Our Vision for our Hatha Yoga TTC in India

Yoga Practice beyond the asana

Yoga means “union” in Sanskrit. In order to understand this true yoga of union, we must learn how to harmonize our body and mind in a way that cannot be achieved solely by asanas. While there are indeed countless benefits from asana practice, it is only the beginning. Many people reach a point in yoga when they start to ask themselves the question: “What’s next?” After a few years of asanas practice, it’s natural to wonder how you can deepen your studies. At that point, many students start to look to India to discover the origins and history of yoga. We just not only conduct the Hatha Yoga Teacher Training programme but it also exposes you to rich spiritual experience of a lifetime!
