These powerful life transforming programs are designed to work on physical, spiritual, emotional, and mental aspects of one’s health.
In the modern world, unfortunately Yoga has been restricted just on performing asanas. We do not believe in focusing on just the asanas. Rather, asanas are just the one of the eight limbs while the rest being Yama (ethical disciplines), Niyama (rules of conduct), Pranayama (restraint or expansion of the breath), Pratyahara (withdrawal of the senses), Dharana (concentration), Dhyana (meditation) and samadhi (absorption). By just focusing just on asanas, many students have limited themselves to the physical dimensions. This is why we have carefully designed our courses to give a holistic approach to yoga. Subjects like yoga philosophy, mantras and meditations is what pulls many students to India.
We have tried to ensure that we offer the best possible training to our students. Our curriculum and modules are selected after years of struggles, experimentation and seeking answers ourselves. We are also fortunate to have a team of teacher who are firstly true seekers, which allows them to understand and empathize patiently and with love towards their students. We have a very humble, non-dogmatic and non regimented view towards teaching. Our belief is that there is no fixed yogi philosophy codes for everyone. Since, all of us are unique in our own respect, people will be touched by philosophies at their own time. Hence, our Yoga Teacher Training courses have a very unique approach when it comes to teaching Yogic philosophies, which is a mix of ancient wisdom and needs of current time with an friendly touch.
Our guided courses are designed to help you get back in good health and even take your yoga practice a step further while transforming your body and mind. We also lay an important stress on living naturally. Many problems arising in the body can be treated and cured by cleansing the human body through natural, eliminative and physiological processes. By allowing body’s inherent ability to heal itself, we offer highly effective yet easy to apply home detoxification techniques. This is supplemented by eating right. We offer pure sattvic food which is simple and supports your training.
Hence, we aim to offer an ideal space to unwind, explore yoga and about Naturopathy, find like-minded people, eat healthy food and relax in a supporting environment, so that you can go deeper in your spiritual journey.
