It is often forgotten that the first objective of the practice of yoga is to improve conditions for the person to which it is directed. It is said that the practice should take into account the need of the person. The person and needs? To know it is essential the listening.

The Yogaterapia that teaches Victor Morera It is based on that key. 'Basically is listening. The ability to listen is the result of self knowledge through training of the development of care and sincerity. A yoga teacher cultivates the presence, the awareness of the soul in all things. If I see you as a soul, if I hear you like soul, my hands and my words speak yourself as soul, what we do together will have that quality that transcends us and create relationships that we heal."
