“Anyone can practice. Young man can practice. Old man can practice. Very old man can practice. Man who is sick, he can practice. Man who doesn’t have strength can practice. Except lazy people; lazy people can’t practice Ashtanga yoga.” ~ Pattabhi Jois. We believe that yoga is not a work-out; it is a work-in. This is the world of spiritual practice to make us know about opening our hearts and minds and becoming aware so that we can realize what we already know and become who we already are!

The practice of yoga is a lifelong journey, and there is no such thing as a competition of the self. You are unique, and so are your practice and experience. Everyone's practice is an individual journey. We do not expect our students to be on the same level. However, for your benefit, we suggest you have a foundational knowledge of the Primary Series and an established practice for at least 90 minutes per day over three months before your course arrives. This will ensure you get the best from your experience with us.
We recommend doing some preparatory reading and practice before you arrive in Rishikesh for the 500 hr Ashtanga YTTC. Try to get your body ready for the training by maintaining a 90 minutes daily routine of the Primary series for the three months before the course begins. Make a daily practice of your ritual and physically prepare for our course to get the very best out of your journey. To give your mind some exercise, here is some recommended reading to get you prepped and inspired.
Yoga teaches us to be flexible, both in body and mind! Changes are possible, but please bear the following: A student can transfer from one course to another at least one month before starting that course to attend a different course instead. We allow this transfer only once. If you cannot come, you can send someone to your place or contact us so we can let those waitlisted individuals know. If only the deposit has been paid for your 500 hour ashtanga YTTC, the new participant should pay you the deposit directly, and you both must notify us of the name change.
