Yoga Teachers Training


Yoga is not a religion, it’s a science and it’s an art of self-discipline.
Yoga is not just another sport; it’s a life changing activity; it’s a systematic way of living life.
Practicing, learning or teaching yoga in any style, from anywhere will invite peace, happiness, health and prosperity into your life.

You just need to have an Empty Mind and an Open Heart, rest we will take care.

Yes, TTC is like planting a seed in your mind which will emerge as a huge tree as the time passes. Only thing you need is, to nourish the seed every day. Remember that when you will be teaching and helping others, the knowledge that you will get is more valuable than years of practicing and studying.

There is no compulsory need of any prior knowledge or practice of yoga. However, it’s always good to have some previous experience. TTC will guide you about your practice and teaching. Remember that is not about the quantity of time you spend in your practice, it’s about the “quality”.
