Philosophy

Message from the teacher: "A sādhaka (yoga student) is a person who has the intention to experience life though the Self. As a result, purification happens to every level of existence and unconditional Love is revealed."
 

The studies are based on the following pillars:
 

✅ Qualitative education without Western-style interventions

The teachings are revived by ancient, classical and carefully selected modern scriptures. Extensive educational material is provided in English language. The students acquire all the necessary tools for their own development and will be capable to teach with comfort and self-confidence.

✅ Yoga sādhanā & 24/7 Yogic Holistic Living

Through a holistic approach, students experience Yoga on and off the mat. By living "in awareness" throughout the day and by applying yoga techniques, students will notice fundamental positive changes in the way they experience life.


✅ The Art of Teaching


Although it is not the intention of all students to teach, experience shows that by leading session, students go deeper and deeper. Even though we are learning remotely, the students' internship includes planning, course analysis, course observation and extensive practice.
