Important note from the Teacher
This is a special training in Anti-aging Yoga, it is NOT a bodybuilding oriented training or exercise.
This training is about an authentic mind disciplining and vital energy preservation training, so that you can learn to harness the power of vital energy to slow down your aging and increase your wisdom and vitality (mind power for right decision making).
In this training, you will learn about your body-mind-spirit constitution and then you will be able to understand what is the right work environment and home environment (rest, foods to be avoided for your particular constitution).
So, please don't arrive with a fixed image of a particular Yoga style that is popular in Europe and America. This is going to be a truly life-transforming experience for you and your future students.
Please come with an open mind and with an attitude to learn all that you can learn and experience.
