knowledge or a philosophical experience; it is a life-wisdom practice.
It is a scientific, well-known fact that yoga practice promotes balance and well-being at all levels, that it delays aging, and that enhances the natural development of human creativity. To learn, practice and to teach is to be part of a beautiful and authentic tradition. Yoga is sought after due to its spiritual, therapeutic and not just technical character. It acts at a physical, mental and spiritual level and it helps in preventing disease and in maintaining a young body and a healthy mind. Yoga, being an integral system, leads to peace, happiness, health and self-knowledge. To be a Peace Ambassador or Ambassadress is a very noble task in our current day social panorama. With the advantage of sharing with others what you have learned. If you like yoga and if you have experience of this life millennial philosophy, join this universal family. Teaching yoga is an excellent work opportunity, in growing expansion.
