-Half a year ago, I figured out that wanted to do some yoga teacher training. I googled my way and found bookyogaretreat.com . My points of criteria were place, price, testimonials and teachers. My doubt choice were between 2 schools and the result is now ending the course at Akshi Yogashala. There are always expectations and wishes on for hand by giving feedback. You can express feelings towards your experience. I can create a whole story about it, out just want it to keep it briefly.
