WHY CHOOSE MSY PROGRAMS?
At Multi Style Yoga International, we believe that no one style of yoga or that a single practice is 100% sustainable. We all go through different periods in our lives within our physical bodies, our mental, emotional, and spiritual states, our energy, and how much new knowledge we are capable of taking on. This is why, at MSYI, we honour many different styles of yoga and other practices anchored in the tradition and the roots of yoga, including Yoga History & Philosophy, Critical Alignment Theory, Functional Anatomy, and Modern Nutrition. We blend the ancient philosophies of yoga, Ayurveda, Thai Yoga Massage, and Traditional Chinese Medicine with modern anatomy and movement to create safe, well anchored yoga classes, and empowered individuals. Just as we recognize that no single practice is 100% sustainable, we also believe that no single training program works for all students. This is why we offer a number of Programs around the world, all designed to kickstart your yoga teaching career, deepen your personal practice, or advance your existing knowledge. To become a Yoga Instructor, it is not required you acquire all 200 Hours at one time, or in one Training. All of our courses will count to your teacher accreditation, will not expire, and every hour will simply add to your educational portfolio.
