Here are some things to do to prepare yourself for the course:
*If you do not yet have a regular meditation practice yet, please start now (about 7-10 minutes a day for beginners, 10-20minutes a day for progressing students).

*Please read The Yoga Sutras of Master Patanjali (I recommend the commentaries by Swami Sachidananda) and the Bhagavad Gita (I suggest that you read this in full and original text instead of commentary) and finally the Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda

*Watch our tutorials on our YouTube Channel

* If you are not confident in your practical skills, you can consider taking our online course before enrolling in the in-person teacher training
