    A (Yoga Teacher Training) YTT course is curated to be intensive, and this will help you understand your physical body. You get to learn to listen to the cues of your body and heart as you practice, and this teaches you to design a practice best suited to your needs.

     

    • Learn beyond your Asana

    Yoga isn’t just a physical practice. Ancient Yoga was designed to unite the mind with the spirit. By diligently going through a Teacher Training course, you reframe the practice for yourself and understand its nuances – this may involve reading the ancient texts, practising chanting and pranayama.

     

    • Sense of fulfilment

    Yoga is multi-dimensional in nature. A dedicated practice of the art, through the TTC, can help you attain a deep sense of fulfilment as it transforms you mentally, physically and spiritually.

     

    • Connect with your inner self

    The YTT places great focus on meditation, breathing techniques and connecting with your inner self. Professional training can greatly help students to dive deeper into their minds and discover their true potentials.
