“The YogaUP’s virtual teacher training course gave me an overall introduction of
“what is yoga”. I have gained both textbook-learning knowledge and practical knowledge
of yoga through this course.
Prior to taking this course, yoga to me is an exercise. I used to practice yoga to keep fit and
to get into shape (toning muscles). And I used to only stick to hot classes as I thought they
are the only type of yoga that could give me the effects of a proper workout.
Since the course, I was introduced to other kinds of yoga and I have developed an
appreciation for unheated classes as I realized they are just as beneficial and challenging.
Now, yoga to me is more than just a physical exercise, the mind plays an important part too.”
— Florence C.
“Through the course I believe that Yoga is not only for people with a healthy, flexible and strong
body, but that Yoga is for people to become healthy, flexible and develop both a strong body as well as mind.
We have learned about the totality of practicing Yoga which leads to training the body and mind,
and about physical and mental balance and stability through Asana, meditation and pranayama, and
many more shared learnings.
I also learned the importance of building up strength as well as opening different parts of the body to achieve the pose. In order to build up the necessary strength and flexibility of the body, it’s important to understand the focal point of the pose. Also practice with hands adjustment in class was very interesting and useful to know in order to support and correct other people’s asana poses.”
— Atsuko Y.
“I have learnt both physical and mental areas of knowledges in this course.
Although this course is not aa in person course to study but it is a worthy course to spend time on it.
This course is a whole new level to me, it has brought me the much needed mental clarity in this
chaotic world and taught me mindfulness.
I am thankful to all the Yoga teachers in this course, who taught me Yoga is more than a physical exercise.
— Hetiz W.
“This training changed my perception a lot about yoga before this course I thought yoga was just flexibility,
but now my perspective changes, now to me Yoga is about life.
When all these things get together you can see the meaning of yoga and you can add them in your life.
I am really happy that I joined this training and looking forward to and start my teaching thank you ChauKei!”
— Ozlem D.
“This training changes how I view Yoga.
It’s not about how others see you, it’s not about simply doing Asana or pranayama, it’s about connecting with yourself, it’s a personal journey for everyone. It should be non- judgement, no competition,
and no matter what your chronological age is. When I step on the mat to practice
regularly, I can see how my body, mind and breath are different each day.
Another important change in my perception to be a Yoga teacher is I should teach students what they need rather than what they want. Alignment is much important than the form of yoga pose.
And we should look at an Asana as a process rather than a final product. “
— Kenix C.
“The course is so student centered.
ChauKei has practiced what she preaches in this course and applied her yogic knowledge in
bite size pieces for everyone and anyone.
She makes everything so accessible to all lifestyles. The pre-recording video is super user friendly,
Its easy to navigate, its clear what each video is talking about and they stay on topic!
I can go back and find the appropriate video so easily! and not have to scan through a
2 hour video for 20minutes of content.”
— Nisi N.
“YogaUP creates a genuine community in which everyone dives in and learns in positive vibes.
The content of the training covers al the fundamental knowledge every yoga teacher needs.”
— Sally T.
