Why choose our yoga teacher training program
Our teachers come from the Krishnamacharya linage, which is a profound yet practical approach to Yoga, where all the tools of Yoga are implemented and wisely adapted to meet the needs, abilities, goals and requirements of each student. You will learn to approach the body not just as a physical construct, but as part of a holistic entity.
We are a registered yoga school with Yoga Alliance.
