The aim of this intensive 200-Hr Teacher Training Course is to train and certify 20 up to 30 serious yoga practitioners who want to deepen the practice of yoga and embrace the holistic and authentic approach to the age-old practice of yoga and will eventually share this to their own communities. Thus, the design of the curriculum not only limited to the physical facet of the practice by intensifying the poses or “Asanas” but concentrates more on meditations, knowledge about its benefits to individual’s health and wellness as well as the philosophical aspects of yoga.
Our step to invite Yogacharya Chetan Mahesh and his team from Rishikesh, India to share to us here in the Philippines the authentic and more in-depth knowledge about yoga is in line to our grand vision to make yoga more accessible and affordable to average Filipino people. We also made the price of the course relatively cheaper than the usual Yoga Teacher Training Course to be true to this vision.
