The students are trained to develop a strong foundation in comprehensive understanding of yoga, yogic philosophy and traditional yogic practices. It is also an opportunity to explore the ancient yogic wisdom, and open oneself up for inner transformation.

The online part of the course beginning with orientation on the 10th of July will span over 20 days ending on 31st July (except Sundays). Entailing 3 ½ to 4 hours per day of online classes, this module will consist of practical classes in the morning and theory classes in the evening.

Shri Ram Nath Kovind, Hon’ble President of India interacting with the TTC students
This yoga teacher training is an experience of a lifetime. I will not leave the same as I came. What sets BVYK’s yoga teacher training apart is that it has brought together rigour and depth of yogic understanding, with a constant undercurrent of love, fun and care. And it isn’t theoretical, it is palpably apparent that those that are teaching us and supporting us here on campus are practitioners of what they teach. Instead of preaching the path, they practice the path of yoga, which is a real privilege as a student to be witness to. Perhaps the greatest advantage is that all that we learn has been meticulously chosen by a living yogi, Sri M. And while this training has been quite challenging, by choosing to trust Sri M and his teachers, I have experienced growth and strengthening in places I didn’t know I needed to grow in. Whether you want to be a teacher or focus on deepening your sadhana, I recommend it to all those who feel passionate about the path of yoga.
I would like to acknowledge that this is one of its kind, very well designed and informative.
I feel very proud of our Indian philosophy and culture which has everything required to reach our final goal. Thanks to Sri M for imparting it in a simple way and making it available for common people like us.
I am having quite a profound experience at the TTC. The teachers are quite innovative & knowledgeable. Their grasp on the subject matter is commendable. Their rapport with the students makes learning that much more fun. It’s just been 2 weeks into the program & it already feels like family. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience for my TTC.
