We would like to inform you that the customary Indian methodology of designing the 200 hours Yoga teacher training course may vary from the western point of view. During the Course, it is very much possible that the Yogic path preached is on a very different level as preached in the Yoga schools of the west. Therefore it’s advised that the members accustom themselves to this methodology prior to joining the course.

In the event that you are expecting Yoga to be just a modified form of exercise than joining our Yoga school may not be the best choice for you as we preach Yoga as a way of life rather than an exercise regime. We recommend you to apply for our 200 hours yoga teacher training course only if you are prepared to elevate yourself to the severe system of Yogic standards and guidelines.
