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.

Deepanjali Gupta

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.


Vidya Srikanth

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.

Karthik Bhat

F A Qs

There are so many yoga schools, how do I know which one to choose?

It is true that there are many. Here, at BYVK, the foundation has been laid by the living master Sri M’s vision is to share traditional, authentic knowledge of yoga across the globe. Here is an opportunity to be part of this vision. Access to the Babaji’s (Sri M’s Param Guru) meditation room is also provided. Batch size is kept small to ensure utmost attention and learning.

What to expect from the 200hr TTC program?

The course content has been conceptualized by a realized Master, Sri M
More time for refining self through Karma Yoga which helps deepen the practice
This certification will enable the participant to teach yoga to others after stipulated period of self practice.

Will Sri M take any sessions?

Sri M will take a few sessions as per his availability. The details and dates will be announced during the course.

Do I have to be physically flexible to join this course?

Each person has a different body type, some are naturally flexible and some are not. Yoga is much more than just the asanas but you will surely gain flexibility and strength through the course duration

Can I take this training even if I do not intend to be a yoga teacher?

A yoga teacher training program is a life changing experience. Consider this as an investment in yourself, in your personal development. An opportunity to re-discover life, knowing oneself, acquiring tools and techniques to deal with life peacefully. Though it is mandatory to take up the online examination, sharing and spreading this knowledge bringing about a positive change in the community is up to the participants.
