SSYTTC08 – Journey of Integration
Sri Sri Yoga & Part-1 Course: A Journey of Integration
This is not about why you should go on Sri Sri Yoga. It’s about my journey as a Part-1 Teacher through it.
I recently participated in the Sri Sri Yoga TTC in Fuzhou, China. Expecting to do just seva, I ended up instead on an intensive combined TTC1&2 program plus seva!
As a Part-1 Teacher, I never did fully appreciate yogasanas let alone Sri Sri Yoga. My whole focus fell on giving course points, 3-stage Pranayamas, Bhastrika and the Sudarshan Kriya. So when I was invited to be on the Sri Sri Yoga TTC as a participant there was plenty of resistance and complete bewilderment.
Towards the end of the 2-weeks I was asked why I wanted to become a Sri Sri Yoga Teacher. I replied that I don’t know. Whether I become a Sri Sri Yoga Teacher or not wasn’t the point. I know already this course have made me deeper and become an even more effective Part-1 Teacher.
Sri Sri Yoga showed me how absorbed I had become in the technical application of the Part-1 Course. The clarity and precision in applying the knowledge points for peace-of-mind became mental gymnastics-managing thoughts to harmonize the experience.
Through Sri Sri Yoga, instead of focusing on harmonizing the thought or experience for peace, I was taken directly to the source of peace and joy.
Sri Sri Yoga has brought me integration. A beautiful journey and experience in the totality of Knowledge. It is such a blessing from Guruji. Jai Guru Dev!
