There’s no doubt that our minds are overstimulated and constantly on the go in today’s world, leaving us feeling stressed, anxious and depressed. Before I set out on my yoga teacher training journey, I was working flat-out in advertising, constantly feeling tired and exercise was the last thing on my to-do list. I felt completely overwhelmed and unable to cope with not just my job, but my life outside of work too. I was binge drinking on weekends and in a bad cycle of ‘work hard and party harder’ that I didn’t want to be in. My energy, confidence and will to do anything, other than Netflix and chill, was out the window. My physical and psychological health was at an all-time low- and I knew it because I actually noticed it.
While most people think that yoga means creating harmony and peace within body, mind and soul, it actually means “Chitta Vritti Nirodah”.

The countless benefits of yoga lead to a more peaceful, healthy and happy life. If you are interested to learn more deeply about yoga and understand the alignment, anatomy and philosophy of yoga as well, you must have been looking into doing a yoga teacher training.
If you love yoga as much as I do, you must have considered turning this valuable lifestyle and art of living peacefully into a career. Becoming a yoga teacher has been on my mind for a long time before I actually committed. It took some time to manifest my dream as it felt scary and overwhelming at first. Now, looking back, I understand that it had to be like this so I could jump over my personal barriers and break through something that didn’t suit my nature. In this post, I will share a few insights of becoming a yoga teacher with you that focuses on all the amazing benefits that this job brings along. Get a cup of tea and enjoy reading…????
The word „Yoga“ is derived from the Sanskrit root „Yuj“, meaning to join, to unite.
It is a system of breathing exercises, physical and spiritual disciplines, all originally designed to
bring the yogi to samadhi – the state of enlightenment.
As yoga offers a holistic approach to life, its teachings can be very valuable to modern society.
In ordinary western school you do not learn what to do if you feel fear, anger or frustration. You do
not understand what they are or where they come from. You do not know what it is to eat really
healthy. You do not learn what it means to keep your body in good shape and physical health and
why that also is important for your mental wellbeing
I’m Camille, a 26 year-old adventure lover, globetrotter and yogi on a mission. When my mother passed away at the early age of 40, I was completely devastated. I totally lost all joy in my life and desperately searched for a way to relieve my grief, pain and loss. I was in deep depression and didn’t know how to get out. At 22 I had my bachelors degree, but was feeling like the last years have only passively passed away. During my studies I didn’t even socialise much and never went to party or anything like that.
Figuring out what we want in life can be a huge challenge. That’s how it was for me after graduating from university.

I stumbled across the Yoga India Foundation via a yoga blog and it immediately caught my attention.
