The Bihar School of Yoga 4 Months Yoga Course

Bihar School of Yoga

Finally, after such a long wait my wish became true and I had the opportunity to join last October the 4 months Yogic Studies Course at the Bihar School of Yoga in Munger, India. I had wished to visit this ashram for such a long time. I actually sent my application with two years in advance! Not surprisingly they were not able to process it then, I'm sure they never received such an early application.

When I was planning this journey to India to deeply study and practice yoga and meditation I also thought about doing some volunteer work. However I wasn't able to find anything that really inspired me and most volunteering organizations that I found on the web charged quite a lot of money to become a volunteer, so I finally desisted on the idea.
