“The 200 hr program was a great experience. The program is not just about memorizing theory, but to experience yoga in a deeper level trough a committed daily practice and self observation, leading to a path of self knowledge and personal growth. It gave me a solid foundation to be able of share the IYI ashtanga routines with others, by experience them on my own first, and for me that was the beginning of what has become an essential part of my life, which is the practice of ashtanga yoga. ”Alejandro Arrangoiz
