The unique thing about our Yoga Teachers training is covering everything effectively in 4 weeks time frame. Usually most of the schools focus a lot on Asana practice and learning and neglecting demonstration and instruction part. So what really happens is that it no more remains a Yoga Teachers Training but kind of regular students learning program. Although, Asana learning is definitely important but no one can master asana in the times of 3 or 4 weeks. It requires a persistent practice to master asana, gain control and poise. It all depends how much and how often you practice after you walk out of your TTC. We understand this and our focus is also on imparting crucial teaching instructions, rare practical teaching techniques, ethics, Yoga as a profession which gives you confidence to teach during and after your TTC. We strongly feel that the very purpose of Yoga Teachers Training is helping the students and teachers to gain confidence as a teacher. We expose you a lot for practical live teaching in the class room set up, observing others, voice throw projection, body language, We understand that this is not going to be your first and last learning program as we firmly believe learning never stops even as a teacher.
Note: Yoga Teachers Training ( TTC) certificates will only be awarded after the completion of the course successfully as per the standards set by the institution for the course. Students must follow the Code of Conduct & Rules and Regulations during the entire stay for their course.

We take only 5 to 6 in one group as you can’t focus if you have more than 6 in one group. We work with small groups max 6 ideally 5 as we strongly think that Teachers training in one month needs to be addressed quite systematically and big group set up can be worst for both teachers and Students. We have been fulfilling this challenge effectively for past few years as we work with tightly knitted and structured course contents and focused teaching techniques. Most importantly, we work with small groups. We set realistic teaching outcomes and work with day to day plan and teaching hours. Individual focus, achieving teaching and learning outcomes is the most crucial aspect in the intensive short term teaching courses. We truly understand and address it over here.
