Our mission is to make this world free of diseases and unchain the humanity from the imprisonment of medicine. We approach the ancient science of yoga which is based on the fundamental principle of this practice- an amalgamation of body and mind. Unfortunately, conventional science has separated both. Our courses provide the future teacher with a holistic approach to make their practice more comprehensive. A holistic approach means that our courses go beyond asana. Our program reinvents the whole person by curbing their unhealthy patterns and sorting out their core issues & thus bringing back the body-mind connection.
We have refined the ancient training and teaching of yoga practice by inculcating neuroscience to make it more extensive and reliable. After completion of a programme, you will be able to transform yourself through the detailed understanding of the body and mind processes.

Trainees will learn the basic principles of sequencing and how they can use them for effective execution of a yoga session. The idea is to make them understand the elements of a complete practice and how they can best structure it to make the practice most accessible, sustainable, and transforming.
