I was very interested to learn that Shiva yoga Peeth requests as part of their examination process that students have to write a review on the training including the accommodation, teachers and food. This review process has to be submitted prior to the final exam!!
When I read the reviews I wondered why they were all so Indepth and also so good. For those wishing to train here please be aware the reviews you read appear to be orchestrated by students not wishing to fail by writing. A bad review.
From what I have heard of persons training at this venue, the venue is nice but incorrect information has been given by:
Being told prior to attendance that yes you can teach Ashtanga yoga once you have qualified here. The. When you arrive you are told no you cannot. As one must train with the jois lineage . Although this is not correct and you may have insurance to teach hatha yoga, Ashtanga is under the umbrella of hatha and therefore when a student has sufficient training in a different style they can teach within their scope and knowledge safely they can teach and be insured to do so.
The first information given was correct and yes you can teach Ashtanga but conflicting advice given.
The 3rd issue is the anatomy. It would appear a diverse group from various nationalities struggle with English terminology and simple terms as opposed to anatomical terms are used : thigh bone not femur and a lot of time is spent with the English translation ' this is an elbow' .
I wanted to write something to balance the scales as to have all good reviews that have been forced upon student to be pre- writer prior to an exam process is unfair and unjust .
