Whatever is your level and goals we are here to facilitate your spiritual development and growth.

What will you learn?

The first step of learning is to unlearn. They like to start from a position of 'not knowing' and then diving into the practice with a fresh mind and practice what resonates with you and your body-mind complex. Ashtanga Vinyasa is a fixed practice but during this training. You will learn many other techniques that will help you improve physical and spiritual abilities. These techniques are specially designed by them to help in identifying and removing obstacles to your practice. You will learn the art of connecting one posture to another. The practice of moving from one posture to another with breathing is called Vinyasa.

This knowledge will enable you to formulate your own sequences in a safe and systematic manner. Pranayama and meditation are an integral part of this course. Every morning, you will learn the correct techniques of breathing. You will also be introduced to safe practices of pranayama to teach your students. You will also learn Sanskrit mantra chanting.

The most important part of being a yoga teacher is to have a full understanding of the philosophy and aims of yoga, which starts with understanding the meaning of yoga in its true sense. The next important part is adequate knowledge of the anatomy and physiological systems of the body. With a proper understanding of these aspects of yoga, you will have a blissful personal practice as well as teaching practice. You will get sufficient teaching practice during the course.

Why this course is for you?

From ancient times sages, swamis, seekers, priests saints, and sadhus have been coming to India to experience the divine promise, the nectar of spirituality, and a flavor of authentic spiritual practice from Indian masters. Many masters went to the west and took with them the knowledge of yoga to the whole world. But, how do you choose a yoga school that can live up to this divine promise in this new age India?

If you are looking for a traditional yet evolving yoga practice, this is the course for you. What they mean by traditional but evolving? They take inspiration from the tradition but, without the dogmas and without putting your own minds in a box. A fixed tradition is a dead tradition. They experiment and evolve, they like to see things as they really are without accepting anything and without conforming to anything. They like to see what resonates with us before accepting it.

If you are looking for a yoga course that is unrestricted and taught by some very enthusiastic and energetic Indian yoga teachers then this is the course for you. If you are interested in questioning your own conditioning, your false sense of reality, and your acquired ideas about who you are? This is the yoga school for you. Yoga is freedom. They invite you to come and discover the real self of you.

A typical day

The yoga training schedule begins at 6:00 a.m. with morning prayer followed by a pranayama and silence (Antar Mauna) session.
