Our Teacher Training Courses
Highly qualified teacher, very helpful, were like family, the courses are great with a lot of knowledge, philosophy, and information.
As I have been told, practicing yoga will "serve your mind, health and spirit". In less than a month, I realized that this statement cannot be more true.
I believe success is a journey that begin with Small Wins. Having an institute in the region with the potiential of Arab Yoga Foundation (AYF) is the right step for promising tomorrow.
I am honored to complete a Yoga Course in AYF and be part of this amazing family. My experience, although challenging, was extremely rewarding...

What can I say?
You will practice hard, you might cry, but you will laugh hard, mostly you will learn hard, you will tear your hair out sometimes yes, but some other you will feel like wanting to fly!
AYF provides the rigid bridge you will love to cross for building a firm foundation as a yogini. In fact AYF courses gave me keys and ways to unlock better knowledge and practice, helped me drop bad habits, and cultivate many good others; I gained much more from the course than I anticipated - and I had high expectations -
Books usually prescribe basics, but there’s no replacement for a teacher, a guruji who can tell you this is what I have been through, this is how I reacted and acted, and these were the results it led.
Thank you guruji Nouf For sharing your skills aquired through your experiences, your valuable lessons and advices; I was lucky to learn from a consistent, persistent, compassionate and warm hearted teacher like you, thank you.
I DO highly recommend AYF courses!
