The unique hands-on approach of IYIC has certainly boosted my self-confidence and my speaking skills. I feel so happy that now I can earn extra income by conducting yoga classes on a part-time basis, which is as good as the income in my full-time job!
Today, I have completed Self Mastery (Kriya Yoga) and Super Yoga Kids Instructors Course and have been conducting regular yoga sessions in schools (as a karma yoga project), sharing the holistic science of yoga with my corporate clients, friends, and family, amounting to more joy and satisfaction!
Completing the foundation level of IYIC has given me a totally new perspective of what yoga really is. It’s the first time I have experienced breath awareness and am becoming more sensitive to my own internal circulation and energy flow. It feels great!
Signing up for IYIC was like a “retirement plan” for me and I didn’t plan on starting to teach even after I graduated as I was quite comfortable with my full-time job. But with encouragement from Master Mani and positive support from my classmates, I plucked up the courage to start teaching part-time, and have never looked back.
Learning the proper way of yoga practice in IYIC helped the healing of my knee, which was injured during gymnastics. My muscles have also been strengthened by the right techniques.
IYIC taught me the perfect techniques to teach, learn and embrace Yoga. This invaluable lessons and experience can never be explained through words, and I thank my destiny that it has allowed me to meet the people in MAYI Yoga Academy and Master Mani.
After joining the weekly yoga foundation classes, I decided to go further with IYIC. I realise now how IYIC is much more than physical exercise. It is a deep and rich science that requires knowledge and patience.
What I really liked about IYIC is that we were taught how to penetrate asana deeper,understanding how to go beyond our ” body memory” limitations and even touched on own personality development of sort.
We learned to be non-judgmental and compassionate when teaching. At the completion of the course, we took home priceless knowledge and some wonderful friendship.
Acquiring ancient wisdom through a master yoga teacher is the best investment in one’s life. It’s important for us to be prepared by understanding the true benefits of yoga as we do not know when we will need it. I have been teaching yoga classes for 2 years and it speaks volume When you are certified! And the learning doesn’t end here… I have now also completed my Yoga Therapist Certification at Yoga franchise.
The IYIC has taught me that yoga is a mind-body science. It has helped me manage my emotions, deepen my self-understanding, enhance my leadership skills and guided me to a more disciplined lifestyle. It has also given me a skin that is glowing and radiant! Teaching full time and running a yoga centre is a very meaningful experience for me.
