MSYFE – Mobility Servce of Yoga Federation of Europe

The Yoga Federation of Europe has put into action a new service in order to encourage mobility, i.e., student and yoga instructor “exchange”. Exchange will be conducted using the principle of reciprocity. The applicants will be guests staying with students or yoga instructors for approximately 10 days.
Those who meet the conditions can submit an application form in order to participate in the exchange program.

The goal of this mobility  project is to increase expertise via mobility: by meeting other yoga instructors and getting to know the unique methods of their work, as well as by gaining unforgettable friendship within the cultural ambience of various European countries. The applicants will get to know and compare similarities and differences in approach and interpretation of yoga.
In the spirit of humanness and respecting diversity, getting to know and to understand different approaches in the field of yoga can enrich your experience and contribute to personal proficiency.

The project ensures support for yoga teaching students and yoga instructors in order for them to gain the skill and competence needed to perform within their professional field in the best possible way.

The friendships realized during the exchange provide and promote additional apprenticeship possibilities for students and young yoga instructors willing to gain skill and competence needed to perform activities in the field of yoga.
