Becoming a Teacher by Photographer Jon Chiang

Yoga Chitta Vritti Nirodha: The restraint of the modifications of the mind-stuff is Yoga 

“In the fall of 2013, I touched down on the tropical island of Bali along with 19 other yogis to embark on a 25 day inward journey towards becoming yoga teachers. The little regency of Tabanan became our home — surrounded by devotion, Hinduism, expansive black sand beaches, and the powerful surf — this place gave us the space for our hearts to expand. Through morning asana and pranayama practice, meditation, lectures and practice teaching, our mind, bodies and spirits were challenged to open to the teachings of yoga. Led by our teacher Suzanne and her assistant Alli, we were passed down their wisdom, learnings and experiences, expanding our own yoga practice and creating the path to becoming teachers.”
