The 45 days which I spent in 300 hour yoga teacher training course in the month of December in 2017 with Spirit Yoga Foundation are memorable one. It gave me an opportunity to learn hatha yoga and ashtanga yoga in one go. I started practical training with basic asanas in combination with adjustment & alignment. The practical session of asana series was completely enjoyable. I learn to support my breathing with gentle physical movements (or yogic asanas). As the day advanced, I learned standing asanas, backward and forward bending asanas.
