If you want to be at a better level of vitality for this Yoga teacher training journey, there is a simple piece of advice. I recommend taking a zinc supplement starting a couple of weeks before the course commences and continue during the course. It will help you feel energised and healthier. When you need to get up early to practice in the morning you will have a bit more get up and go.
Besides there are many benefits to zinc supplementation. Some of these are a higher ability to focus and concentrate. That is a very important thing when you are listening to your Yoga teacher throughout the day learning the techniques and practicing teaching them.

Here in this photo is one of my previous Bodhi Yoga Teacher Training graduates Kimiko during an afternoon Yoga posture clinic. This is a class where we break down specific postures and their adjustments. After students have learnt all the details from my guidance they break up in groups to practice teaching with each other. The posture in this photo is an advanced one. It is called set bandhasana. There are some easier modifications for those who cannot get into the fullest expression of the pose.
Remember to come to the course without any unnecessary nutritional deficiencies. Take your zinc regularly.
