Did you know the ancient Yogi used Sun salutation not just to worship Sun but to start their day with Yoga? Focus on Pranayama with our one week retreat. This is a retreat in the yoga capital of the world which brings you closer to the world of Yoga and ancient Vedanta (the Hindu scriptures). You'll learn techniques of Hatha Yoga and meditation including Pranayama.
Additionally, we also offer you free introductory learning in Vedic philosophy, meditation, and chanting in the course. And this is offered to all participants at no additional cost. The word "Vedanta" in our name stands for the philosophy & knowledge based on the ancient Hindu scriptures. We firmly believe in imparting this basic knowledge so that the Yoga Teacher we train have a more wider perspective and can connect to the ancient art of Yoga more firmly.
