YFI, is a digital yoga training, for our current set of circumstances.
After 21 years teaching with Yoga Center S.L., I (Gauri) wish to continue offering my know how in this my new digital training project imposed by the pandemic .
A challenging change, a paradigm shift in yoga training, until now always in person, always in close contact.
The initial months of confinement led me to use online media to fulfil my obligations to students already enrolled in person to person courses, unfortunately confined by a national lockdown.
A new phase
This new chapter reunited other teachers, who were teaching independently. The idea occurred that these independent teachers could share their expertise with those who still wished to benefit from the ancient tradition of Yoga.
YFI training is certified by AIPYS, a non-profit association, dedicated to maintaining Yoga training excellence for more than 30 years. Yoga Formación Institute issues diplomas approved by AIPYS.
To maintain that standard, each Yoga Teacher imparts his or her style or method with the integrity it deserves, realising that it is one facet of the many that make up those of the transformative traditions of India.
Yoga Trainers Courses follow the AIPYS diploma standards. and they place special emphasis on pedagogy. Those who teach them have an excellent reputation and are recognised for their highly personal styles. Check the difference for yourself.
Convinced that yoga is an extraordinary tool to promote a healthy relationship with ourselves, teachers try to offer that safe space that allows us to explore the dialogue between body and mind.
Integrity, respect and profound understanding, with a post post-modern pluralist perspective free of dogmatism.

In my childhood I competed for years as a gymnast in high competition. Afterwards I looked for a balanced discipline that respected body and mind without competition. That's when I discovered Yoga. It resulted in my taking the 500 hour Teacher Training at AIPYS and the joy of sharing Yoga with others as a teacher.
