Come into the pose to an appropriate depth,
Give the body space to open up and invite self to go deeper,
Resolve to be still,
Once you have found the edge, you settle into the pose and let go of the movement. Rest in the posture for some time.

200 Hour YTTC Student
I just did my 300 hours TTC at Shree Hari School in Kudle Beach and I can easily say it has been a life-changing experience, as well as a big game changer to my personal yoga practice. The location is amazing, just 100 meters away from the beautiful beach and all its amazing energies. The teachers are all highly qualified with great knowledge about asanas, philosophy, Ayurveda, and anatomy. They are people who dedicated their lives to the practice and discipline of yoga and their passion is so contagious and inspiring! Everybody loves to serve in the institute, from the teachers to the wait staff and the cooks (who have been accommodating us with three delicious and abundant meals a day!). It is more than just a school to get a yoga alliance certificate. It is a community to be part of, a yoga legacy of people passionate about making a positive impact and I am very happy to be part of it now! Namaste and Much Love!

My experience at Shree Hari Yoga school was beyond any expectation! The teachers are amazing, kind, and knowledgeable. The place, Kudle Beach, is a paradise on Earth. The accommodation is perfect. Nice, small huts with shower and a relaxing view. The program was very intense with a lot of theoretical and practical information, and great guidance on all aspects of the yoga path. Asanas, pranayama, meditation, art of teaching, philosophy, and anatomy. I absolutely loved this yoga teacher training and I will definitely be back to Shree Hari Yoga school in the future.
