5 treasures I found in my Yoga Teacher Training

When I enrolled to Pascale Wettstein’s Yoga Teacher Training (YTT), it was all for shaping my body. I had no idea I would learn so much about shaping my life … Invaluable Mindfulness I have started to appreciate the meaning of “being present” while practicing yoga poses.
