This 4-week rigorous course encompasses advanced asana practice, teaching methodologies, chanting and philosophy, Bandhas, Kriyas and Mudras and anatomy.

The pace gets slower and yet, with each passing phase you feel empowered. You enter the deep oceans of the inner realms you never knew you possessed. You begin to realise that the biggest teacher in your life, is yourself.
