It is also an opportunity to explore the ancient yogic wisdom, and open oneself up for inner transformation.
Teaching is through practical, theoretical and interactive method in a safe and supportive learning environment. The program is taught to a small batch of 25 students making it conducive for one-on-one guidance and learning.
