About the Y.T.T : There are many books that analyze Yoga positions and how to get into them properly, but the practice of yoga should preferably start with a qualified yoga teacher, since it is not recommended to teach yourself . In the West the most interest is focused on the postures of the body (Asana) becoming fashionable, practitioners hope to tone their body to the required shape.

The Yoga Teacher Training by “Breath of Life” Yoga Center, attempts to put the yoga practice into a larger context, in which yoga students will receive an integrate knowledge and understanding of the ultimate goal of yoga training that’s “freedom” and not missing it by concentrating only on the technique. We are running a 200-hours Teacher's Training course, which almost covers every style of Yoga. The Teachers of y.t.t having a sound knowledge of yoga are giving their valuable time to explain the correct practice and theory of yoga.

It is also a great place for those who are in search of health, happiness, peace and harmony.

The more successful a yoga teacher is, the more knowledge his/her students experience in the principles of yoga .The teacher gives all the information he has on asana, pranayama, meditation also relates on the aim of yoga lighting up the transformation of the body but also the awakening of the student’s spirit.
