People go to colleges or universities not just a degree they want to experience the life of the university. The environment really matters. You may learn yoga while in your home when it comes to becoming an expert in it. You need highly competitive environment. You are required to study a lot. In group and on your own.
The studio which is just down the road is fine too but deep in your heart you know thats taking you no-where.Let me give you a simple example.which sports game you would like to watch a local club match or the olympics?Which award show you value more, the local community award or the Nobel prize?
I am not telling you to start watching Olympics or the Nobel prize show. That you already do 😉 I am telling you to select a yoga place very seriously, that’s going to be the best one / two or perhaps maybe several months of your life. I have witnessed myself a lot of transformations happening.
PS: I know you want to come to India. Maybe now is the time to take yoga and your dream seriously.
